Currently in Gympie Southside...the wind has really picked up here the last 5 minutes, the storm cell hitting the Sunny Coast looking at the radar doesn't appear to be going any further North then Kandanga, so doubt we'll see rain here...been a nice light show to our South though

Wasn't expecting anything at all today, have about 8ml in the rain gauge, lots of thunder and lightning and pea-sized hail. It smells wonderful. Can't wait for more!

Despite a few problems the set-up was quite promising for this time of year. And then it definitely delivered above expectations. Some good falls, hail and a great lightning show. Probably the best September storm event that I can remember.

Unfortunately we look very storm-deprived in the weeks to come.

Not enough precipitation to wet the ground here. The region did better than expected, however.
A few nice cells went to the north and south in reasonably close proximity.

Looked like a decent storm this afternoon moved through the Bellingen-Dorrigo area and then just inland of Coffs Harbour where it died out, bringing no rain to the city.
Since July 16th (69 days ago), there has only been 0.2mm fall at the Coffs Harbour AWS. Quite amazing, it's hard to imagine Coffs so dry. We've had 4.8mm here since July 16th. Very dry on the NENSW Coast, quite a number of places with just 1-5mm over this period (the odd place here and there with 0-1mm).
Hopefully the final three months of the year are more kind.

It was a wonderful light show here and a total of 2.2mm, which broke the 35 day dry spell and settled the dust a bit.

Now comes the heat!

Very nice picture CJl. The last of storms that hit around 19:30 gave us a total of 11mm. It was pretty impressive for the amount of lightning it threw at us. Now the heat comes and drags all that moisture away. DOH!

We ended up getting 9.4mm at home here, I was out and about during the storms around 3pm and the lightning was just tremendous. Constant flangs and plenty of CC lightning as well.

Whoever posted the other day that storms were likely to be highly charged was spot on.

We had a second cell come through around 8PM where I was at Albany Creek and it was just as ferocious. I was getting in my car at the time and a MASSIVE flang went off right as I touched the door handle, just about gave me a heart attack haha.

Jeez we're in the mid thirties here. Stuff all humidity so its nowhere near as bad as those summer heatwaves, but still, its pretty incredible considering its only September and we have at least another week of this.
