Look at the Sydney radar now - the incredible shrinking storm.

Everyone have a great day tomorrow.

EDIT: interesting picture Eddy. The sky looked similar over Artarmon a little while before the storm arrived / developed overhead.

EDIT2: thanks for relating that experience Perfct Storm. It must have shaken everyone. Hope you're all OK.

Such a weird evening.
None, or not much rain forecast. Then, an hour and a half of really steady rain with plenty of flashes and rumbles and 12 mm's here.
It all came in from the north west. That's fair enough, but now it is contracting backwards from the east. WTF?

Yeah wow PS that would've been a bit scary.

Weird evening here as well. Completely calm and warm just before but suddenly a moderate and cool NWer has come up. Most of the windows in the house are open to let it in. It's going to be a long hot week without aircon working.

That breeze is so nice atm. It's come out of nowhere which makes it even better.

Thank you all for the kind words.

I've experienced flangs before but I've never felt such a rush of electricity go through me before like that during a storm. Quite the experience.

I would say it would have to do with the sheer. I was looking at the maps earlier this afternoon to see whether it would pick up and sheer seems to have veered in from the east. I was kind of hoping for some storms to come in from the east so the rain encroaching from the west had me even more off guard.

Though looks as though the easterly sheer has finally taken over.

Edit: looks like some weak cells going up over Roberson and north of heading west. Maybe there will be some more Xmas Eve surprises to come? smile

Givings better than receiving right Homer (so a sailor once told me)! Had 21mm at Glenorie, but im very keen to see what I picked up at Quakers Hill, have lived there for 14 years and have never cracked the 1000mm for the year (best 982.5mm), as of this morning was on 955.0mm ytd, ive told the missus im not moving til we reach the 'G', hopefully 15-20mms there and then I need a new years eve miracle to get me over the line! Thought I was home and hosed this year too when over 750mm in late june, guess I got complacent!.

Was on my way back to visit family in the Hunter last night and today, last night I got to experience the storm in Gunnedah, and it was a pretty big one (the radar wasn't lying). Torrential rain and constant lightning for a good 1-2 hours. Setting off from there today it was warm and humid and quite overcast so certainly had the feel of showers or storms developing. Leaving Singleton at approx 3.30pm this arvo there was a very dark section of cloud to the north east with a lot of lightning, and was moving south. This then combined with other showers and storm cells as it approached, and then became like a thundery rain mass, but with quite a lot of lightning and close strikes. And the rain was a real blessing I think with a dry week coming up.

Merry Christmas 😊

About 21C at Albion Park but oddly it's 24C here and that's with no breeze too.

Not much here but those storms did cause a few problems where they were sitting around not moving. Heard on the scanner that Lithgow had a flooding problem across a few streets, cops were torn between managing the holiday traffic and manning road blocks.

Muswellbrook was smashed.. over 100mm there leading to significant flooding. Tree damage as well, especially in western parts of town where I'd estimate gusts of 90-100km/h. Was also some small hail. Got these pics on the drive down to Sydney, Merry Christmas all! smile

Also, with the models.. I'd be banking on Sydney (Obs Hill and other suburbs), and some inland areas to have their hottest December on record after this spell of heat

Good stuff Ben.

The NE is in full swing early this morning, and some scud is also racing in with it.

Nice pics Ben, the Upper Hunter, and even Cessnock, does tend to get more fierce storms than around here.
Mind you we did get 35mm of rain til 9am, which was very good.
Hopefully we may get some more this evening.
Most rain this December has fallen over 3 days, although they have been significant and now close to the monthly average.
