Mid afternoon here, but it was so misty, it was hard to tell if it was fork or sheet lightning.

Had a few flashes during bright morning sunlight a week or two ago. Quite weird.

Another warm, sunny day here in Brisbane town (our superlative run continues). Spent the better part of it inside again though (renovating). Very tempted to find a stretch of water and go for a refreshing swim!

I have probably seen 600-800mm of rain since June 1st,
despite Brisbane's "winter dry" averages.

Two solid weeks without rain just hasn't happened for me this winter in Australia.
I suspect Perth had some before I arrived, and Brisbane had some after I left.

Conditions are looking promising for thunder later on, Towering cumulus building up. 20C with a 15C dewpoint (at 2.00 pm) and a balmy N sea breeze

Nelson, across the bay from here, is buried in cloud down to sea level.

Not sure when you left Brisbane for Perth, but I don't think Brisbane even had any clouds let alone rainfall in August. I gather September hasn't been much different.

It's looking pretty likely that the September record high will be beaten on Thursday this week. OCF, a forecasting system that combines the output from multiple weather models is forecasting an incredible 37.5C for Dalby on Thursday, higher than the previous record by 1.7C. (OCF Forecasts for QLD: Darling Downs - east) Even Applethorpe and Stanthorpe at high elevation are expected to exceed 30C, almost unheard of in September. These temperatures will actually be the highest since January this year.

In fact, this September is likely to end with an average high of about 29C here in Dalby (5C above average, about equal to the record), which would be higher than the average high in February this year, which was only 28.6C. I doubt that has ever happened before.

Here is a list of the average temperatures at Queensland weather stations so far this month. Numbers that are highlighted yellow mean that a new record is likely. Already lots of stations heading for a record and after this week's heatwave, I suspect that this number will increase.

Hopefully the interior of the country stays hot come summer. It means a better chance of summer for us.

just as I predicted.... high temp fell WELL short of the forecast 27C, naturally, and there is no sign of any thunderstorms on the radar whatsoever

On the other hand it's a balmy 23C right now at 9pm, second warmest city in Australia atm
