Some nice looking storms firing up on the escarpment to my south. This kind of setup with storms there and a southerly moving up the coast has resulted in a storm here more often than not.

Looks like it collapsed down Kiama way ... a bit building over the Royal National Park. Storm day for sure. A bit to the east of the Northern Road as well.

No thunder or lightning from these Shire cells at the moment. It will be an interesting afternoon for the western suburbs I think, as this SE change struggles inland.

Just started raining here in the last 10 minutes. The rain rate is now picking up Just now there was a loud peal of thunder, the first I've heard since early May. There goes another peal. Radar shows rapidly developing cells around Sydeny.

Like everyone else, it too was my first storm of the season. It was nothing special structure wise although it did try to form a weak gust front at times. Lightning was generally confined to the rain core and it was some what infrequent as well. I had to cut my chase around town short as a pelican shat on my car and pelican sh1t will eat through paint quicker than what paint removal can do!!
Couple of pics.

Average day, although most of it spent down on the Central Coast today, not much difference.
A small amount of sporadic rain coming back this arvo, but only patchy and not much in it.

I didn't see any lightning or hear thunder yesterday, although it would've been quite close to happening. We did however, get a few bursts of heavy rain that continued through the afternoon before clearing at sunset. The last storm we got here was on 1st February.

Good pictures Eddy.

There was too much cloud about here to get any good view of structure.

That was a fairly significant cool change that came through yesterday afternoon, dropping the temperature by about 5 degrees, for example for OH, from 22 at 1:00PM to 17 at 3:30PM after the change had passed (16 during the storm). It was not shown in the chart nor mentioned in the forecast that I can recall (other than 'possibility of a storm').

P.S. I have restarted my Storm spreadsheet. The last entry was for a storm at 6:00AM on May 1. The one before that was for a lightshow from storms out to sea on March 28. It's been a while.

Looks that Sydney will escape a 30C September day again this year. Interestingly, on average up until 1999 a 30C+ day occurred only once every 3 years. Since the turn of this century there has been a step increase in this freqency to more than one each year, suggesting a climate shift. Whether the shift is permanent remains to be seen. Nonetheless this year September is set to be amongst the equal 15th warmest in terms of maxima.

After isolated storm cells dropped little more than a couple of mms here yesterday it will be an interesting week weatherwise. More rain on Thursday, with snow thrown into the mix on Friday. Then warmish weather on Sunday before another band of rain early next week.
