Very small hail, baby peas size, not a lot of it, and some rumble, enough to scare my cat.

00z GFS had precip inland and a fair area of it that has not eventuated yet. Looking at satalite and clunching at straws abit of convection firing up out there. Any reports?

Mainly blue skies out here, a little bit of cu to the S and SW but nothing worth writing home about. Looks like 1mm will be the total here from this event and probably the month with nothing else on the horizon.

GFS precip is often atrocious even at short range so Iím not surprised. I didnít get a chance to look at anything more than ACCESS-C for today but from how itís evolved so far, it was pretty close to the mark (very little near the coast with isolated activity inland).

Yes Steve O. I am still out here in Texas and there is a nice little rumbler to our east. Very dark with rain shaft visible and getting closer. Traveling around just reminds me of how inactive the weather is out in Warwick, lol.

Was up the coast and missed all the rain, when I got back to work in Brendale it looked like there had been a downpour.

3mm seems to be the average amount recorded at local PWS's so must have been thick and fast.

Steady rain from this system overnight and into this morning. Hard to pick what is happening from the radar, looks like at least a smaller low is circulating within the larger trough and has moved closer to shore to our north.

Well it's strange that, the winds in Northern NSW are South Westerly, however the rain is coming in from the South East lol . Looks like some of the Northern NSW cloud is slowly making it's way up to Southern QLD

Nah not strange - it's simply because the low level winds at the height of the clouds have more of a SSE component than the surface winds which are more SSW.

Looks like the change has moved thru the Gold Coast region now. Very overcast after a clear morning

Are there any surprises in the atmosphere before the thread date ends.
Not lookin likely to the untrained weather observer. The low appears to far SE of SEQ.

Rain periods here today courtesy of the weak low sitting off the north coast. For the most part, it's been light to steady rain, however there has been the odd brief burst of moderate to borderline heavy rain, which has helped to bring 28.8mm since 9am. Thunder has been heard this evening from storm activity offshore, making it the fifth day in a row with thunder heard.
5.0mm fell in the 24hrs to 9am from light rain at times.

Bet there were a few Wide Bayer's surprised to hear the odd rumble tonight - I know I was! No rain here though - all slid just to our west.

Yes, surprises in rapid or random onset and equally quick departure of instability seems to be on the weather menu more often at this time of year.
