One of the best shelfies I've seen for Adelaide in my life. Very impressive storm tho as well, in the top 5 for sure and would have to put this higher than December 7 2010, was close to Jan 7 2012 but more windier, rain almost the same tho but this one also had more lightning in it as well.

Max gust of 104 was recorded
27.2mm and a rain rate of 177.4

Expecting some more rain tonight so hopefully be nice to wake to another 10mm overnight.

Well that was interesting, spent the time down at Onkaparinga Rivermouth with TH and another friend, took its time to get going, few bolts firing off more W on bottom end of line before sky darkened and revealed a couple more further N and could make our guster developing. It had a LOT more meat and green to it back towards the city and N suburbs than the fragmented scraps we had down south. Hardly any lightning and rain started so we pulled away the cameras and 10 seconds later a ripper bolt. Bloody typical. Got back to car, guster kept forming up to be half decent with odd flicker from crawler above our heads before it hit with fairly strong winds and a brief sandblasting. Solid but nothing on the Rememberance Day storm outflow. Felt very disappointed by lack of clean bolts but they were for the North this time!

Bit more messy showers coming withodd isol thunderstorm amongst but infreq bolts. Nice to hear rain again. Certainly a powerful storm but not down south. Overall was like a weaker version of the great Australia Day beast of 1995.

TS cool

Very heavy rain here atm, geez absolutely slamming down. Very humid outside. No lightning, looks like it all died right in the ass just as I predicted but what else is new.

At least we are not getting Mt Gambier's and the LSE/Southern Vic's subarctic wankfest, no storms with bloody ridiculous cold.

And I saw a flash out my window as I typed that.

Very jealous of some of the reports that have been submitted here.
Watched the storm come rolling in here just after 20:20. Went from very still to very windy in a flash (pun intended).
PWS recorded a gust of 80.3 Km/h at 20:32 with sustained speeds of 61.2. Temp dropped from 34.2 (20:28) to 24 (21:03), humidity went from 30% to 80% in 5 minutes (20:28-20:33) shocked and then steadily rose to 98% since then but only a miserly 2mm of rainfall to 22:30 with another mm or so since then.
A few (generally silent) CC's and not very many CG's seen or heard. Rolling cloud was impressive to observe. Winds dropped back to less than 10 km/h since 21:00. Few trees down in nearby area according to AlertSA. Power stayed on the whole time although about 23:45 the lights did flicker and most of the neighbourhood around me appears to be without power but we are soldiering with full supply. Must be a phase or two dropped but not the phase that we are on :biggrin:
No mention of Seacliff Park having an issue on SAPN website, nearest reported outage is next suburb over (Seaview Downs).

Looking forward to seeing the pics from those that have them.

Well, the "likely" thunderstorms never happened, all died right in its goddamned pooey bunghole the moment any lightning made itself visible, same old story, same old running gag that has been the cabaret this summer, all and sundry collapsing into a massive conurbation of regurgitated bovine dung the second it hits here. December 28 all over again.

Bite me BOM, the likely funderstorms were nothing but 5 minutes of rain. HERP DE DERP I PREDICTED THE FIZZZERRRRR BEFORE IT EVEN BEGAN AND LIKE USUAL I WAS RIGHT UNLIKE THE WINDOWLESS SUPERCOMPUTER BASEMENT AT TEH BOM

Was a tricky one to forecast until the last minute - I'd give them an 8/10 on this one. Got the gist right pretty early on and stuck with it despite models diverging. Absolutely sucks that some missed out.

Loc: Reynella, S.A.
had the aircon going home, when i stepped out of the
vehicle it was like stepping into a sauna with RH
in the high 80s and 24°
checking radar archive reynella got bugger all, concrete
was still dry under the trees, TS and i were on the top edge
of the southern cell that went all the way to cape jarvis,
aldinga copped the best core, that green cell to the north
that we could see was the gawler cell and was hard core,
prolly be something on the news about that one tonight.

as far as heat and southerlies go so you damnwell
shouldn't being several hundred Ks north and further
inland, you may as well draw your comparason to tasmania,
the difference is much greater there.
BTW, the lower southeast which runs from about
bordertown/keith down did a lot better for storms than
you did. poke

Puddles, how much rain did you get in that first pass of the
storm around 9:00pm?

That was pretty scary stuff wind wise down here around 8.30 last night. Stobie pole out the front on Henley Beach Rd moving around in the gale and when I see that the airport had a couple of gusts of 111km/h at that time I can see why.

Looks like Adelaide metro ended up with the biggest storm of the whole state, pretty amazing considering some thought we wouldn't see one at all, beautiful stuff.


Another round to come Sunday night/Monday morning.

A teaser from me and a snippet of the strongest gust I got on video. I deliberately clipped this video to start before the gusts hit, as the gust front had already gone past me a few minutes earlier, this came out of nowhere as the back of the storm came through!!
The brief but very intense gust happens around the 55 second mark. This storm literally turned day into night. Probably the heaviest rain I have seen also, cameras can see extremely well through rain, at the height of it visibility was nil! When I say the car is moving, I don't mean just rocking, it felt like it was going to get slid across the road. I was balancing the camera on the steering wheel and you can see just how much the car lurched with the gust.
And a pic of the line as it slowed down and developed near Balaklava, the actual cell I punched was RAPIDLY developing to the north, some rather wild inflow into this storm. It was perfect where it slowed down, it had initially overtaken me at Port Wakefield, but I managed to get far enough ahead to appreciate the full structure.



A language warning for this video, I swear a fair bit in it so if you don't like swearing don't watch poke
