Southeast Queensland October heat breaks a long standing record

17:33 EDT

Parts of southeast Queensland sweated through their hottest October day ever recorded.  A broad trough pushing into eastern parts of the sunny state has been drawing a hot airmass ahead of it, with a dry offshore wind circulation preventing the cooling effects of the seabreeze from kicking in this afternoon.   This led to temperatures creeping up well above average for this time of year. A new maximum October temperature record was set at Cape Moreton, with the mercury creeping up to 32.3°C just after 3pm, beating the previous October record of 31.5°C. This weather station has been keeping records for 110 years, since 1910.  Elsewhere in Southeast Queensland, it was the hottest October day in:  20 years at Bundaberg (34.5°C)  16 years at Sunshine Coast Ap (36.5°C), Tewantin (36.8°C) and Maryborough (35.5°C)  12 years at Brisbane Ap (33.2°C) and Redcliff (34.1°C)  8 years at Coolangatta Ap (33.4°C)  Satellite imagery showing temperatures in the 30s across southeast Queensland just before 4pm AEDT with dry westerly winds.

Colourful Skies

12:02 EDT

For many in Australia clear blue skies are a common sight, but why is it that we see it this colour, and why is it different during sunrise and sunset.  Earth's atmosphere contains air molecules and many types of particles, including ash, dust and ice crystals.
