That cell to our SW has hail in it! Heading right for us. Waiting for a good downpour. Constant lightning to our S and SW.

Wow, finally our turn! A good old fashion spring storm with wind, hail and lightning! Hail not big enough to do any damage, but it was still loud. Likely a good 25mm of rain in a short period of time. Thanks for watching out for us over here guys! smile

Reminds me of when I got frustrated after storms kept missing us and then about 2 hours later a supercell dumped golf-ball size hail.

Yes, I guess we all go through storm droughts from time to time. I am just glad the hail was relatively small considering the wind we had. No more than small marble size. I was busy attempting to shield by south facing windows. I remember what happened to those old style windows 2 years ago!

Power has been out for awhile now. We seem to get our best storms here at night. Seems like they are less likely to split and go around us at night. Maybe something scientific behind that? Then again maybe not. Storm shows no sign of weakening as it heads for the range.

It is quite astonishing that Warick has missed out on storms till now considering it is on the same SW to NE line as Boonah. If a storm is even mentioned in the forecast Boonah seems to cop it. Glad you got a drink Warick crew.

Looks like tomorrow (well, today now) could be another late one for SEQ as far as storms go. Moisture depth in the lower levels is actually really good but there's going to be a cap above that which is already starting to show up on Sunday night's Brisbane sounding (from about 825mb to 700mb). The models I've seen have this cap holding out for most of the day through SEQ but at the same time a new line of convection forms out over the western Downs. Shear becomes quite strong through southern parts of SEQ as the trough approaches so these storms should move quickly east towards southern SEQ during the evening. I guess the question is whether it will be more in the form of thundery rain by the time it reaches the coast or something stronger like a squall line? I'm convinced the latter given the much stronger forcing of the approaching trough but we'll just have to wait and see.

And then there's Tuesday which looks great for northern parts of SEQ with activity centred around the WBB during the afternoon as the NW - SE trough line is met by a SE'ster surging up the coast.

Add to that the current cloud cover we currently have and whether it can clear to induce heating.

Some pics from yesterday's storm around the scenic rim area.Mainly the southern part of Beaudesert / Rathdownwy
Kicking myself I didn't go down the coast to Byron, the storms that hit Grafton I initially thought were going to head straight out the sea, not make a turn and head NE. So hard to predict where to go.

Should be some clear air over most of the Downs by this afternoon though which is where the next round of storms is expected to fire off.
