Hi there Everyone,


We have now uploaded some photographs of the frosts South-East Queensland experience on the morning of the 12th of June 2009. The temp was actually still 0.0° when these photos were taken.


We received the lowest temperature of -0.4° which was the coldest morning of the year so far.

SEQ Floods 19-21 May 2009

Posted by Andy Barber on May 25, 2009 at 12:11 PM Comments comments (0)

We have added a new catagory in the Photography section for the extensive floods that effect South-East Queensland and North-East NSW between the 19th-21st of May 2009.


An upper trough and three surface lows dumped hundreds of millimetres of Rain onto the Sunshine, Gold and Tweed Coasts in Mid-May 2009. This led to major flooding of Slacks Creek peaking just of 6 metres. The persistant lows also produced flash flooding in the Gold Coast Hinterland, we also received 320mm where we are located.


Brisbanes dams also faired well with levels past 60 per cent capacity. Over this event we had photographs published in the Courier-Mail, Albert and Logan News with the Chardon's Bridge Road flood video aired on Channel 10.


Feel free to check out the Photographs in the new section as listed above.  

March 2009 Update

Hi there everyone!


Thanks for coming back and taking a look at South Brisbane Storms. There have also been updated additions to the photo galleries of the past two months occurances, which has been very infrequent.


January was a very quiet month thunderstorm wise, and the trend did carry into February. There were only a couple of oppurtunities to take photos with the limited thunderdays available.


Keep checking back in if you like too. We are still considering offering prints at A3 size (framed or unframed) if you are interested in purchasing any photos on this site (high resolution). We also are yet to provide pricing although a framed A3 sized photo would be in the order of $15.00 or $30.00 framed.


Once again thanks for stopping by and hope to add more photos and reports over the next few weeks.

Site Setup

Thanks for all of the positive feedback for this website from everyone!  

We are really suprised and the amount of interest others have when it comes to Thunderstorms. Perhaps this is curiousity of how they work (how I started out) and also thier unpredictable nature.  

We hope you check back soon for Storm Chase Reports and updated Photos and Videos. It sure is nice to have them all in one place. Within the next few months we should hopefully putting together some weather calenders and working out prints etc.

Again thanks for your support and see you soon
