Showers over the racetracks this morning and again this evening.

I'd speculate we're looking at SLOW for Doomben tomorra.

Scattered showers over Brisbane from late afternoon.  So far would have been very little on the tracks, but the forecast's not good for tomorrow and into Saturday.

Looks like another day for the wet-track-wunners.

Plenty of cloud around, and occasional showers on the coast.

Hopefully Doomben gets through with no rain, and we'll be on a track close to GOOD.

Raining like hell here in Logan at the moment and they say there is a fair chance of heavy rain later in the week.

My lawn needs mowing but I'm not doing it in this

Heavy showers at EF this morning, grats.  Nice day since then.  I'd think DEAD would be where we are right now - and often I wish I was. :unsu

Pretty good day in Brisbane town.  Lots of cloud still hanging around.  Might be an occasional shower, but EF should be near GOOD.

Weather has closed in somewhat over the Coast around Brisbane.

We might be racing on something soft at the Farm, Saturday. :unsu

Plenty of rain over the Brisbane tracks overnight.  Probably up to 50 mm with more to come.

Expect a SLOW track at best tomorrow, I'd say.

Looking pretty gloomy over Brisbane.  I reckon those cricket fans patiently waiting at the Gabba should start planning for a night at the casino or elsewhere.

Eagle Farm tomorrow no seems likely to be HEAVY.  I guess there's always a chance they'll switch to the Cushion.

Gold Coast is OFF.

Overcast skies and light rain over Brisbane this morning.

Eagle Farm should get through on a HEAVY track if conditions stay the way they are.

It could get worse before it gets better though - sounds like the Gold Coast will nearly be under water by this afternoon.

Brisbane Forecast
Issued at 5:15 am EST on Saturday 14 February 2009

Warning Summary
A severe weather warning is current.

Forecast for Saturday
Rain periods, easing during the evening. Possible moderate to locally heavy
falls. Fresh SE to NE winds, shifting NW during the afternoon and easing.


----------------------------

TOP PRIORITY FOR IMMEDIATE BROADCAST
SEVERE WEATHER WARNING
for Flash Flooding, Dangerous Surf and Damaging Winds.
For people in the Southeast Coast, Wide Bay & Burnett and the eastern Darling
Downs & Granite Belt districts.
Issued at 5:00 am on Saturday 14 February 2009

Synoptic Situation: A low pressure system off the Capricornia coast is expected
to move southwards adjacent to the coast while deepening, and be near the
southern border tonight. The combination of this low and a large high east of
Tasmania is producing strong to gale force winds and dangerous surf along the
southern Queensland coast. Locally heavy rainfall is possible as the low moves
southwards and a vigorous upper trough approaches from the west.       

Locally heavy rainfall may redevelop about coastal areas from Fraser Island to
the southern border during this morning before easing late afternoon and
evening. This rainfall may produce flash flooding and stream rises.

Dangerous surf is expected about the exposed beaches from Fraser Island to the
Gold Coast.

Damaging wind gusts of up to 90 km/h are expected about the exposed coastline
between Fraser Island and the Gold Coast, as well as the hilltops and ridges
inland into the eastern Darling Downs & Granite Belt district. These winds are
likely to contract south and gradually ease later in the day and tonight.

Yeah, the outlook is pretty bleak on both Coasts. >:(

Won't be the track condition that threatens EF.  It'll be poor visibility if rain continues during the meeting.
