Haha! So am I.
Nothing on the lightning tracker to the west either.
Whatever we get, will have to develop from now on.
I'm trying to stay patient, but geez, it's a bit frustrating.
I can see some towers going up on the CWF webcam in clearer skies.
Maybe that's our hope?

Perhaps so but it's nothing impressive at this stage by the looks of it.
I'm also quite surprised that nothing has developed on the boundary of the southerly. There is also a bit of blue sky to the west so hopefully stuff is developing out there. One thing is for sure, it's bloody hot and uncomfortable, temp in the mid 30's and DP's in the low 20's.
That kind of thing just does not happen here but it has happened several times this summer, mainly in a NEer though.

Couldn't agree more.

Storm line moving quickly and developing rapidly. Currently about Cowra to Forbes and a little beyond.

They are the tall towers you would have seen on the Cam Homey. Couple of sparks have appeared in that line.

Yep. Some sparks just starting to show, and it's showing up on the radar and sat pics now.
There's still some hope!!

Hopefully it also starts spreading southwards as well, there are few light showers spreading from Cowra to about Crookwell so it would be awesome if that turned into a nice squall line.

Sydney is on track for its hottest January ever. The January 2017 average minimum (21.5C) is way above the previous record of 21.0C in 1991. In terms of maxima, the Jan 2017 mean is currently 29.2C, just behind the 1896 record of 29.5C. In terms of January mean temperature, it is so far the warmest ever (25.4C versus 25.1C in 1991). More heat next week makes the odds of a maximum record pretty good.

Also interesting is that Penrith has had more 40C&+ days than ever previously observed for a Dec-Jan period, with 7 so far and likely more next week. The heat approaching late this week and early next week looks deadly.

It most certainly will be the hottest January on record for the majority of eastern NSW I'd think.

In some years the heat seems to die off around mid-January and is replaced by easterly maritime weather to take us through February. Other years January is a near constant maritime influence with only brief incursions of sun and heat. But this year, it is near constant heat through the month and little maritime influence which is why it would surely have to be the hottest Jan on record.
In saying that we haven't had 40C yet this season while January 2013 got two 40+ degree days, but also the aforementioned mid-January cool down where this year it's regular well above average days but not record breaking ones

Homer, if you click on the earth sign it has other information.
I usually just google lat/long to find the position.
But, as Dave said, it is pretty to look at smile

There's a bit of cell coming my way and for once I know that it will probably not fizzle out, but possibly get stronger as it hits higher temps and dew points. However, we may or may not get a direct hit.

That's a record that won't stand for many years.

Our preliminary analysis is indicating highest minimum and mean January temperature on record for large slices of eastern and northern NSW, but highest maximum only for a small pocket near the Queensland border - 1939 is a tough bar to clear in most inland areas.
