Our beautiful sunny day has gone, after peaking at about 25 about an hour ago. It's now fully overcast, although it hasn't got much cooler yet. It looks like it will get interesting later this afternoon, going by the radar and reports here.

EDIT: just had a moderate shower and a peal of thunder. Light rain continues.

Dark to the west with yellow rainy base underneath. Not much wind, calm before the storm.

I'm guessing the arrival of the SWer will dry things up east of the ranges. I'm surprised that these cells are sustaining themselves at the moment.

Thunder audible from the CBD

I'm under the orange cell East of Marsfield. Light, sometimes moderate rain continues, with the occasional roll of thunder. Not as intense as it looks on the radar, but then I wasn't expecting anything this soon.

So so dark

There is some convection in front of the front as well, puffy tops of brilliant white

Interesting: No thunder or lightning from this cell but we had some very tiny hail (like 0.5cm diameter) along with huge wind which is still continuing.

Yeah Donzah it looked very interesting, guess it hasn't hit you yet.

Suddenly a huge flash (though my eyes were playing tricks) then a big rumble that made all the [censored] myna birds fly away.

Look at radar, black cell just north of Dapto, I'm west of there so I missed the worst.

Quite a few rumbles and some nice but very irregular lightning.

Glad Orange isn't hogging all the rain today grin

Still only 5.9c here... could go for another couple of coldies to bring it down a touch further.

I have reports of flurries around Yetholme, just east of here. Not surprised at that.

Good onya DM - left some precip for others smile

About 7mm at the airport although with the hail travelling horizontally, I suspect actually more than 7. smile

There's a black core between Richmond and Blacktown.

Shelf developing to the NW?

Temps now 12-14 in Western Sydney. Change just passed through Olympic Park dropping in from 22 to 17 (so far).

Just heard a crack of thunder.

EDIT: and now the wind. Getting cooler.

You can see the coldest air just to the west of the ALPs, pulsing north.

Storms and showers about Sydney are rapidly falling apart now, although there's still action on the Central Coast.

That last cell was a fizzer - a couple of rolls of thunder and a few light showers, but it's now much colder - around 14-15.

Looks like the Dapto cell skilfully slid between Albion Park and Bellambi gauges. Looked like brief heavy rain towards Warrawong (looking from Shellharbour, where we got 10 drops).

Can see snow virga around 1500m maybe to east now, looks more like a August/September frontal sky.

Yeah it did, I think it was particularly strong around Berkeley/Lake Heights. Someone on your ISC fb page said they had 10 min of hail at Lake Heights, we only had about 2 mins of a small hail and rain mix.

Btw mostly clear here now and not much wind. I'm sure it will start howling like madness at nightfall or a few hours after dark it will just suddenly pick up.
