  • On the 9th a high pressure system moving into the Tasman Sea extended a ridge along the east Queensland coast and extended onshore winds along the coast and became more onshore on the 10th as the high pressure system moved further eastwards, which brought some showers to the southern Queensland coast. An upper level trough cleared the far southern parts of the state early in the day.
  • A high pressure system on the 11th near New Zealand shifted eastwards as a new high pressure system shifts eastwards over south-eastern Australia. As a result the ridge remained over the state with some showers along the exposed east Queensland coast
  • The high pressure system moved across the Tasman Sea on the 12th with the ridge across the state remaining, which continued to extend some showers along the east Queensland coast, mostly on the exposed coast.
  • On the 13th a large high pressure system over New Zealand extended a weakening ridge along the east Queensland coast. A weakening surface trough also extended along the east coast, which shifted offshore bringing showers along the east Queensland coast.
  • The ridge contracted northwards on the 14th as a large high pressure system east of New Zealand moved further east, allowing a surface trough, cold front and upper trough to shift eastwards over southern Queensland, and started to shift off the southern Queensland coast late in the day. This brought instability and rainfall with its passage and heavy cloud coverage.
  • The surface trough cleared off the east Queensland coast early on the 15th, with the upper level trough clearing also during the morning. A new high pressure system over South Australia extended a ridge of high pressure across the state with dry and stable conditions
  • The high pressure system strengthened over South Australia on the 16th while slowly shifting eastwards and extended a developing ridge into the state and along the east Queensland coast. This extended onshore winds along the east coast, but with mostly stable conditions in the region
  • Showers developed later in the day on the 17th as onshore winds strengthened in response to a ridge across the state from a large high pressure system developing further over south-eastern Australia
  • The large high pressure system moved into the western Tasman Sea on the 18th and started to decay and continued to extend a firm ridge along the east Queensland coast. Showers continued along the east Queensland coast in the moist onshore flow.
  • On the 19th and 20th a high pressure system in the Tasman Sea continued to extend a weakening ridge over the state with the moist onshore winds easing in response, with coastal shower activity persisting.
  • On the 21st a complex low pressure system moving over south-eastern Australia extended a trough and cold front that shifted eastwards reaching the east Queensland coast late in the day. This brought some instability with its passage.
  • The cold front and trough cleared off the east Queensland coast early on the 22nd before shifting eastwards across the Tasman Sea, while a complex low pressure system remained near south-eastern Australia and in the Tasman Sea. This in combination with a high pressure system in the Great Australian Bight brought a dry and cool air mass over most of the state
  • On the 23rd a high pressure system in the Great Australian Bight drifted northwards into South Australia and extended a ridge of high pressure across eastern Queensland bringing a cool and dry air mass across the state, with a widespread cold morning in the south.
  • A cold and dry air mass remained over southern Queensland on the 24th and 25th as a high pressure system remains over southern Queensland and in the Tasman Sea that extended a ridge across the state.
  • The high pressure system moved into south-eastern Australia on the 26th and extended a continuing ridge across the state that brought a cool and dry air mass over most of the state.
  • On the 27th the high pressure system remained slow moving over south-eastern Australia and continued to extend a ridge across the state that brought a cool and dry air mass over much of the state. Winds started to tend onshore along the east Queensland coast with some showers along the exposed southern Queensland coast.
  • On the 28th the high pressure system extended a ridge of high pressure along the east Queensland coast maintaining onshore flow along the east coast that extended further inland. Showers in this flow increased along the coast, including the south Queensland coast near a coastal trough. The coastal trough decayed and shifted northwards later in the day.
  • The high pressure system started to move into the Tasman Sea on the 29th whilst continuing to extend a ridge across the state. This extended onshore winds along the east Queensland coast with showers in this flow and showers were mostly north of the southern Queensland coast.
  • The ridge over the state remained on the 30th but eased further south with the high pressure system in the Tasman Sea, with settled conditions in the region.

