The Weather Lady on ABC News 24 told us winds peaked at 161 millimetres per hour.

So it wasn't as bad as we thought?

Hilarious. Media people actually believe they are more intelligent than the general populace. Other way round.

Yes it could be that this ECL gets going again and does some stuff up this way. The wind has just picked up with rain.

In the snow thread they are.

Lovely eye on Low SE of Sydney. Wonder how long before Bom gets into the silly act of naming these kind of lows.

So nice to see a BOM MSLP map which concurs with the radar and doppler images. A very elegant series of lows off the east coast!

Well a little bit of excitement for you coasties!! smile

Brought out a few old names too. smile

Our rain etc was pretty damn tame but we had very close to zero temps last night during it and Home Boy I indeed saw plenty of sleet out my front door and even a few flakes. Pretty sure at some point when I was just watching the noise box it may well have been better.

However those to my east did infinitely better, what a great weather event for a lot of people. smile

Shame my home computer is buggered and I have no net there. Was busting to get involved last night.

It is absolutely nuts here atm ASF.
Wind is howling - thunder and lightning constant (and has been for hours now). Rain pelting down. Plenty of snow just 60 km's to the west. It's an incredible night!!!

Once in a decade type stuff.

Homer.


I can't imagine Homer! My Facebook newsfeed was choaked last night and this morning with photos and reports of the storm, ranging from lightning over the Sydney CBD (and Sydney Harbour) and snow in the Blue Mountains and Central Tablelands to dangerous flooding in the Sydney area! I can't imagine a storm like that here in Melbourne!! frown

Hope everyone's safe.

Edit: hard to believe that almost exactly one year ago, the Blue Mountains were ravaged by bushfires!! crazy

It was cyclonic here on the central coast for about 3 hours from about 1am to 4am. The rain was pelting the house sideways and pummelling the windows. Was rather ferocious... Scored 56mm in the gauge ,a rarity to score the same as Norah head.

A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains..."

Sun out. Still pretty windy but no rain for awhile

A peak gust of 102kmh at Norah at 4.15 is hardly cyclonic. Keep a sense of proportion for goodness sake

Hey Aussiestorm freak, not sure how long you've lived in Melb, but I grew up there, and although it wasn't caused by an ECL and there was no snow on the near by hills, i remember an EPIC storm that caused similar flash flooding and up to 2-3 lightning strikes a second over the Melb metro area. It put the new (at the time) Eastern Fwy underwater! They had swift water rescues on the Eastern. Most of the eastern / northern suburbs had 100mm+ in a few hours between 10pm-1am.

Dec 3, 2003 if my memory serves me correct. Happy to be corrected.

Do you remember? smile

Cat 1 equivalent actually. It was reasonably sustained too compared to a regular thunderstorm.

Wattamolla was approaching Cat 3 equivalent

Given a cat 1 cyclone produces winds of around 100 km/h (and in one area up to 161 km'h) I'd say the winds were cyclonic. Psst low pressure systems are cyclones by definition wether they be midlevel, extratropical, cold core polar, ECL's or otherwise. Keep a sense of logic for goodness sake wink

Had some good gusts during the night, mainly after the main rain band. Was hoping for about 50mm but managed a measly 18mm. Pretty used to it around here. The dams haven't spilled for a couple of years. Can rain 100's of mm down the road, and near nothing here. Keep my expectations low, but I should lower them even further. We used to get all the rain!!

Sounds like a great event further south. Some pretty intense stuff, but not that epic against my 2007 ECL benchmark....sure that might have a few disputes....But, I have always maintained Sydney radar overestimates. There was obviously some very heavy rain under red and black last night, but Newie was largely showing green and yellow....odd spot of orange and red. In 2007, Newie was showing dark red for hours on end. 350mm for the day in my gauge. Im waiting for another one of those!

Was great to see the forum alive regardless.
Hoping for a sting in the tail....anything over about 5mm would be a sting for us these days!
