Sorry I haven't has a chance to report in today peoples. I had to go to Sydney to the specialist. Anyway, I thought you'd be interested to know, those storms that were out this way last night yielded 72mm in the official gauge at Mudgee Airport, however, at the Post Office gauge in town, they recorded 114mm!!! Amazing!!! I believe it too, because when I was driving back from Lithgow Station this afternoon, everything out along the flats from Burundulla Rd almost right into town was submerged!

This was the weak storm approaching from the NW, at this stage it was just south of Stroud. Very little in the way of lightning and thunder, from memory we got about 10mm.

This next pic is the same storm about an or so later and out to sea, to be honest I don't think I have seen such nice structure on the backend of a storm. This storm really exploded once it was offshore but didn't last too long out there.

More distant rumbles on the way here again as I head off to bed.

And a happy World Meteorological Day to everyone tomorrow grin

Just had a look outside and there is fast moving scud coming from the south but no wind, I guess the southerly is not far away.
Lightning to the east as well.
Interesting times lately and ahead.

Greats pics Eddy.

Great pics Eddy.

Re earlier discussion on the Unanderra to Moss Vale rail link last night and earlier today, that's still open for freight, but regular passanger services have been replaced with buses. There are tourist trips to Robertson hauled by heritage locomotives (3801 Ltd). That would be a nice day out. Haven't been along Macquarie Pass for a while, and I was driving and had to keep my eyes on the road.

And nice pic WR for yesterday, looking doen on the low cloud. The view from Mount Kiera (464m) and nearby places on the Illawarra escarpment is spectacular, so high and only about 5km from the sea as the crow flies.

-------

The storms are finished in Sydney. It's still warm (about 22), in fact it warmed up a little since the wind turned Southerly about an hour ago.

Yeah the Illawarra escarpment is very nice, I think I will head up to Mt Keira more often now after Uni. I forgot how nice it was and the Uni is just under the mountain.

Macq Pass is a nice drive, it's not everyone's cup of tea however. I know the road like the back of my hand though, down to basically every corner.

Nice pics Eddy.

Loc: Stanhope Gardens
The storm this afternoon at Stanhope Gardens was quite disappointing compared to Tuesday nights storm with heavy rain and extremely close lighting and thunder.
I first observed today's storm around 3pm when picking up the kids from school. The mainstorm was to the south of me at this stage with quite a lot of lightning visible. The wall cloud came right over us and at one point rotation was visable, low scud was firing out of the storm towards us.
Just as it was looking like we were going to get hammered the storm changed direction and went to the south of us over Blacktown. The best we got at Stanhope Gardens with the very edge was some strong winds and some moderate rain. The lightning and thunder was not close. If we coped the full brunt of this storm it would have topped Tuesday nights storm. All following cells missed us too.
Someone activated the storm shield over Stanhope Gardens today!

Geez Stormy & GR - you parted the storm front yesterday like we did. Same here, just a couple of mm yesterday arvo. Plenty nearby but not over me.

Keep the faith, it MUST rain for you surely with one of these changes. I feel for you because I know how long I've waited too and how that felt.

Causing some problems there - a school is isolated by floodwaters, RFS called to assist in evac.

Nice steady rain here atm, can hear those distant rumbles that have become almost static here over the past few days.

I think someone forgot to let the central west know that it's autumn, not spring poke

Yeah last night sucked Dave. Was keen for that quick time 50mm that could have paid easily out of that setup. Good that Eddy got something, though you never have to worry too much about port stephens area getting rain. Another chance at something this arvo. Really want to just get these dams sorted and then I can relax. All looks very wet at the moment, but with the potential of another Nino, want to be set for the end of the year. When the upper atmosphere is dynamic the weather is interesting and has potential, when the uppers stagnate, nothing happens down here. There might be a few more ECL opportunities yet this season if the cold pools keep up.

Yeah GringosRain, I rather see you get that quick fire 50mm than me, we have already had enough rain these past few weeks. Even though we got a storm, I would only rate it a 3/10.

Steady rain in Wollongong.
Feels like a Autumn sky.
Yet, still very warm and humid.

Moderate rain for the past hour or so. Feels very odd that our local rain gauge only recorded 0.6mm.

Yeh, I've had steady rain since about 4 pm, and it was surprisingly heavy for a period.
A very dark drab afternoon. As Donzah said, it feels very autumn like.
Currently bang on 20 deg's and still raining.
