Wonder how SM's bike ride is going? crazy

DaveM, we missed the first line that went through as well. It split in two and we went straight through the middle. Very strong winds though. Young Lisa is doing some homework on cyclones and went out and filmed when the gust front hit. Perfect timing - lol.
I'm looking more to the next line coming through. It looks more solid.

Bummer!

Yep, out here the sun is back; the breeze, though quieter, is still from the nw and the stickiness index is well and truly up! Hoping the easterly arrives before bedtime!

Previous line that smashed the rest of Sydney pretty much formed overhead, was very annoyed to see the next frame absolutely explode and morph covering half the metro from north to south,lol.

Boy, was my face red.

Second and most likely last line breaking right in the middle. frown

I went down to Clarke's Point and copped it full on. Probably the best buster I have seen since 2003 or so. Massive wind, probably 90-95km/h gusts, which capsized sailing boats and yachts on the water. There was a huge roll cloud over the beaches, I hope someone got photos of it.

That cluster heading your way across the BM's is holding its form quite well H. Your Lisa might be in for a HD on this assignment cool

Expecting to be caught in the dead area between the two here. wink

Decent sized storm just formed east of here in two frames of the radar. Amazingly quick convection. Just had a very loud crack of thunder out of the back end of it.

Yes 'roughy - I'm hoping it holds together for her Cat 5 report. smile

Homer.

I got a lot of thunder from that cell that suddenly popped into existence near Pymble (probably the one Homer saw) but the rain passed to the North. It seems to have been very lightning-active.

Another cell popped up just to my West at the front of the second line. Thunder and moderate to heavy rain has resumed.

Hahaha Homer, Orangeroughy and Stormyjim, it certainly was an interesting day to say the least. I got home at 5pm.

Me and 3 friends ended up riding from just NE of Stanwell Park (Bald Hill to be exact). When we got there at just before 10am it was beautiful, warm and sunny with a moderate NWer about 27-28C at a guess.

*Just a question has anyone riden from Bald Hill and along the Grand Pacific Drive, across the Sea Cliff Bridge to Austinmer?* It is such an awesome and fast ride along the windy road, albeit dangerous crazy

Anyway back to the story, we got to Woonona Beach (3kms north of Bellambi AWS) about 12:15 for a well earned swim!! It was still sunny though with mid level cloud to the south.

There was a moderate NEer by then and it was fairly cool but humid. We stayed there for a while where we noticed it had completely clouded over by 1pm but there was still no southerly!!

We left at 1:30 and were keen to get a feed at Chickos in Wollongong. At about 2:15 as we were going into the Gong, the scumtherly finally came and it came tearing through!!!

We were at Chickos eating by 2:30 and I started hearing thunder and looked to the south and saw a storm front and eventually lightning. So I checked the radar and there was a big storm heading for us!!

We finished our food as some big flangs came down and the light rain started. As we left Chickos to go home, there was absolutely torrential rain and very strong winds.

For 20 minutes we were riding in the heaviest rain I have ever rode in along with gusty winds and huge bright flashes with loud, crackling thunder. Finally just after we got out of Coniston it quickly cleared and we were stuck with cloud and a strong headwind to ride into.

It was actually such a memorable experience riding in a decent storm. You guys should try some day!!! smile

Then from then on it was cloudy and windy until we were in Unanderra where there was light rain almost all the way to home along with a few rumbles. My friends should have listened to me when I said to bring a raincoat!! And don't you worry, I rubbed it in big time to them. laugh

What a spectacular start to Autumn!!! smile
