There is an exquisite line of lightning travelling SE but I doubt it will have the energy to make it to the CBD as it will mysteriously disappear! It does look impressive on the radar!

Woke up in the middle of the night to a near strike close to the house.
No rain just a dry strike. Had some significant strong North easterly winds as the clouds were flying past this morning. When they finally slowed we had some lovely persistent moderate rain.

May have had around 15mm here so far.
However just looking at what is coming! There is a line of storms arriving from the North west from that wrap around low near the mallee combined with the wind change line
In fact that storm line up into qld is the s/west wind change line! The s/westerlies have made it all the way up there!

1km wind streams
http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/charts/v...it=Refresh+View

Not looking forward to this. Argh!
Has just emerged on the lightning tracker in n/westVIC !and sweeping toward the south east
http://www.weatherzone.com.au/satellite/vic

I will let you know when l see the storm line coming in the distance from the n/west. Reckon that will give us another dumping of about 20mm. Ha ha WATL was off the mark on this one last night for western VIC but BSCH GFS saw the storm potential in the west for the arvo!
Also . THe forecast was for a max of 16 deg C . Bendigo only made 13 deg c with the rain


I will take a snap in a minute of the storm line down the east coast

Have a look at this vigorous spring pattern
Excellent looonnng storm line
and outstanding cold front and cold airmass approaching s/west WA

Hey stormchasers and photographers. Is this a clear air line before this line of storms? Never seen this on the sat pic before?

We have some scud from the North east currently with low wind in Dunolly currently. Can't see the upper cloud atm

Here is the 1km sat pic showing the clear..er air before the storm line
You can see a pencil thin line of Thunder clouds possibly on the wind change line
The clearer air is approaching us now from the North west
can't see storm line yet ( Dunolly)
Cloud near Maldon/Castlemaine is darkening in the east

Great posts above Crikey, links really show what you are describing.

We've had no thunder or rain from this system until light spitting stuff managed to survive the trip over the ranges from the NW to provide Gippy with a sense of what most of the state is experiencing (1.5mm so far).

Great report here and from BOM of many 25-35(+)mm totals on the NW side of the divide in the central/E areas! smile

WOW at that fully massed arch of thunderstorms arcing from Mt Gambier up to Swan Hill!! I'm expecting some sad hail damage news in the morning.

Less rain in the NW of the state, hopefully there is a couple more mm up there as the eye of the low passes and some southerly showers may add a bit more in the gauges out there.

Very exciting for us Gippy folk with the possibility (not probability) of some decent wrap-around SE'ly rain in the next 24 hrs or so as the system picks up its skirts from the W border to morph into an ECL in the states E. We may get drenched, or sit under the eye. For us, 20-40mm over next 3 days would be fantastic. Flooding rain in this part of the country during the onset of the peak milking season would be less appreciated....

Heres the latest MSLP chart (to show how good this has been modeled from last week):

The uppers very stable and low clouds from NE/SE going to west can see heaps lighting in West. Easy for chasers to see clouds formation while moon out

We have an interesting experience atm. The storm line has split and not coming anymore and the rainbands are slowly rotating around us . I suspect we are within the centre of the low surface currently. The air is so still and we have thick fog with visibility as low as 100m.

Tomorrow looks interesting on the east coast tomorrow from your post petros.Lots of catch up rain by the looks of that map
The low centers near sth coast NSW
