Yep got VERY wild here for a while. Intense winds causing little leaks I've not had before. Crazy wind.

Temp dropped from about 20 to about 11 in a very short time.

Gone as quickly as it came

It's looking very dark to west so I decided to check the radar and wow!!! That's a squall line! Of course I don't have my camera with me today. wink

Check out the sat pic too.

I believe that wind gust homer, it seemed to be the windiest storm I can remember here.

It went from benign to ferocious in the blink of an eye, or so it seemed.

Lots of sparkage too

Sitting outside having a beer and looking at the sky here you wouldn't think there is a cold front coming through later on tonight. But today was just an absolute stunning day, although slightly ruined this morning by playing 9 holes of golf, but it was quickly redeemed with an afternoon at the beach, now its beers and a spa!!

Yes WR - Sat pic and lightning tracker looks great.
The low in Bass Straight is spinning up nicely.

I'm keeping an eye on this as well......

Looks like Reilly/Donzah are just about to get a nice hit.

Ahhhhh, that's the life Eddy!!

It was the same here an hour ago. Absolutely so sign of the impending front. Warm and sunny.
Then about 10 minutes ago the cloud arrived and now it's really dark. This thing is moving very quickly.

Getting eeriely dark here as others have also mentioned. Haven't heard any thunder or seen any lightning so not sure if it's going to take me by surprise once the front hits.

Edit: there we go. Nice long rumble. smile

Wind is crazy at the moment, no warning on BOM though? Flapping useless.
