Well today was definitely a preview of what summer has in-store for us 2016/2017 needless to say it was pretty warm this morning when i emerged from Bordertown pub after spending the night there doing security work and sleeping upstairs after my shift had finished

Venturing back to Kalangadoo i could have sworn the temperature spiked big time as my weather station read out 32.5 degrees around 3:30-4:00pm although on hooking up the station to my laptop using easy weather it said something entirely different so i am hoping that was just because of it having no memory left

At the moment the RH outside is sitting at 83% with no breath of wind whatsoever were meant to be getting a thunderstorm at some stage tonight as well

Trough going through tilts west with height so despite sfc southerlies from late morning, unstable aloft still. Very steep lapse rates with moisture between 13-18,000ft so will see castellanus sitting there this morning before sfc based stuff gradually convects up over usual spots and mid level/sfc stuff all joins....general messy band of showers and isolated thunderstorms coming down from NW, but bigger sfc based ones taking off chiefly N EP/Mid North/Upper NE Ranges/Riverland most likely and sliding down there all night. Nothing flash but something to look at.

TS cool

Getting lots of rain curtains and fibrous anvils. Tons of static on AM radio. Lots of action heading my way looking at the radar. 39.1C on the PWS and there is beer in the fridge. Life as it should be.

Had some flashes and a couple showers around 10pm last night, with the temp rising to 31C at the time! Overnight low was 26C. Again, life as it should be grin

Yeah forget the Trough, we'll see nothing from that lol, that has already gone through and well to our East now.

Adelaide's best chance will be a surface based storm preceding the main front which comes through later today. Storms already firing on that line which is from Ceduna to Pt Lincoln.

Glad to see your life is in order Galaxyman, the river rising faster each day doesn't concern you?

Nice heavy shower with massive drops just before and plenty of rumbles. Nice dark bases and rain curtains all 'round.

Fantastic day. 26.0/39.9C on my PWS and 23.3/41.9C at the airport. Surprised to see the temp spike so high at the BOM station when by that time it was thoroughly cloudy with showers in every direction. Had a short, heavy downpour at around 2pm which resulted a temp/DP reading of 39/20 on my PWS at one stage. Nice followup to the epic events of November 11.

Lots of thunder all afternoon. Some of the stuff to the NW currently sparking on the tracker, maybe I might get a few flashes tonight wink

I can't believe with all that activity yesterday I failed to even hear one rumble or witness any lightning. I ventured out and sat on a lonely hill in Jamestown for an hour or so but I'd left my run too late and my area was soon deleted from the STW list. If I'd been an hour earlier I would have captured a couple of impressive looking cells building to my east but this coincided with me picking grandson up from school. Alas its all in the timing frown
Anyway today is another day ....

showers.... possibly quite chunky... slight chance a rumble - but storms will be more Mid North/Riverland and even more so Flinders Ranges.

Nick - you are well placed today.... My target would be Orooroo area...

Hope you're right Teck. I'm on school duties again so later in the day might suit. Still waiting for the sun to show itself. Really need some heat happening!!

Anyone from here responsible for this? -

This lightning detecting stuff is quite interesting.
The real time map they have is getting better - Real Time Lightning Map

I love how you can see the sound wave from the thunder radiate outwards from each live strike. Tested it out when we had that last lot of storms and it was pretty accurate.

Still misses quite a few strikes compared to the WZ lightning data.

The Real Time Lightning Map is awesome - I've been thinking to put in the gear to participate. I've got a couple of POE boxes on the roof already doing stuff :-)

I luv the lines that show which stations have detected the spark.

As to misses compared to WZ - I haven't compared but they do display info differently, the way things fade...
