Graeme Ball - Been watching the temperatures in your area and they are impossible to think about doing much of anything in - especially playing tennis. I thought going through with the tennis matches in 100+ heat was about as nuts as if I'd decided to go out and cavort about in our -20, -30 wind chill temperatures. Extremes in either direction are times to stay in, stay put, and stay smart. Or at least it is to me. You have some wicked heat going there!

G'day all

I thought you might be interested in a report I've uploaded to my website about last week's heatwave in Victoria and the temperature records it created at my location.

The report is at

After another day in Victoria where temperatures across most of the state exceeded 40°C, it is timely to reflect on Australia's highest recorded temperatures.

Hi Ernest, thanks for the update. Was able to talk with my mother in Wacol and she is OK. Just some branches down. Poor Brisbane getting hit again.

Hi Hans How are things in the US.  The weather as you know has involved several super storm cells which are still continuing.  Brisbane and it's suburbs are fairing the worst. Reports of damage at Kelvin Grove in the first cell which hit yesterday (Saturday) morning. The local market was ripped apart all stalls were wrecked.  They also recorded the highest rain fall of 124mm to 9am. Wivenhoe Dam received 66mm to 9am then a further 12mm to 1pm today.

We have fairly well at Jimboomba, the major cells keep bypassing us.  We had 26mm of rain until 9am. We had one scare last night with a lightening strike close to the house. Inspected in daylight no damage done.  We are continuing with the thunder and short heavy showers.  There has been further storm warning for today possibly into the night.  We at Jimboomba hope that any further storm continue to pass us by.  Sorry I could not give you any dramatic news from here.

Hi Ernest, what's the latest with the Brisbane storms?  Heard three storms colliding. How wide was the path and where did it go? thanks

VERY heavy rainstorm here at Prestons (near Sydney) last evening. Our rain rate was a record at 411.4 mm/hr at 4:56 PM. The total rain in the hour was only 16.4mm, but during the downpour we could hardly see our neighbour's house about 20m away.

Rain Is On The Way For Mid Michigan

Radar is showing storms knocking on our door but so far this morning, it has been partly cloudy, hot and dry.  I have been procrastinating in watering my flowers, so I hope that it doesn't fizzle out before it gets to us.  One Detroit TV station said that we could see rain amounts over an inch today, and although we don't…See More