  • On the 1st a high-pressure system moved offshore into the Tasman Sea and extended a ridge northwards and onshore wind flow along the east Queensland coast
  • The ridge along the east Queensland coast remained in place on the 2nd as the high pressure system remained in the Tasman Sea
  • On the 3rd the ridge decayed as a high pressure system remained over the Tasman Sea. A surface trough and cloud band shifted eastwards reaching the east Queensland late in the day.
  • Early on the 4th a surface trough shifted eastwards off the east Queensland coast, allowing a high pressure system in the Great Australian Bight to extend a strengthening ridge over the state. This extended a cool and dry air mass across the state.
  • The high pressure system remained in the Great Australian Bight on the 5th and 6th and continued to extend a strengthening ridge and a cool dry air mass across the state.
  • On the 7th the high pressure moved to near Tasmania extended a ridge over the state and continued to extend a cool and dry air mass over most of the state.
  • The high pressure system moved over south-eastern Australia and into the Tasman Sea on the 8th and extended a ridge along the east Queensland coast and moist onshore wind flow along the east Queensland coast.
  • A large high pressure system on the 9th and 10th drifted further eastwards in the Tasman Sea, with an associated ridge starting to weaken along the east Queensland coast. The moist onshore flow however continued to extend along the east Queensland coast
  • On the 11th the high pressure system shifted further eastwards with the associated ridge along the east Queensland coast weakening as a consequence. A surface trough shifted eastwards into central districts of the state and extended warm air into east Queensland
  • A surface trough and cold front shifted eastwards on the 12th over central and eastern parts of the state clearing the southern Queensland coast in the evening. An upper level trough shifted eastwards over the inland of the state. The proceeding high pressure system and ridge shifted further offshore.
  • On the 13th a high pressure system near Tasmania extended a strengthening ridge across the state in the wake of the cold front and surface trough that cleared off the coast. The ridge combined with a deepening low pressure system off the New South Wales coast moving into the Tasman Sea to extend a dry west to south-westerly flow over much of the state. An upper level trough shifted eastwards through the region.
  • On the 14th a high pressure system near Tasmania maintained a ridge across the state and combined with a deepening low pressure system slowing eastwards over the Tasman Sea to extend dry and cool west to south-westerly wind flow over southern Queensland.
  • A high pressure system to the south of Tasmania on the 15th to 17th maintained a ridge through central Australia and across to the east Queensland coast. This combined with a deep low over the northern Tasman Sea to maintain a cooler and drier air mass over most of the state.
  • On the 18th a high pressure system over the south Tasman Sea maintained a weak ridge along the east Queensland coast extending a dry and stable air mass across the state.
  • A weak high pressure system on the 19th over southern Queensland extends a weak ridge over the north, light wind flow over the south before a new high pressure system over southern Australia started to extend a new ridge over southern Queensland. This is maintaining a relatively dry air mass and settled conditions over most of the state.
  • On the 20th a high pressure system in the Great Australian Bight extended a strengthening ridge across the south. A weak south-westerly wind change moved through the southern Queensland coast as a trough moved off the New South Wales coast. The ridge maintained a stable and dry air mass across the state.
  • The high pressure system continued to build over the Great Australian Bight on the 21st continued extending a strengthening ridge over the state. A strong upper level trough moved eastwards over central Australia, moving into western Queensland late in the day, which extended a band of high cloud over much of the state
  • On the 22nd the high pressure system shifted slowly eastwards over the Great Australian Bight and continued to extend a ridge over the south of the state. A pronounced upper level trough shifted east wards into central parts of the state. This extended a cloud band over eastern parts of the state but remained outside of the region.
  • On the 23rd the high pressure system over south-eastern Australia shifted slowly moved eastwards and extended a ridge across the south of the state. A weakening upper trough shifted eastwards into the region later in the day with resulting rainfall from the instability.
  • The ridge over the south on the 24th relaxed as a high pressure system shifted eastwards. A deepening coastal trough and a weak low pressure system started to develop off the southern Queensland coast bringing further unstable conditions.
  • On the 25th a high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea shifted eastwards while the ridge relaxes further over the southern half of the state. A coastal trough deepened along with a weak low moved southward along the southern Queensland coast reaching Sandy Cape late in the day. A surface trough and upper level trough shifted eastwards over the south also, with further rainfall occurring over the region.
  • The high pressure system over the south Tasman Sea on the 26th shifted further eastwards relaxing the ridge over the south of the state. A coastal trough and low pressure system continued to shift southwards along the southern Queensland coast in the morning before moving southwards and developed into a significant low pressure system off the central New South Wales coast. In the wake of the trough another trough and an upper level trough moved eastwards clearing the region in the evening with a strong high pressure system building over southern Australia extending a dry air mass in its wake.
  • On the 27th a deep low pressure system shifted southwards along the southern Queensland coast. A high pressure system in the Great Australian Bight extended strengthening ridge into the state. The relative dry west- south-westerly flow between these systems lead to settled conditions.
  • The deep low pressure system on the 28th slowly moving eastwards off the southern New South Wales coast and started to weaken, whilst the high pressure system shifted northwards into South Australia and extended a ridge into the state. A dry and stable air mass continued to remain in place.
  • On the 29th and 30th the high pressure system remained over South Australia and continued to direct a dry and stable air mass into the region
  • The high pressure system moved into south-eastern Australia and extended a ridge over the state with a dry and stable air mass remaining in place.

