You're not wrong about the slow start Steve O. We haven't had a thunderstorm since april, and the last one that delivered above 10mm happened in January.
I'm liking the radar atm though. Not much, but tomorrow should be slightly more unstable so tomorrow may have a surprise in store for us. There again it might not.

Nice to see a few flecks on radar tonight. Even a brief, tiny red core up near Gayndah.

We had naff all storms at this time last year, but after a nice TS on October the 14th, we got hammmered almost every week until January, so defiantly lots of time left for a great storm season. Not expecting this year to be like the previous which was the most active storm season in the 11 years I've lived here but hopefully there should be a few bangers here and there.

The onshore flow is shallow. From about 1.4-1.5kms above sea level and higher, the winds are from the NW. So any cloud that starts to get a little bit of height on it will begin to move from the NW and in a SE direction.
You can see it on the weather cams and on the forecast sounding for Brisbane at 1pm

Thanks for the response, yeah it looked a tad tricky yesterday which confused me,the sounding explained it well. Normally the onshore flow is deep up this part of the world, where its only when you get to the 500 height the winds start being a westerly flow.

Just heard thunder from that one mick 87. Looks good on the radar, cells to the south of Brisbane seem to be losing intensity.

A cell has developed around the Northern suburbs of Brisbane, Boondall, Bracken Ridge, Strathpine etc. Lightning and thunder with WZ Storm Tracker lighting up a little. Nothing over the top but just pleasant to hear and watch the cell build. Quiet dark outside just to the West of us. Occasional wind gusts but not too strong.

There's also been some reports of small hail.

1st photo below is one I took looking to the NW while going home from the city this afternoon.
2nd photo is one I took from my area just before:

That cell came out of nowhere over highvale, took a long time to move at all but gave rain to the areas I was in (Strathpine, Albany Creek, Lawnton). Would have taken a photo but was on the road, saw a couple lightning strikes though.

Had 1mm at home in Strathpine.

5.8mm in the 24 hours to 9am from a sharp shower last night. A bit of distant thunder late last night and early this morning from storms offshore.

It was a fine and mild morning here, but became cool around midday with frequent showers since then (19.0mm here since 9am). Several flashes of lightning have been picked up on the tracker in the vicinity of Crescent Head this afternoon/evening (between here and Port Mac).

Nice to see the start of some storm activity, hanging to get out there with the cameras. Just a quick time lapse of Tuesday's morning cloud over Mt Glennie & Mt Lindesay. Cheers Joe
