My place is still a warzone, chopped up 5 trees but need pros in to take down half fallen gums and corals. Theres a few trees around here just snapped half way up. Although its been a major hassle ive still enjoyed the start to this storm season

There's a storm in progress here, with lightning, thunder, moderate rain. Everything is still hidden by low cloud, which swallows the tops of the taller buildings in Chatswood. Looks like things are about to intensify.

The rain is light but steady, here. The sky is an unusual colour - mauve, with an orange glow. Fairly steady rumbles, now.

The sky took on a strange light orange glow for a while here, now it's heavy rain and lightning. It won't last long though, most of the action is still way to my north.

There's a clearing edge rapidly approaching and the lightning activity is on the wane, so it should finish up for tonight soon. There have been some useful totals about Sydney, 43 mm at Penrith, 40 at Richmond, a number of other totals over 25 in the NW. Sydney OH picked up 13, it was probably about the same here.

P.S. I think the rain gage at Olympic Park is malfunctioning. It was in the direct oath of a couplevif cells but only shows 0.2.

The amount of nitrogen from these thunderstorms and life giving rain has really turned to greenery from the dry land of SW Sydney of previous months. Beautiful.

What a day, we coped storms from around 5pm with it continuing to around 8:30pm with continuos moderate to heavy rainfall. 62mm of rainfall recorded on my PWS Parklea. Rain rates got as high as 99mm per hour.
No wind and mostly cloud to cloud lightning with some loud cracks.
When it eased off at 8:45 I also observed the golden sunset like glow of the clouds. Bit weird considering sunset is at 8pm.

Cannot believe we are not included in the storm warning, no wind or hail as yet, but rainfall is phenomenal.

CGs are awesome too.

At the rate these storms were moving you would have had to have been quick off the mark to chase them down. They are rapidly moving off shore to the NE.

I was actually thinking that earlier today, the best start to a storm season at least. We only got some light rain here though but I was never expecting anything today and I don't mind when we've had so many storms lately and probably more tomorrow.

I think the key thing seems to be the pretty regular low pressure in this area so the air has been unstable a lot.

That thunderstorm was good and unexpected. Ended up with 17mm from it.
The last CG off the coast about an hour ago was one of the heaviest I've heard in a long time, 3 distinct explosions off it then a loud long deep rumble.


What will tomorrow bring?

I've noticed one thing which is that the storms will be moving very fast even compared to today with 700mb winds up to 45 knots. Nort much instability right on the coastal fringe but it won't be needed with those speeds. Can see why the forecast says gusty storm, could be some serious wind damage with any decent storm.
