Thanks Flowin. Nice cell approaching Karrara, looking good right now.

Line towards Toowoomba strong on satellite, but weak on radar, so looking like light show more than rainfall action for this moment in time

Yup, it is pretty solid. Won't last long, but a nice downpour would be nice.

Poor quality mobile phone pics of the storm that went over Pomona this evening. This was right next to the Black Pinch BOM rain gauge. Apparently Imbil got a good hit from it, but in spite of the pretty structure there was very little wind, no hail, and only 1mm of rain for Pomona. Good first storm chase for my 2yr old :-D

Line fell apart, so, not much rain at all. Better luck next time. At least it will be getting cooler.

I'm not convinced it was a tor, tbh.

Along the coastal fringe today on the northern MNC it was warm and rather humid (dewpoints in the low 20s). Places inland from the fringe were hot but had lower humidity, until the NE'ly seabreezes moved through those places.

Southerly change came through here shortly after 11pm(EDT). Spitting rain over the past half hour. Elevated storms have brought isolated thunder/lightning to the coast south of Port Macquarie so far this evening. A chance this isolated activity could occur up here on the northern MNC over the next hour or two.

As I was standing outside impatiently waiting for my kids to come from school before the storm hit, I looked up to see a funnel-like formation and this was when the storm was possibly at it's weakest. Ran inside to grab my phone, but by the time I came back out, the definition had gone, but it was most definitely a clear rotation of cloud with a hollow centre rather than a bit of crud on a wall cloud. So, it wouldn't surprise me if there was some tornadic activity from it somewhere.

This was a shot I took about 4.15pm from Keperra looking NNW.

Awesome Matt.
This morning I have seen some pics of a awesome storm front coming up thru the Gold Coast, kind of like a shelf cloud associated with the southerly.

Wolvi total for this event - SFA.

I'd be keen to know why areas well to the south and north of WBB got more or less as predicted whereas WBB and immediately adjacent areas, even though it was more or less the bullseye for Monday, got such an extraordinary under whelming result of near biblical proportions.

Yes Flowin, you are absolutely right. One must be patient. Let me say, the cooler, drier air is feeling great! No major heatwaves in sight, which in itself, is good news!

On Sunday, I think the cap through our area was too strong, and there wasn't really any extra forcing to help break it (trough was too far west the further north you went).

For yesterday, I think a couple of things; again the cap was strong through our area but the dryline (which triggered those storms through Brisbane), once again, lagged too far west the further north you went. So once again we saw storms fire off all the way out over the Central Highlands and make their way towards the Capricorn Coast during the evening. Why the bottom half of those storms completely disintegrated as they reached the Burnett I'm not sure. However one thing I did notice was a LOT of high level anvil rubbish streaming ahead of those storms on the southern flank during the afternoon and surely enough that flank just died soon after. https://i.imgur.com/98qfq2L.png

Just one of those setups that didn't fall into place for us, it happens. My 2c.

Thanks Mega.

Yeah it definitely happens alright. And the fact that the event didn't happen, to me, is just as extraordinary as if it had.

Inexplicable as it may well be at the moment it sure would be nice to have some idea as to why. Not that there will be much to be done about it except maybe wash the ute more often.
