Guyra this morning. Melted a bit during the day but now it’s started up again, temps -1C so settling.

Yesterday, skies turned overcast here about mid-morning. There was mammatus overhead here early yesterday afternoon.

A little bit of spitting rain fell mid-afternoon yesterday, but it wasn't enough to be recordable.

There were sunny skies throughout today.

The next chance of rain here looks like being on Wednesday as a cold front moves through. It currently doesn't look like much, maybe a millimetre or two.

Maybe a little south for “NE NSW”... but down towards Niangala, about an hour south of Armidale, it was really, really deep. Looked more like the road up to Thredbo during a storm! Trees had come down, roads were shut, I only got out that way because I took a back road and had 4WD... few sketchy points!

The Niangala area is a great place for snow, and has a tendency to outperform Guyra / Ben Lomond even though it is for the most part 100-200m lower in elevation. Being 120-150kms further south has its advantages, and I suspect the sharp increase in elevation from the Tamworth valley area over about 30kms from 400-450m to 1100-1200m assists with orographic lift. It's kind of isolated, so it doesn't get the recognition it deserves.

Awesome mammatus photos by winter standards!

And that's a great advice re the snow. Most people think of Ben Lomond/Guyra when they think of the best place for snow so Niangala sounds like it's vastly underrated and overlooked.

GFS has Yeppoon on just 15 deg MAX next Sunday and Rocky on 16 deg,

Townsville 17 deg and Cairns 19 deg max.

Brisbane 19 deg.

Wonder what weather system is behind that ...

If it eventuates..

@Vinny GFS has a small rainband up that way due to an upper trough. But EC currently doesn’t. Mind you, some websites display GFS data that is excessively cool.

Only a light patchy frost here this morning. 8th frost of the season here so far which is a bit more than halfway to the average annual number (14) of frost days here. Will be interesting to see if we can exceed the average this year or not. Frosts look like continuing here during the next few days.

Different story for the Granite Belt where once again, persistent cloud cover kept min temps up again. The daytimes in the wake of the front have been very cold though e.g. where I was in Ballandean, I didn't see the sun or blue sky at all yesterday with on-and-off drizzle all day and daytime temps hovering at around 7 to 8C for most of the day. Also above is the speccy looking satpic and 500hpa winds on Thursday.

As PeteJ touched on, SEQ’s next chance for a bit of rainfall looks like being later this week with the next cold front. Could also be some embedded thunder in it for some places also (as well as some rather unseasonal outbreaks of storms in more northern and inland parts of QLD and NSW).

Any comments about the cloud over Toowoomba currently this morning?

It looks very unique to me , also very icy looking in the atmosphere.

Ahhh looks like you got the almost exact same cloud formations that I saw here yesterday. I can't remember if there's a specific sub-classification for that cloud in the WMO cloud atlas but my first impression was a hybrid between cirrocumulus and a high altocumulus but above the top of its usual height range i.e. similar mechanism that causes altocumulus but occurring higher up at typical cirrus heights.

According to yesterday's observed sounding, the cloud would've been at a height of around 23,000 to 26,000ft where temps were -25C to -35C which is fairly common for up there... so a lot of that cloud would've been made up of ice crystals. I did see some cirrus adjoining those clouds as well.

was that the Ken Kato just now on Bris ABC news???
Yeah I'd say it probably was @Multiversity
Did a bunch of radio and TV interviews around then, including with the ABC. The media always love to go crazy and want interviews whenever there's snowfalls forecast even though it's happened many times before LOL
I usually don't have time to see what stories I appeared in though so the only way I often know is when friends tell me.

Images 5 to 7: One of my maple trees ablaze recently with the last remaining autumn colours but there's not much remaining on the tree now. It almost looked like it was on fire at one stage.
Image 8: Some frost here this morning was joined by a layer of shallow mist.

Something going on up Gladstone way into the central highland area. Even though it was never going to be spectacular looks like any hope of some reasonable rain from the next system is gone and nothing after. I always remember a quote from a farmer east of Warwick a year after cyclone Debbie. It went something like this "This time last year my farm was mud, and now it's dust"
Sandbank, when I see your pictures they always take me back to those summer holidays in Stanthorpe way back in the mists of time.

1st image - The very gusty colder westerlies towards the end of the working week in the wake of the front showing up in the EC ensemble meteogram for Brisbane.
2nd image - Nice view of the clouds with last Wednesday's approaching cold front captured by Bianca Williams in Algester and shared to fb (have also included the link).
Remaining images - Another morning of frost and shallow fog here this morning. 9th frost of the season so far. There'd have to be a prolonged unseasonal warm spell during the later half of this winter/early spring for us to not reach or exceed the average annual number of frost days this season.
Min of 2.7C here this morning.

From memory, yesterday's forecasts had 10 to 15kt rather than just 15kt. And this morning's issue has "westerly about 10 knots, locally reaching up to 15 knots at times".
Banana Bank got close to 10kt this morning and so has Inner Beacon, with gusts just over 10kt.

Some pics above. Image 1: A beautiful sunset that appeared while I was at Aratula the other day. Images 2 to 4: Stanthorpe the other day. Images 5 to 7: One of my maple trees ablaze recently with the last remaining autumn colours but there's not much remaining on the tree now. It almost looked like it was on fire at one stage.
Image 8: Some frost here this morning was joined by a layer of shallow mist.
You seem to have an extended autumn season Ken with those Maple trees and their fiery colours!

That particular type of maple (the October Glory cultivar of the Red Maple) is one of those trees that dosn't actually peak until the end of autumn @wernerk
Also, I took the photos of the maple a couple of weeks ago so it's well past its peak now.

So maybe some rain later this week?

@chunky yeah but I wouldn't get that excited. As far as SEQ goes, totals should be fairly low for the most part although some luckier spots might receive a bit more if some reasonable convection happens to go directly over them.

Before the next front goes through late Wed or Thu with the narrow decaying band of precip though, there's also a temporary window of opportunity for some sneaky localised showers and/or thunder with small hail for some places at any time from overnight tonight/early tomorrow through Tuesday as midlevels become colder again.

Here's that initial activity approaching SEQ that I was talking about in last night's post. We'll have to see if it makes it to the coast and whether it'll be followed up by a bit more activity later today or not.

So I did my usual duty of feeding the cat this morning and heard this rumbling and assumed it was a truck on the highway, but it kept happening and realises it was a storm. Cat is under the lounge and rain has started. Looked at Warwick gliding club webcam and raining there and then looked at radar. What a morning.

A number of hail reports so far from the Downs. Not surprising given the cold air aloft. Above is an example from Jimbour and shared by Ravyn Warzecha to fb. This winter so far has been a good example of why it's not always wise to completely write off all action after the end of summer.

Looks like even Access C (latest 18Z) missed this morning's storm approaching and on the range
Lightning strike rate looks impressive for a winter storm

It sure did. And so did the previous runs. In contrast, EC has had some stuff moving over for around this time although didn't have much overnight on the Downs. EC ensemble indicates quite a number of members with precip for Toowoomba from early on though.

Woken by distant thunder this morning that then took it's sweet time rolling over. Lots of lightning and noise and now finally rain. Looks nastier than it is thankfully. I'm fully under it now at Bell and cracking and banging nicely. My mates workshop in Jimbour got hit with lightning about an hour ago, sparks flying everywhere! Some nice consistent rain this winter so far :D
