Black is the colour of choice at the moment on the radar around Kanangra Walls and Robertson.Not only that they look to be stationary.

Explosive towers towards my far south. Probably that dark core near Hill Top.


Absolute Anvil fest here, I'd be happy with anvil rain. The lawns are starting to brown up again and with this weeks forecast it doesn't look good.

Today is so frustrating watching all these storms around Sydney - and decent ones too, knowing full well we'll probably get jack [censored].

To get a storm today it looks like you'll need to have one develop right over you. Or you could move to get under it and hope it lasts.

A cell is now developing North of Blackheath and, like the others, apparently not moving.

Nothing in the orange/bathurst area either, we are the hole in the donut of storms. It has been cloudy all day which I think is stopping convection from getting going. Hopefully something will develop later, I would hate to miss out with all this storm action around the place.

Thought there was a glitch on the Syd radar, but it would appear to be raining over Bondi, the beach cams confirm it - an onshore shower steered by the 'backwards' shear

Yep.
Check out the current NSW sat pic with lightning tracker on.
Unbelievable, yet not even a distant rumble here.

As I said.........quite frustrating.

The LI's and CAPE are so good for this afternoon on the coast but no shear has completely offset that potential.

The western sky was rumbling for a couple of hours and it was very dark. Now it's cloudy and windless and we are drowned by the anvil cloud from decaying storms to the west.

Getting darker here, can sort of make out some structure under this anvil junk.
Anyway I've cracked a beer, so storms have to come to me.

Small towers trying to get going just to my immediate north and east. Maybe there's some hope yet.

The towers I was seeing may have been the rogue shower off bondi.

Nice Poida.

Gee there would some great rainfall rates under that Bilpin storm.

Meanwhile I can hear distant thunder from the storms around Dungog, there slowly creeping my way!!

Yes, great photos Poida!!

I too Eddy have heard a few distant rumbles although everything isn't moving much. I don't expect too much tonight, maybe a little light rain at best if any of those decaying storms move a little east
