Just got home. Absolutely no damage whatsoever which is a relief and a surprise. What a shame would have been the best storm i have ever witnessed if i was at home.

I gotta agree with Sidney on that one. I love storms but certainly would not enjoy the large damaging hail that was around today. We seem to be pretty supercell proof here but sometimes we do get damaging hail. I read somewhere that Berowra got 8 to 10cm hail and based on the photos it was definitely pretty big.

I agree. In the first storm today, I got hail about 20 cent piece sized, and the noise was horrendous. Sounded like it was going to smash through any of my 9 skylights. Thankfully it didn't.
The inconvenience of the insurance repair job of my pergola and flooded lounge room from a hail storm 12 months ago was enough for me to not want storms like these.

Were nothing but epic storms here., brothers cars windshield is smashed, cracked skylight with the first cell. The the second directly hitting cell an hour later litterly turned day into night, went straight into blackout. 2 trees in my yard were struck by lightning during a 2-3 minutes of constant shotgun/rifle strikes hitting everything around us like Hollywood movies we were all saying, with almost no visibility with the wind and rain. The trees hit are a BIG shame for us, we revere them. Beautiful eucalyptus canopy’s that sit just above our front deck over-looking the beach where all the king parrots and the rest of the birds hang in of an rvo.
Somehow still all worth it!!

If its possible....we didnt get anything. Not enough rain to wet the cement. Some amazing storm structure, swirling cloud and vistas. Picked the only gap in 1000ks of storms. Standard for here. Well done to everyone else. Great to see some storms about for a change.

GR do you suffer from a rain shadow of any sort because the cells were moving SW?

Here were were hit by three bouts of storms. The first storm didn't provide too much in terms of precipitation as it was some rain intermixed with hail.
This seemed to have injected moisture into the air and when the sun came out again we peaked with a dew point 24.0 although the figure maybe slightly inflated due to a higher temp. This allowed the next two storms to be precipitation heavy. All for today 27.9mm.

Leaving us with a 131.6mm for December, a 4th month in a row of above average rainfall. This has been a big turn around, very grateful for it. Although now I'm worried for an extended dry period which may be upcoming impacting people who may have not been as lucky as me.

Loc: Central Coast
Im on the southern end of the Central Coast and we got smashed by 2 cells, the first around 5pm easily 10cm sized hail with the odd one even larger. Never in my life have i seen hail that size and nor do i want to again. Huge hail damage around, from smashed windscreens to extensive roof damage.

The second cell came around 7pm, small hail but the wind was intense, a few local PWS read up to 100kmh and they have a tendency to under-read. Also picked up about 40mm.

Great work on getting some totals in the bank AtA. Southwesterly shear is usually pretty good here, but the storms were moving in multiple directions (with general easterly movement). In this case, there was a gap in the line from waaaay out west and it just didnt fill in properly by the time it got here. So it was just luck this time more than a geographical effect, but the watagans do move storms around us at times especially in WNW and NW shear. Not Keen on hail anyway. Got an amazing cloud show. That will have to do for a consolation.
Looks like quidge is back though and looks like pretty hard core heat coming up so our little squirt will be a distant memory soon.

P.S. there is a photo out now on the tornado in Pokolbin. You can search Hunter Happenings on FB. It does look like a funnel not just a could formation. So in the end I think we did see tornados coming off the ranges into populated areas. I dont think this was the only one either. Im very sure the putty storm spat one out for one or two frames on Doppler. In the middle of nowhere though NW of the central coast probably around Mt Yengo.

Loc: Artarmon (Sydney North Shore)
Here's the view of the storm approaching Artarmon around 6:00PM. I've blocked out the glare from a street light in the middle of the picture.



It's totally overcast and mild to warm with light breezes. It's been stuck on 21-22 since yesterday evening and will probably mostly stay there all day.

Here's another view of the approaching storm, again with the glare from the nearby street light mostly blocked (a faint orange glow from the light remains). I tried posting this yesterday but for some reason resize didn't work - apologies.

So lucky here in Gorokan yesterday we certainly dodged a bullet with the storm further south..
I cant think of anything more useless in weather than hail.
I see some on line cheering for more hail.. I mean seriously you can only want hail if you don't own anything of value..
Scored 12 mm of rain during the storm ,and 30mm the day before
