Plenty of thunder now to my ne with that large cell pushing in. Hopefully we see some substantial falls as ne’erlies are good for us.

Very solid 30mm here - putting that in perspective is 18% of what we’ve had for the last 6 months.

Gringos, Stormy - sorry to hear the rain missed you. That yellow blob approaching last night looked good. Hopefully you'll do better today - the showers seem to be coming from the East.

-----

Sydney did well last night, especially the area around Botany Bay which finished with 50+ mm. I noticed a briefly black core pass over the La Perouse peninsula late last night - hail?

Sydney OH finished with 32.6 mm, nearby Chatswood 23, Bankstown 24. At OH, with a max of 15.1, it was the coldest day since July 12 last year.

----

There's been no rain here since I got up. The Sun's been trying to break through for the last hour or so. However, there's a lightning-active storm off the Northern Illawarra and more storms out to sea, so hopefully there's more to come.

I spoke to my parents last night who live at Cronulla and they said that they had some small hail in the early evening.

Yeah I heard a big one too, the latest radar run shows a storm also building on land basically on top of you, heading west towards me. Wow and another with a big CG!

As much as I want to see some sunshine, I must admit I do love days like these past two days, low cloud that makes it so dark that you you need every light on in the house to see. Not good for the electricity bill though. smile

On the North Shore, this morning has been cool and partly cloudy, with a couple of light showers and lengthy sunny breaks. There are showers about but they're mostly missing us, passing to the South, although her's a light shower falling just now.

The water is flowing over the Lane Cove Weir for the first time in a while, probably since March. Riverside Falls are flowing, just a little bit now, but they'll build up if the additional forecast rain arrives.

Here is Sydney around 10:45AM from this webcam

Gee that next line is looking tasty - should slap the whole coast from Sydney to Kiama if it holds (this is where the Escarpment really helps us in e/ne flows - it makes the lines "stand up" and briefly intensifies them allowing heavy rain and lightning).

Looks like natures chiming in for vivid Steve. Yeah jimi that red cell moved right over here at work. Looked impressive incoming as blue sky preceded, nice cold air explosive cumulus with dark as night bases. Very heavy for 10 mins. One thunder roll heard on approach. More more more

1-4 pm looks like the peak of activity as the Li index reaches to its highest point. Also in other good news winds in my area have switched easterly. Hopefully I will be home for some storm activity.
Just looks like I've finally had my autumn break recorded 25.4mm from this event.

Some solid cores appearing in this lot, probably a good idea to put out a storm warning.

What a relief this must be for SW Syd, in line for more

Fair point - flash flooding major risk as ground is so dry - also you'd think land slips a possibility along escarpment, especially with that cell pushing ashore near Helensburgh right now.
