Rare Brisbane conditions

Had to get a screen grab of this tonight...

It's amazing how the jet stream really influences guiding.

I think it's supposed to be the other way round - slower winds help. From what I've seen the jetstream seems to be always a lot faster in this area and being as "low" as it is on the pic above is unusual.

So are you saying you rarely get in the blues and yellow is good for up there? If that's the case I'll never complain again about the seeing in Sydney.
