Edit: and stopped.

I'll be happy with a few anvil crawlers and 5mm would be nice as well, although I wont be ruling out a bit of overhead development just yet!!

My son visiting from Brisbane was looking at the sydney radar - "gee, in queensland the storms move around a bit".
Bright sunlight here, dark clouds all around.

I take it you are on the western side of Old Northern Rd?
Great view of the mountains from there.
Still nothing too loud here, but the radar is filling in and there's some development on the northern beaches so still, something is possible.
Such a spectacular looking sky this evening.

Actually, just got something a bit louder.
I love nights like tonight.

Sounding like this could be a BoM fail 'mainly in the west'

Getting some decent rain here from the storms, not often we do.
Temp dropped from 34C down to 19C in a couple of hours.
Certainly some thunder and lightening still around, nice for a change as it often bypasses Maitland.

Getting larger drops of Rain here, and loud rumbles of Thunder.
At least the Storm dropped into the Basin , was looking like it was just going to tease us for a while.

Storms seem to be on the move, entering Sydney's West. Thunderstorm warning now includes Sydney West of about Blacktown.

A few drops of rain in Chatswood. Thought I heard distant thunder (Kuringai Chase Cell?)

* * *

Very hot in Sydney's West during Christmas Week, 41 in Penrith on Thursday.

There is just the odd distant rumble here and there atm, but some nice steady rain. It's beautiful to hear on the roof after quite a sultry day.
Shame I watered the vegies at 4 pm thinking we wouldn't get anything.

Homeboy - lol.
It'll take a bit of time for me to get used to you being in Glenorie and not Quakers Hill.
Glenorie is a storm magnet so looking forward to your juicier updates. It's amazing how often they get storms and we don't. 5 K's north of Glenorie is even better!!

And lol at BOM.
Still no forecast update. Despite the afternoon 4.26 pm being completely wrong.
I'm guessing by 7.30 or 8.00 pm there might be something different after they have come back from their coffee break and checked the radar.

Steady light rain, enough for passers by to get out their umbrellas. And a single, loud crack of thunder. Now as I type a flash followed by another crack and roll a second later.

Enough to add to my storm spreadsheet. Number 11 for the season.

The forecast had to change already, the people in Terrey Hills wont be happy that the forecast was 'slight chance of shower', they're probably getting flooded by now.

Been rumbling and a few flashes here for an hour. A bit of rain. Nice for the garden and an early Xmas present! the radar looks weird with the showers/storms pulsing rather than moving in a definitive direction.

There is thunder and lightning in the east of the metro.
Surely they will update soon?

Heavy rain now in Chatswood, with occasional but infrequent lightning and thunder.

EDIT: you're right Muggy, those storms arejudt plodding anout like browns cows, griwing as they go (like a fungus? Or The Blob?).
