Today in Brisbane the temperature is slightly below average for this time of year. Nevertheless, Brisbane boasts an exciting tech sector which keeps the city bustling almost constantly. No wonder then that Melbourne boasts the highest concentration of skyscrapers in Australia with a population of over one million inhabitants. On top of that, there is an array of bars and restaurants to enjoy for locals who want a taste of luxury. Enjoying Sydney’s attractions is best done with a cocktail in hand or, at the very least, a cold beer. The city also houses some of Australia’s prestigious medical research and teaching institutions – evidenced by the numerous high-tech hospitals sprouting up across town.

Climate and temperature data for Brisbane is based on the averages of temperature measurements from two weather stations close enough to contribute to our climate model. Each station’s data has been adjusted for elevation, relative change present in MERRA-2 satellite-era reanalysis, and International Standard Atmosphere; then calculated in a weighted average. The final travel score computed for Brisbane takes into account these values over one year as an annual average. Weather and water forecasts for Brisbane Airport are prepared using historical weather and water data.


Today, clouds were the star of the show as fluffy cotton-ball type clouds or cirrocumulus cloudlets dominated the skyline. Social media was abuzz with pictures of some of the more impressive formations, but one in particular stood out: ‘hole in the sky’ – which according to weather gurus was a first for Brisbane! This phenomenon occurs when ice crystals ‘cannibalize’ another cloud and start falling out; it was also one of largest at 150 metres across.

Another major update is that a tropical cyclone is expected to form within the next couple of days.
