just for the record the systems coming in over e & yp at the
moment are moving at 110-115kmh, that's a lunatic speed i've
never seen before, the best i've seen when i've bothered to
measure is 90+ many years ago, a normal fast moving storm
i've found to be 80+ and an average middle of the road speed
is 60-70, below 40 starts to skirt zombie territory.
i think most people will know when this gets here, light rain
and breeze outside at the moment. like TS said the best will
go to the south but hopefully can get the top edge.

An incredible experience listening to the wind atm. Short periods of calm then you hear a roaring build in the wind above the ground before it slams through then back to calmness and silence. Had some very strong gusts here on the back end of a mid level rain area. When this LLJ mixes down it is quite nasty.

Going nuts out west, what ceduna has had tonight is nothing short of top shelf, incredible number of bolts.

Well that was pretty well the best high based nocturnal storm I've ever seen here. Absolutely massive angry bolts and very clean. Problem..I was to the west of Clare when they decided to go mental.. completely out of position to photograph, 90% ccs then goes angry CG mode directly over head. blegh

Still I'll take it, that was [censored] awesome.

Ep/West Coast certainly had the best of it last night, show of epic proportions constantly building and sliding down, unfortunately they kept spreading to broader showers and areas of patchy rain by the time they got near Adelaide as the focus point remained further west with LLJ over but critical sfc convergence to the west and mighty frustrating that was because you won't get a better setup for high based bolts and that was clear....however the slowness of things has helped today....things will rapidly fill in during the morning and early afternoon with heating, sfc and mid level based showers and thunderstorms ahead and along the trough, before contracting east into a big line of storms over the Mallee/Riverland etc. Nice storm actually formed over the Mid North and shot down the northern ranges this morning near sunrise.

TS cool

Recorded 5.5mm until 715am this morning. A few rumbles during the afternoon but nothing substantial.

Was watching a Rex flight banking towards us this morning and you could see it was being pushed rapidly to the west. I reckon the aircraft was pointing ca 45 degrees into the wing.

Also saw CX174 on its way to Hong Kong. It started off at usual takeoff speed as it rose above the trees, then seemed to hit a brick wall at a certain height once it encountered stronger winds. We could see the wings waving about a bit and the pilot would have had a battle on his hands making headway in that howling NE'er. Would have been a bumpy ride with moderate turbulence below 4500'.

Still blowing its guts out here at Kilburn atm.

just a heads up to city peeps, I have a strong suspicion based on EC and ACCESS that the city wont see much today. So just a warning not to get hopes up.
Def north and east of city should explode.

Yes that appears to be correct. All the good stuff just sliding south down YP and the gulf.

An awful lot of dust is being kicked up north of the city at the moment..

Meanwhile...I'm patiently waiting for some afternoon convection to kick in.

Looks like some rain fall in places:

Elliston - 32mm
Gluepot - 3mm
Cleve - 17mm
Turretfield - 7mm
Loxton - 2.4mm
Maitland - 8mm

Looking at the rain radar today I would suggest a few places have done better than that.

So much lightning around Broken Hill, Morgan and the Riverland - me wonders what happened out there today?
Bushfires?

PS: I'll answer that - yep grass fires - https://sapaging.com/jobs?type=.fire

13mm from this event thus far and still drizzling. Loving the cooler temps and lack of dust.

0.9mm until 7am today.

Would have liked a bit more for the garden. I don't think much would have amounted from the drizzle that was around this morning.

Same as this morning really - I got well wet cycling to work ;-)
