Starting up here. The wind picked up, although I think the main front is yet to come. There's sheet lighning and thunder to the West. It's been raining lightly for several minutes, with the rate just picking up now.

BOM haven't dropped the ball here, it's been piss weak with maybe a few gusts in the 40-50km/h range and a bit of light rain.... I've seen busters deliver more exciting weather than this.

That was one hell of a blow!!! Incredible storm, I was standing outside facing east and the wind was very strong. Then a complete whiteout and twigs blowing everywhere. I just stood there with my mouth open in disbelief and shock and then went inside for a bit because I was afraid a tree was going to come down. Then it came through in waves after the main wind. Now we have a very decent light show out to sea here in Balgownie.

That was most wind I have ever seen in a storm!!!

Yes CS22, I think that the lower North Shore was in a bit of a gap. It's been basically light to moderate thundery rain here with a bit of wind, which seems to have died down. It's the luck of the draw.

It looks like the front dropped temperatures by about 8-9 degrees, e.g Airport from 25.5 to 17.0 between 6:00 and 6:30 PM.

EDIT: have a look at the 512 km composite radar. It looks like a cold front on the map (apart from the teeth).

EDIT2: have a look at the Sydney doopler as well. There's a lot of red extending NW from the Richmond area.

A large area wouldve been hammered by severe stuff, however a few places only got some mod rain, bit of lightning and wind (like here on the northern beaches where it weakened a bit on approach).

Wowsers
That came through like a rocket.
Was odd in Woonona, we had a balmy teasing storm around 3.30pm.
Wandered down the club. Outside area faces west. You could see the cloud building, yet it seemed to be happening slower than the radar. Then wow. Rain whipping into the windows, branches , leaves getting smashed around. 87kmph gusts..

Anyways , good moisture at Perisher at the moment. It isn't that cold (just on 0) so the 1200m asl snow level from the BOM seems a bit optimistic.