  • On the 20th the trough contracted into northern and central parts of the state. Dry west to south-westerly flow over the south following the passage of the trough.
  • On the 21st a high pressure system south of Western Australia and over central Australia extended a ridge over the state with stable conditions. A weak trough shifted eastwards over the state. These combined with a complex low pressure system over south-eastern Australia to extend dry westerly flow over southern and central parts of the state
  • A high pressure system moved east into the Great Australian Bight on the 22nd and extended a strengthening ridge over the state.

  • The high pressure system moved into South Australia on the 23rd and extended a strengthening ridge of the east Queensland coast. This ridge combined with a complex low pressure system shifting eastwards over the Tasman Sea to direct a dry south-westerly flow over the state with cool conditions over southern and central parts of the state.
  • The ridge continued to remain in place on the 24th and 25th with a resulting stable air mass as a high pressure system remained in place over southern Australia on the 24th and moved into south-eastern Australia on the 25th
  • A large high pressure system shifted eastwards over inland New South Wales on the 26th and extended a firm ridge along the east Queensland coast. Stable conditions throughout except for the odd shower along the southern Queensland coastline.
  • On the 27th the high pressure system moved east and into the Tasman Sea as another high pressure system moved into the Great Australian Bight. This maintained a firm ridge along the Queensland east coast with settled conditions in the region

Notes:

Based on Bureau of Meteorology Climate summaries (Copyright) of which some data was obtained from. From September 2017 the Bureau of Meteorology Climate summaries were expanded to provide data from official stations in and near the Greater Brisbane “Greater capital city Statistical Area” (GCCSA).


Data Copyright Ferny Grove Weather 2019, Produced 11/3/21. Data Checking has been carried out but errors may still be present and therefore there is no assurance of correctness. Corrections may be made at a later data if errors or deficiencies are found and/or improvements in data handling techniques are made, though data with major improvements may not be updated in this summary. Data measured with professional moderate accuracy equipment. This replaced non professional equipment of low accuracy with differences in the measured data. The new equipment measures the daily average wind speed and wind run about 40 % higher. Daily rainfall and grass minimum temperature is measured using non-professional equipment of moderate accuracy.


Site Commencement data is April 15 2009 except for daily rainfall which commenced on January 1 1987. Not all variables have been measured over the entire station record. Most variables are measured over a 24 hour period ending in the evening and over a 24 hour period from midnight effective October 5 2018. Maximum temperatures are measured over the 24 hours from 9 am on the day of measurement. Minimum temperatures are measured over the 24 hours to 9 am of the day of measurement. Rainfall is measured over 24 hours to 9am and recorded on that day. This is the same as the official time standard. Some rainfall measurements are not made at 9am and is adjusted based on the automatic record. Minimum Grass Temperature is measured over an approx. 12 hour period ending in the early morning. MSL refers to Mean Sea Level, which is the standard meteorological method of measuring air pressure reduced to sea level based on both elevation and temperature. Grass Minimum Depression is the difference of the grass minimum temperature from the air temperatures and is a positive value when the grass temperature is below the air temperature.


Up until March 9 2019 automatic records as Dew Point, Average Wind Speed, Dominant Wind Direction, Wind Run, Rain Rate and Hourly Rain are measured over a 24 hour period starting at midnight and recorded for that day. This started on the 6 October 2011. The automatic record is used for some data and also may be used if data is not available/ not suitable. From March 9 2019 the automatic record became the official record instead, simplifying this process. Until replaced on 5 October 2018 the temperature and humidity sensor is under exposed so minimum temperature and maximum humidity are incorrect and low accuracy rain gauge is used which are not used as the site’s official record. This data limitation does not apply to other measurements of temperatures, air pressure and humidity, wind gust, daily and monthly rainfall and rain days elsewhere in this summary which are recorded separately and form the official record for this site. The replacement equipment is sited in more exposed locations and therefore the limitations don’t apply, though the automatic daily rainfall doesn’t form the official data for the site.


Long term averages are based on all available long period past measurements from October 2019 whilst for non automatic rainfall is based on 1987 to 2017 average from the station record, while. Prior to this the long term average for Temperature, Relative Humidity and Air pressure is based on 2009 to 2015 average from the station record and wind speed is based on the 2010 to 2018 average from station record. Wind Run is 2011 to 2018 and Rain Rate and High Hourly Rain is 2011 to 2017.


The Fraction of monthly average expresses how much has fallen in respect to the long term average listed as a percentage. The decile ranking compares the rainfall total to the historical record for the site where the record is divided into 10 equal groups. Decile 1 is the lowest 10% of the record (10th percentile) and Decile 10 (90th percentile) is the highest 10% of the record. Decile 1 is considered “very low”, decile 2 and 3 “low”, decile 4 to 7 “average”, decile 8 and 9 “high” and decile 10 “very high”.
