Queensland Solar Eclipse Weather Forecast 2012

Cloud over the North Tropical Coast of Queensland Australia

 

Cloud sometimes changes slowly and is farly predictable with a stable pattern. Howevr it can also be highly unpredictable and can change rapidly; it is all due to intricate and complex interactions of temperature, moisture, air uplifts, and local geographicaly and topography conditions.

 

Cairns region during November and the south easterly trade winds In the Cairns region during November the south easterly trade winds which blow onshore are common in November and often form conditions of partial cloud over the Coral Sea and Pacific Ocean; the adjacent ranges are also affected by the same process.

 

It is unusual to have a clear sky in the morning, and it is more likely that some cloud will be prevalent. The eclipse occurs not long after sunrise and is therefore low in the sky making it all the more likely that the Sun will float in and out of cloud. The Australian Bureau of Meteorology statistics show that during the average November morning, cloud covers half of the sky.
