I got some pictures earlier of Mt Majura being absolutely hammered. And finally it's our turn. It was hard to know which bit of the sky to watch, from about 1pm on it's been thunder in every bit of the sky, cell bursts in different places (including over Mt Majura). Getting some rain finally, but the thunder just keeps on.

The sky looks amazing, drama in every direction.

Pretty cool. Watching that cell to my NE dropping CG's the last 5 minutes or so. Just doesn't want to inch closer.

Yeah, very clear indeed and a very interesting sky here; brilliant white/yellowish cumulonimbus clouds to the east, dark grey storm clouds to the west which are unfortunately backtracking themselves towards the SW (which pretty much NEVER happens)

The centre of the Hall cell is black but stationary. It did produce a daughter cell that moved in my direction then did a 90 S. Good to hear other reports.

The storm near Braidwood looks like it's going to be a monster, it seems to be sucking all the nearby storms into it.

Pretty sure I'm watching another base get organised just to the north of Gungahlin, its just popped up in the last radar frame on the other side of Hall in NSW.. hopefully it pushes up and creeps down

Sutton looks to be getting absolutely smacked by that cell out there.

Sutton and near the Majura Road/Federal Hwy intersection always seems to get hammered. I suppose with Sutton being a little elevated (definitely Wamboin) it attracts the stormies.

I Expect to see something pop up to the SW of me somewhere soon on radar, watching some boiling heads go up.

On that other one I was watching its definitely thickening up on radar.

Sutton cell now creeping toward and filling in with the Braidwood cell, that new one behind it is thickening up nicely too and now hearing rumbles.

Gonna be one big line going nowhere when its done. Impressive setup.

Expect some flash flooding if u get under one of these!

Can feel the cool outflow from the Sutton cell now, which is behind it. Some low scud forming up now getting sucked into the new cell at Hall. Hoping for a downpour!

It hasn't stopped thundering since 1pm, still roaring away outside. Got one heavy shower but can see them everywhere. very dark, maybe it's planning something really big for us.
This a couple of hours ago, looking SSE down my mountain range, towards Captains Flat.

All kinds of htings happening outside. To the NNW, is a giant fuzzy mass. Must be that Sutton thing. South looks similar. East is a huge roll of white cloud rolling over the Talleganda Ranges, against a wall of grey. Clouds boiling over Canberra too.

Edit: jeez it's volatile! New VERY loud thunder just to my SE, as-in over my fence. That Sutton cell on the radar is just sitting there, festering, if it moves as everything else is moving, downwards, it'll collect us here.

its weird, the cells dont seem to be moving anywhere, if anything, the sutton cell's core is creeping back north. I watched the new development go up on its northern side from here. Can see it clearly. Was a nice tail which has now filled in with a solid dark rain curtain.

That new hall cell is darting off South West yet its now a very small core.

I can see the giant fuzz of the sutton cell from here, hanging over Kowan. But the radar reckons it's splitting off new bits and heading away. Magenta core, holy crap. Meanwhile, I'm getting new, very loud thunder pretty-much directly overhead. Radar doesn't show anything much, a bit of green overhead (I'm under the "ea" in Queanbeyan on the radar map). Gusty cold wind coming from the SE, maybe that's discouraging the Sutton cell.
