well that wind made it here without the dust and with some wet stuff...... I was just reaching for the hand towels to wipe the sweat that was dripping off my face but the rain washed it for me before I could get my glasses off lol.
Water's running down the road and also into the water tank. Not a heap but my gawd its cool down now.
And finally just heard the first rumble of thunder.

I cant wait for that line either Lani, just don't hog all of it, lol.
And I see our patch of rain has now been documented on the Thunderstorm tracker, sweet. Should grow bigger as it gets to the coast.
Much more Westerly direction than I would like though, we may miss out & Elf gets it all.

5mm in that surprise heavy shower at my place. Awesome how it went from hot as buggery to pleasantly cool in the space of about 10 minutes. Nice to hear those rumbles as well smile

A bit of thunder and about 3 minutes of heavy rain here on the Logan River to the west of Mt Stappy. Better than nothing I guess, it's cooled it down just a little. Good to see some parts of Brisbane got a storm and some rain, hoping those out west would get some too.

Just got to have a laugh at BOM.
4.15PM forecast for 20% chance of a shower.
5.15pm forecast now 50% chance of shower or storm.
1.5mm from that windy piece of wet storm.

i was still working away downstairs an hour or so ago (only just finished now actually) and heard thunder, then more thunder and saw a flash of lightning before some small amount of rain hit...thought of you and how it'd have to be takeaway for dinner now instead...lol

Now that our equipment is back on after an hour......Vicious ground strikes all around us an hour ago. 4.6mm rain, little wind. Heard sirens heading off to refinery/Port area so guessing some strikes set off alarms over there.

Sounds like you guys got all the lightning then, we only had a rumble of thunder.
But there's more to come yet, although there's been no lightning in that cell either. Can't have everything I guess, lol
Darn frogs driving me nuts though! lol

Top of 40 here with 1.5mm from a passing small cell, I'm content with that.

Strangely a severe thunderstorm warning was just sent to my phone for the Moreton Bay area, are they predicting something to form west? It looks like everything is practically out to sea here.

Well that was a nice downpour. Usually storms miss us here but this one went straight over us. A few nice close flangs. One was especially close causing a blackout for a few seconds. It's eased off but still too much lightning around to go out and check the gauge.

Still 29 deg 'ere, - seen cells to our Sth & Nth, hence Tweed & Sth Brizz respectively. some faint flashes off-shore now, tho I earlier sat in the lightest of sprinkle for the entire 15mins and each tiny droplet virtually evaporated as soon as it landed !!
Mmm, not even needing a hat. let lone sauce wink
see what tomoz brings, but reckon we will be missed and anything going this way will be off-shore ?
Just hope the high cloud takes away before midnight so to let some cool air in before rise ,,, ?

Well that earlier storm has the best looking bum I have ever seen!
It's dark here, stars above and to the NE of us is a great big mushroom cloud that's lighting up everything, even here at times.
Bugger the camera is not crash hot on the phone cos it is silently spectacular.
