And here comes the rain, fairly heavy after a slow start. I'd send it to Duane if I could.

Edit: Camden has picked up 24mm in an hour.

Edit2: I don't have a good view of the sky here - too many high rises and tall trees, so I can't see any structure.

Small areas of hail around the Plumpton area if the radar is to be believed.

Lots of rumbling and light rain around here (Green Valley). I just got an SMS from by car insurer to protect my car!

Steve777,

I wasn't at home when the storm hit so do not really know how bad it was.
I was actually sitting in the M2 car park at Marsfield and couldn't believe how quickly it built up.
Saw plenty of great lightning bolts and the rain was very heavy and the storm back built for a while right over the top of me. The further west I went, so did the storm, even though it was travelling south east.
I too noticed what looked to be several small funnel clouds and thought so at the time Jimi. Just small rotations in the storm I suppose.

Round 2 is just about to hit. and the storm had black in it a few frames ago.
This is certainly not what the BOM were expecting today. I wonder what changed?

Torrential rain again and just had one amazingly close strike with window shattering simultaneous cracking thunder.

Now, if you'll all just excuse me, I'm going to change my underpants.

I haven't seen a CG fest to the west like this in a long time. Constant thunder too. Not far off now.
Had some ripper flanges in the CBD earlier too.

Driving home from Uni through Figtree and suddenly saw a CG then some loud thunder towards the SW, and then a few more. Then in Unanderra and Kembla Grange, I must've got under the storm because there was amazing torrential rain and puddles everywhere. Looks like my place didn't get the main part of the storm.

I must look at the radar archive, and I will post a pic from the top of Mt Keira too.

And wow Bathurst has had more rain than Orange today!!

Loads of thunder. Encountered a bit of a downpour in Wyong early arvo. Some impressive storm clouds then. The height was stupendous. But it wasnt severe in the end.
You finally got a good drink Dave. Well done

Nice decent cells near Jerrys Plains, so Derek should get something at his place.

I'd like to say Stormy and Gringos will get something but I don't think that will be the case.

Surrounded by storms here at the moment. Quite a lightning display to the South, East, West and Northwest. We've had a couple of really heavy showers around the district this afternoon but only 8mm so far here at the farm. Hopefully a bit more overnight smile

I'll get it before Derek.

Just starting g to spit now. I have been watching the light show for the last hour and half, as I was mowing some of the lawn.

Plenty of rumbles, along of lightning being seen. Very slow moving atm. Shame I don't have a decent camera to take any video or shots. Preparing for a huge blackout, and possible light into strikes on the property. Where have a bad reputation with lightning strikes. So doing the Scout's duty, being prepared.

Awesome stuff Max, you've definitely been getting your fair share of light shows, though not direct hits.

You live Singleton don't you J Pabo?

And looks like a little something for Knotty at The Entrance too.
