    I'm starting this thread to kind of keep all of the WZ NE NSW/SE QLD refugees together in one thread. You can consider this a successor to the “day to day” thread in WZ.

    This thread can be used for observations and predictions in the region. I’m sure a snow pic from Far North NSW would be appreciated in the main observations thread for snow events. But for all other discussion for this region, feel free to use this thread.

    If anyone has suggestions or thoughts, please share them. I’m sure the mods and admins will change as they see fit.

    Why "BBQ" ? Sounds a bit of a devaluing of serious discussions. Suggest just " NE NSW/SE QLD Thread.

    As this has been started I can start my daily and monthly observations( plus extras when needed ) - tomorrow.

    It’s the way we have always called general threads, but I’ve changed it now.

    FYI. ‘BBQ’ is welcoming vernacular, it’s inclusive and it just organically evolved a long time ago as a generic term for a general thread within the scope of the sub-topic.

    yay. Bonza . well done 'jellybeans'. and thanks
    separation anxiety from WZ forum decreasing. We are so appreciative that you have taken us on board. Its good to feel welcomed and accommodated. Thought l might try to upload a satellite snap l took tonight of moisture in the region.
    Moist onshore flow, 500hpa trough involved. Not bad considering mslp was around 1026hpa at Coolongatta today
    Massive northward amplitude of the cold front and trough in the west of Oz denying the ski fields the best of its load .
    Cold front to dip,to the SE into the Bight

    OK. Easy. Insert picture works

    Thanks for starting this thread up, I might one day go for a snow chase seems quite fitting for this forum.

    As for the upcoming day to day weather the odd shower here and there, but what is the upper trough doing?, seeing some promising signs of some wet weather for parts of QLD perhaps some inland. Sort of better than nothing maybe something of interest. Look forward to exploring all these threads. there's a beer thread..nice

    A few brief onshore showers here bringing 1.8mm in the 24hrs to 9am this morning, and 1.0mm since 9am. Last night was unseasonably warm (and I mean 'warm' by July standards), and it looks like the nights over the next few days will sing a similar tune of pleasant minimum temps.

    July 2019 Rainfall: 2.8mm (July Avg. 76.5mm)
    Year-to-date Rainfall: 643.0mm (January-July Avg. 1011.2mm)

    Looks like a decent swell this coming weekend, 6-9ft going by the models from Sunny to Gold Coast. Some showers on the Goldie today that eased as the afternoon progressed.

    About as good as it gets for our part of the world. Unfortunately, the upper trough over Central QLD is forecast gradually weaken and slide eastwards overnight and tomorrow, restricting heaviest rainfall to the Central Coast and offshore, while leaving us primarily under the influence of this bloody ridge which means miserable, windy with maybe the odd shower here and there.

    A unique scenario for July with that long E'ly fetch. Although the convective stuff looks to be exclusively maintained by Marine Instab.

    Thanks Mega. I am exploring this forum alternative. Looks easy to use including uploading pics (I never worked out how to upload pics on WZ).
    Looks like you had a good rain band last night.

    Relatively wet last night in Southport wind was probably making things seem worse

    Light passing showers on the train to BNE this morning with patchy overcast most of the way.
    Looks grey to the east and clear to the west in the city

    View of low level cloud in SEQ this morning. From Ipswich, looking north to D'Aguliar ranges.
    The D'Aguilar mountains behind rise to about 300 to 400 m above sea level, so I would be guessing these clouds are about 100 m above sea level.

    Looks like Ski gained a instant new family branch, like a get together. Some light clouds coming from the north here now looks grey but not sure if we get to much in the next few days.

    Although I am not a huge contributor I've signed up also. I often lurk on the WZ QLD board to help schedule my work. :emoji_camera_with_flash: I found the contributors on there often were more accurate than some of the traditional forecasting.
    Glad to see there will be a similar forum for me to geek out about the weather on.

    Hi folks, weatherzone refugee here. Long time lurker so I think it is time I finally signed up!

    Weather wise it has been showering on and off today in Toowoomba, although not much has registered. Winds maxed out at 76km/hr, only the exposed islands had stronger winds. If you didn't have a synoptic chart to rely on you would have thought there was an ecl on the coast.

    Hi all, a cold wet and windy day on the tweed coast today. One of the few day around here which feels like winter. Anyway, hopefully this thread can gain some momentum over the coming weeks.
    Thanks heaps to ski forums for accomodating all displaced wzoners

    Welcome everyone, glad you are here hopefully others will make the treck over aswell. Looking forward to posting some pics and charts here.

    Presently showers have continued throughout the day, a few heavy bursts aswell which has been quite nice and refreshing SE'lys. Some rain for inland parts would be nice also, currently quick glance at GFS still showing some places inland to get maybe 10mm seems to be focused to central QLD but the upper trough looks to weaken over the next week and pushes back west which might bring some precip for the western regions but the Darling Downs left in the middle once again.
    Followed by a cold change.

    Gee the outlook isn't looking good, check out the size of that high coming into WA next week which only seems to crawl across the Bight later on in the week. Bleh.

    Geez this on off rain, that is barely rain, with a few mm here and there, is getting tiring. If it is going to rain in winter then I wish we could get some decent totals over few hours and with a decent amount of time with clear winter sky days which is when SEQ winters are the best. Days are too short in winter to have too much time under clouds. Maybe I should not say that cos the ski folk probably thinks opposite with clouds being good for snow. Also I am sure Warwickeye2sky would welcome any rain just beyond the ranges.

    I recall seeing somewhere that this thread wanted BBQ removed from title as it seemed to devalue the meaning. I prefer no BBQ in title also.

    These two posts toward the top of this page will explain :thumbs:
    In other words, from our perspective, 'BBQ' is Ski's equivalent to WZ's 'Day-to-day' threads.

    The intermittent onshore showers continue here. 5.8mm in the 24hrs to 9am, and 6.2mm since 9am.
    Orographic enhancement of precipitation quite evident along the Dorrigo escarpment with 25-65mm falls in that area during the 24hrs to 9am:

    Hey Richard. Sorry I don’t think anyone was asking for BBQ to be put back in the title. I agree with RWM’s comment early in this thread and would prefer no BBQ. The seQld neNSW community from WZ are really keen on the weather

    Next seven days rain forecast output of EC is below (from Meteologix)
    GFS is quite similar perhaps more optimistic for ne NSW. Access G more pessimistic.
    Edit note. Sorry actually seven and bit day totals

    Ok,

    I'll switch back, but I think you'll find that the original weather BBQ we been running here is quite serious. The snow system 'Prediction' and ' Observation' threads are 100% no nonsense and BBQ in thread title is how we distinguished the relaxed from the V serious.

    Anyway's it's your WZ gig with these geo obs threads so please have it your way.

    Great to see everyone migrating to the same place together On the road at the moment, it’s terribly dry from Jimbour to Uralla. Warwick Eye2Sky, you guys look dreadful Never seen Warwick so dry. Got some showers overnight at Uralla which continued all day yesterday through Walcha, Nowendoc and Gloucester. What a beautiful part of the country I must say! Now at Soldiers Point trying to figure out why locals are wearing jumpers lol.

    After the models talking rain back at home at Jimbour this weekend for the last week it’s all mostly disappeared as usual by the day of the event on the forecasts. Ironically by the radar it does look like it’s getting showers anyway! Fingers crossed.

    Will see what Oberon and Dubbo look like in coming days
