That cell over Kilkoy has been labeled VDS. Doppler sbowing a very interesting signature on it.
Just wind a bit of rain and some lightning and thunder here.

Haven't seen any reports but I would not like to be under the cell just passing Kilkoy.

Just seen the pics of the pea size hail on previous page.

Line formed behind the big black core is packing surprising punch. Doppler suggests southerly wind front stretching right from central SS Coast across the range towards the west. Coming through Buderim seems enough to maybe pull the odd weak branch down, did sea leaves flying through the air and trees waving around everywhere. I'm a bit sheltered behind a ridge and usually when its like this lots of debris and a few small branches down on top of the ridge. Doppler shows small area of rotation, not overly strong just near me, so maybe an isolated pocket of extra punch. Wouldn't even see it if I wasn't looking for something to explain the intensity.

Seems the actual southerly change is still south of Brisbane though. Does this qualify as a squall line.

Holy heck, just had a very bright flash right out the front door and a instant massive bang of thunder hit here....that must have hit close, could feel the house shaking. I'm half deaf from 25 years working in construction, and that bang actually hurt my ears

That line riding the southerly is building. Not much to look at on Doppler wind though.

Naff all up this way, 2.0mm and some solid gusts of wind that blew up more dust than the rain could keep down. Shame too as we needed a drop, its slipping back into drought like conditions up here with no measurable rain in close to a month.

Well this final line doesn't look anything special. Terrible month for storms with only 1 this month and the outlook suggests maybe only a half chance of another next week.

Nothing severe down here but a real nice ending to a hot humid day great Black threatening sky torrential rain lasting about half hour and a few big rumbles of thunder to get the dogs barking

A much needed 9.4mm fell here this past half hour or so as the storm past through...should help some with the dust I was kicking up mowing the lawn last week.

60mm in Kilcoy. Been up at Fraser Island the last 4 days and in that time the grass had turned brown, so very thankful for that drop.

In the ABC article the 2nd half of the video is amazing in regards to the wind.

Severe thunderstorms bring damaging winds and large hail to south-east Queensland
By Patrick Williams, Timothy Swanston and Hailey Renault
Updated 34 minutes ago


VIDEO: Severe storms lash south-east Queensland (ABC News)
A "very dangerous" thunderstorm packing giant hail and destructive winds tore through parts of south-east Queensland on Saturday evening, damaging homes and bringing down trees and powerlines.

Areas to the north of Brisbane were the hardest hit, with the worst of the weather reported from rural Kilcoy, the Sunshine Coast hinterland, and areas in and around Gympie.

Wayne Muras, who manages Stanley Hotel in Kilcoy, said the storm brought down trees in the main part of town.

"We were watching it on the radar on our our phones and we said, 'this is going to get pretty serious'," Mr Muras said.

"The wind was that strong the rain was actually going sideways, it was just straight across.

"The gutters were full, trees were blowing down in the main street across the main bridge getting into Kilcoy, it was pretty full-on.
"We only got pea-sized hail, but I think on the outskirts of town it would have been a lot bigger.


"I'm sure there'd be a lot of trees down everywhere."

Kilcoy resident Rory O'Donnell said the storm was "short and sharp" at his place.

"The wind was real strong, I got a bit concerned we'd be having a tree in the lounge room with us for dinner," he said.
Another Kilcoy local, Debra Harrip, could only watch as hail stones the size of golf balls tore apart her backyard and damaged her house

"The house leaked and I have towels everywhere, but I think it's OK just the guttering not coping. The chook pen, not so much," she said.
Already today BOM said hail measuring up to 4 centimetres was recorded at Urbenville, just south of the Queensland border.

Smaller hail has also been reported west of Toowoomba and in the Upper Lockyer.

Storms also left more than 9,500 properties without power, mostly around Gympie.

Yeah, definitely a disappointing result on the whole for today and tonight. A real shame since this November like last has been rubbish for storms and the outlook doesn't look much better. In fact, a return to westerlies looks to be on the cards following a strong front mid-week...even some possible record cold temperatures through a swath of NSW is possible behind the front too. Terrible.

edit: Nice pix Gleno, as usual. smile

Was a bit of a messy structure down Byron way, though inland from Byron looked a bit more organized. Forecast went as planned.
