A few quick ones from me of a reasonably strong storm which moved directly over the Mount Bryan township, they had 67mm to 9am, apparently most of which fell in about 40 minutes. Was some amazing lightning dropping out of this, the high bases meant the bolts were enormous. I core punched this cell and had 10 or so sub 1km bolts, awesome stuff.

As the new RFBs developed to the north very heavy downbursts hit the ranges.


A potent microburst.


A large RFB is about to give way right over the town of Mount Bryan. The rainshafts had incredible details to them.


I'll have some more up eventually.

Geez, great pics there Markus and TH! Re photobucket, they used to be usable and the thing is I am used to the format, but nowadays, the ad spam is out of control and nothing but a grubby attempt to reach into our pockets for their "premium" product. The ad infestation in every form of media these days is out of control. Sometimes on my phone I'll look up a website and suddenly it redirects to ads that vibrate the phone that I cant get out of and have to close the browser. A deadly strain of AIDS on the bastard cretins that do this.

Adelaide's temps are making me smile atm, 34.0C at Kent Town at 10:20pm grin Temps gone up here aswell, 30.9C on an outdoor temp sensor (not at home atm).

Courtesy to what i was saying yesterday about Kalangadoo going for 40 degrees with a possibility of cracking that mark has kinda come back to bite me in the rear as tomorrows temp is 1 degree hotter than above mentioned forecast temp

Nonetheless tomorrow arvo looks very promising in terms of storm potential given the current muggy weather outside and adding into the mix tomorrows extreme heat and windy conditions are definitely a perfect combination for a nasty storm

WOW, overnight minimum was supposed to be 28 instead it's
over 32, that's a record for me, previous best was 31
degrees at naracoorte at 5:30 in the morning on jan 2nd in
the early nineties. i video'd the thermometer because that
was the day me and some mates were going to goondiwindi for
a week pig shooting. it was hot though, we stopped at parks
for a break and lunch and it was over 40, stepping out of
the air conditioned sahara was like stepping into an oven.
i think it was '92 but not sure, i do remember there was a
minivan with 8 asian people in it going to cairns for a
holiday for a week parked behind us and they had no air
conditioning poor buggers and i also remember we had to
tell them they were not going to get there because there
was major flooding between i think brisbane-rockhampton
and no one was going anywhere up there for a few days
at least. it was all over the news but these people never
saw it. maybe someone can remember which year that was.

Thanks for sharing your pics everyone. Some lovely stuff there. I ended up doing a loop to Jamestown, Whyte Yarcowie, Peterborough and back home though I never intended going that far. Always seemed to be playing catch up. I was on Mt Lock north of Jamestown at sundown when the 'Yunta' storms Tim mentioned coloured up. There was another cell off to my right in the distance I guessed was around Clare or thereabouts. Heres a funny thing TH. I think I remember seeing your 'storm chasing WTF picture of the week' smile

Keep cool everyone!

winds have been going here all night and no letup this
morning should ease a bit and later then swing and pick
up behind the trough ,the change will be weak with
minimal rain if any at all, hopefully any potential storms
will be surpressed, it'll be bad if any fires start.

For this situation, I actually agree with you on that. Either that or they are HP and rain on everything they touch.

31.4C overnight low for Adelaide, and it looks like it won't fall victim to the 9am reset. Top stuff cheers

My overnight low was 28.2C, currently on 37.6C.

OCF has lows up to 34C in Oodnadatta during the coming week shocked ACCESS has 850 temps at 30C or even a little more over NE SA from mid-late next week onwards. Basically an epic plume of heat over NE SA/ SW QLD, NW NSW for days on end. Can't wait.

Well it was definitely a marrow boiling day to say the least unfortunately to consistent cloud cover the temp only managed to reach 39 but still a bloody hot day nonetheless and pretty muggy outside and hovering around 38.3 outside according to my wireless wx station with a relative humidity of 12 %

Now just awaiting on these storms to happen hopefully even if they are high base lighting storms i will still be happy

It did crack 40 here in Gulfview Heights. 40.6 C at 12:30 PM.

Not long after that wind swung around to W/SW and temp came down a little. Been around the 38C mark all afternoon.

the books, you sure are a trendsetter RS, keep up the
good work.

Looks to be some interesting stuff happening this evening. What chance of a flash around the Adelaide area?

It's all just messy rain areas. Not lightning active at all.

Well once again a huge monumental big time fizzer last night after we were forecast to have scattered lightning and a little bit of rain overnight it was uncomfortable for the whole night until early this morning when the SW winds cooled temps down to more comfortable level

Hoping we don't have to wait too longer for another burst of marrow boiling heat again with the promise of some actual storm activity not a messy setup that doesn't deliver

The extreme heat and storms of the early-mid 90's when i was a kid and even in the early 000's after i finished high school would put our current summer weather to shame
