Yeah hopefully we get something, we certainly should. I got a storm at home on Thursday, but I wasn't there.

More storms are forming behind the initial storm front, looks like the advection is really occurring there.
Also it's really nice to see some North-West moisture coming into this system, it's quite nice to see such rampant drops with the Positive IOD conditions persisting in the Indian Ocean.

Yes some more nice storms forming behind the main front. Here's hoping WR! Should just clip the northern edge of that line

Found a high point, walked up to the top of a bridge to get a better view. High cloud starting to thin a bit to my west to North west. Lots of towers going up in the distance towards to edges of the metro to the west of this thinning cloud getting one or two chunky in the distance. P

BoM needs to update the STW. Storms are now pushing to Jervis bay/Bowral. Meanwhile the STW from more than 2 hours ago extends to around Goulburn area.

Also interesting to see that they cancelled the warning for monaro, South Coast and ACT. Still a few strong cells popping up down there.

Nice storm about to hit me now. Getting very windy

A black cored monster is being born behind the 'gap'of the initial storm front. Interestingly looking at the sky is mainly clear to my west a solid anvil has formed to my South-West.

Almost perfect conditions here for storms 28.9 degrees and a dew point of 18.1. Hopefully the cold Maritime layer doesn't make it this west. With Bellambi at 18.7 degrees.

It was a disappointing morning and early arvo with high cloud and poor vis, but high cloud broke out west and overhead an hour ago and it heated up quickly and started firing up on the ranges. Currently booming away in the distance with new cells going up fast

7 News has reported that someone has died after being struck by lightning near Dubbo today. So unfortunate RIP.

Pretty poor lightning rate with these storms, I've seen 2 flangs in about 15 minutes. Some pretty interesting cloud features to the east though.

That is really unfortunate about that person frown

Towers going up to the north and west of here and even almost overhead. It's looking more solidly black further west, so these towers are growing ahead of the main storm.
Shouldn't be long now.
I agree, these storms aren't very lightning active. Not like they are further west and north west.

The Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been extended to the coast from about The Entrance to Ulladulla (LARGE HAILSTONES, HEAVY RAINFALL and DAMAGING WINDS). There's a gap in the clouds over Sydney now to allow a bit of heating. The seabreeze is active in the East, the wind feels almost cool here.

The radar is filling up to the West of the metro area, with cells near Colo Heights and in the Blue Mountains.

It looks like most of the falls out West were just a couple of millimetres. There are a couple of isolated higher falls: 26 mm in Coonamble seems to be the highest.

EDIT: just checked the new Sydney forecast. Storms still on for tonight but tomorrow's rain has been wound back to 5-20 mm. Monday's rain had been cancelled.

Apparently he was standing out in the middle of a racecourse....in the middle of a storm. Gee that's smart.
