The half-developed shelf cloud that passed over Wollongong an hour ago. Think this was the northern tip of that southern cell

Picture perfect approaching shelf-cloud, what a start to the storm season it has been right from early September.

Torrential rain now with flangs everywhere. Also, very gusty. No hail yet.
Agreed A2A. This has been a fantastic start to the storm season.

Plenty of CGs visible to my NW and if I squint there's a tinge of green to the clouds.

Lightning tracker has lit up like a Christmas tree.
It has become absolutely wild here now!! Very dark. Howling wind and torrential rain. Constant rumbles and close flangs. Best storm for a long time.

Lots of cracks, rolls and rumbles, moderately lightning-active, a couple of CGs. Light to moderate rain but the main band hasn't reached here yet.

Sydney Olympic Park has received 10 mm in half an hour.

EDIT:
Sydney Airport 18 mm in under 10 minutes.
Sydney OH 10 mm in 15 minutes

Recieved 15mm here in 20mins. Including 11mm in 8mins. About 5-6 really nice flangs. No hail however. One really impressive gust before the heaviest rain hit. Guestimate about 90-100kph briefly. Green tinge in shelfie just west of here too, so some ice wouldve fallen in maroota st forest

Would have had the same here Quagy.
Storm lasted about an hour. 2 periods of torrential rain. The initial storm front was wild. After that, it was just very heavy constant rain, with lightning every 2 - 3 seconds. There was a period of about 25 minutes where there wasn't a second that I could not hear thunder.
After my earlier comment replying to WR about how lightning inactive the storms appeared, it just exploded.

Raining steadily still atm, and it looks like we're in for a period of just rain now for an hour or so. Could have another 5 mm's. I just heard a further rumble to the west, although I don't expect anything like earlier.
