Was SYD closed this afternoon? There are significant inbound delays on pretty much all flights, and both QF452 and QF454 diverted to CBR. There was a storm band that came through late this afternoon with 90km/h wind gusts predicted. I don't think it was as bad as that but perhaps it was responsible.
