Great to see the radar lighting up again! It's been a bit of a slow start this spring.

The storm just NE of Gatton is producing an incredible amount of lightning according to the tracker, the sea breeze is gusting quite strong at the moment so hopefully it'll continue to inject more moisture for it to grow!

Good timing for Mt Stapy to back online! Marburg is pretty well useless like Grafton.

Still got to see if there is enough shear to get them down from the hills.


The broadscale steering winds are from the WSW.

Really bizarre. According to the radar we're under the black west of Brisbane but there's only a few drops of rain and light wind.

Some of the larger hail being reported from a few of the cells - this photo taken by Georgia Quinn at Walloon near Amberley and shared to facebook:

I think Stappy has dreadfully overcooked the storm out your way... looking out towards Oxley-ish way from here it just looks like light rain, there was even a gap in the clouds.

Likewise, here we should be under green-intensity rain, but I'm sitting here with my window open and our roof is barely running off.

Spoke too soon. Good dump of rain and some pea-sized hail. There would have been some bigger stones south of here judging by the radar.

Just drove home from Noosa to Doonan. Moderate heavy rain in Noosa with some pea size hail. I would not be surprised if Noosa-Tewantin records 10-15mm of rain in the end. However back at Doonan and as I drove out of town less rain and at home we only got 2.5mm. Unfortunately rain did not fall in the hinterland where needed to fill home tanks. Enough to dampen grass for a bit.
Can only hope for a round 2 but not holding my breath.

Looks like GFS did quite well with regards to the heaviest precip falling on the southern SC.

A few good isolated storms around with some close CG's in the SW part of town. Only 5 drops of rain however which should about do it for the month. No measurable rain recorded for September. In general, only trace amounts over the past 4 months. The driest I have seen it here since spring 2009. Hope some of you got lucky today. It was nice to hear thunder again but.

Nothing here, looked promising earlier but is now clear skies apart from the area of storms towards the sunny coast. Looks likely that our September total will be a big fat zilch, and after 0.8mm in August things are fairly desperate here. And almost 7 days of 34C+ from Sunday onwards, unheard of for this time of year, especially considering the record max here for Sept is 35.9C and before that was just 34.0C!!
