Brilliant photos on here given what was on offer! Today's a stark contrast to the same day last year. Even though the temps suppose to hit thirty, it's still almost 16 degrees cooler!

A frustratingly wasted trip into Clare this morning. Could have been chasin' storms. mad Did get some awesome structured cloud photos though, will post 'em up soon.

OT: Paid for the new camera today, should arrive on Monday or Tuesday... hopefully there's some residual weather to photograph. smile

Bad luck with the storms Helen, what sort of camera are you getting? Another Canon? Looks forward to seeing those beaut photos when you get it laugh

well as Tim said, those storms are now centered over North EP and the NE pastrol so that's it here for now folks, but keep an eye early next week for another infeed and possible storms again. wink

Ah Rick, 'bout time you had a flangfest. cool DS, that's some serious wind. smile

Yep Mason, another Canon indeed, 5D MkII with battery grip. grin

As promised, some piccies. Its been anvil heaven all round here. Have seen lots of boltage out of these today too, just too unlucky to capture it... but at least the SDS is tempered for a bit... and we've had another 4.2mm. wink

My favourite today...


and some clickable thumbs:

Again looking very interesting with EC again bringing ex-Olga down over SA on Tuesday. GFS brings a fair bit of a NE infeed down preceding it which is why BOM are going for storms in eastern districts on Sunday & Monday.

Still looking very interesting out to my east. I had a brilliant day chasewise. Hopefully I've got some pics for my effort. I'll upload later and look through them. Six mm of rain in about six minutes. I'm going back out for a look in case I miss something. wink

That is a wicked photo Helen, I agree with Tim, calendar worthy! On the subject of agreeing with tim, I too am hoping Olgas remains comes down to us from the NE. I've seen similar setups with heaps of moisture coming down to east of the flinders, then, if your just lucky you get a bit of a cool change come in over SA and the flinders will lift up the cooler air coming in from SA and put it over the warm moist air from the tropics, you should see the cells that kick up off the flinders from that. Well I'm off til tuesday and well and truly over being tired from going out to the pub all the time, might as well be tired from watching storms all night I reckon, might head up to leigh creek or arkaroola, ive never been up that area of SA before.

thats an amazing shot there Helen, looked very similar here all day yesterday, we had a power outage here from 7pm to about 4am, but I guess thats the downside of a whole day of storms!

Hi

Nice work Helen.

Drove Glendambo to Mildura & day started with sparkage and rumbles in the distance nearly all the way to Pt Augusta. About 80 kms north of Pt Augusta, noticed a couple of impressive storms over northern Eyre peninsula & figured they'd have run out of puff by the time I got anywhere near them. At Pt Augusta noticed that crossing the Spencers Gulf (probably near Pt Germain) they seemed to be still going and near Wilmington noticed how they'd propogated a cell that appeared just south of Melrose. Driving along Wilmington - Orroroo road this storm (probably multicell) strengthened maybe approaching severe from time to time.



As you can see it had some curved layering, outflow, but most impressive was the inflow line.

It weakened for a short time, and then between Orroroo and Peterborough strengthened again, the noteworthy aspect being the long infeed line.



This briefly curved into a focus point



Around this time I had a flang about 100 metres away, which quickly dissuaded me from leaving the car!

This storm delivered very minor flooding to Peterborough, then headed out to the east where there are no roads



An hour or so later, between Burra and Mt Bryan, another smaller storm developed - I'm not sure if this is Helen's storm from a different angle!



Thanks SA for a nice little chase through the Southern Flinders Ranges!

Fabulous report there, Michael and excellent photos. Can just about feel the hail in that 3rd photo. cool My photo was taken at the Spalding turnoff looking NW (southern end of the wind turbines). At the time, the anvil was still over the Brown Hill Range between Spalding and Jamestown. I was truly amazed at how fast it developed. Took that photo on my trip into Burra and by the time I returned about a hour later, it had expanded to be east of the Barrier Highway. The other photos were taken on my way into Clare at midday... stuck waiting in the the Medical Clinic, thunder, lightning and rain prevailed. Unbeknownst to me, the same was happening at home and yielded a nice drop.

Humble thanks people, for the compliments on the photo. I love it when Mother Nature co-operates. smile

So I think it must be the only places not to get a decent storm this summer period are the Adelaide/plains region and the South East.

Tks Helen & Tim (hopefully got your name right - think I met you in Glen Innes a few years ago!). We must have nearly crossed paths today near Burra, Helen - sampled the local bakery, which was good. Yeah, that storm went up quick - was real pretty coming over the turbine hill. At the risk of going on about it ad nauseum, the preponderence of inflow lines both long and short was a real eye opener for me today.
