What a spectacular start to the last month of summer smile RP, you've got some ticker mate!

I actually copped a decent storm at home today, which took out the power for a couple of hours (wires down apparently). A buster worthy of the title, more a late spring style setup today imo.

Also one of those days where the Illawarra was shielded from the hot NW winds whilst the Sydney Basin wasnt, again more a late spring phenomenon than late summer.

Winds were with no doubt about 80-90kmph when the southerly hit, got one half decent bolt, looking forward to what the go pro reveals!!

Dave- Thanks for your comment re my bike ride. smile

Jim- It was pretty funny actually. When my friend said "Far out now I have to use my towel as a raincoat" Then I said "Lucky I don't have to do that" One of my other friends then said "I hope your rainjacket gets a hole in it". Twas funny. All in a days fun. smile


Bear- Cheers mate smile , I'm guessing you've got some ticker means along the lines of "your a daredevil", "You've got no fear etc". Someone please correct me if I'm wrong- I have never heard that word used in that context lol.

Anyway, it is still rather breezy here with a southerly. It will make for a lovely cool sleep. Also it is interesting to note that we may have never got storms in this area if the southerly came at the anticipated time of about 12pm. It came after 2pm. That extra two hours could have made all the difference. smile

PS: I have just noticed that I have topped 2000 posts now. Far out, I'm an addict!! A weatherzone forums addict. crazy smile
RP.

That's all right DaveM, any time, feel free!! lol

First storm approched form the west, probably about 20 minutes or so before the southerly hit, i tried all afternoon to stay sober enough to drive to a better location around town to capture the southerly moving up the coast, but that was unlikely to happen.
Anyway this first storm pretty well developed on my door step producing some brilliant clear CGs from a highish RFB, i missed capturing some of the best bolts due to being mesmerised by having a storm on my doorstep, at this stage i set the GoPro up on the fence facing the south hoping to catch the odd bolt and the guster moving up the coast. At this stage the first storm was above me and heading out to sea, First and only half decent bolt captured looking east, i estimate the bolt being only 300 - 400 metres away

At this stage i totally forgotten what was moving up the coast, luckily i still had the Gopro going and it was also at this stage, well im hoping it caught a couple of close CGs within 200 metres or so, still downloading the footage.
So i ran to the south side of the house hoping i had'nt missed the guster and i did'nt really miss to much.
A little bit of greenage!!

Starting to look a little mean

Nearly caught a good close CG, at this stage the southerly was just about above me!!
192 by grouter75, on Flickr

Anyway it will be a day or two with the footage, as i have the slowest computer going.

Oh by the way, i'm still that excited, i've run out of beer poke LOL

19.2mm fell from the storm.

Awesome work Eddy, huge bolts and nice greenage/structure. That Bulahdelah cell would've been the dream storm to be on, assuming you had a view through the thick forest. Definite candidate for a supercell that one! Great work to every one else as well, the regular updates are fantastic. And thanks to the people who commented about my sunrise photos, cheers smile

Today I chased to Bowral, then Camden.. We saw 3 separate storms, 2 of which were severe... We observed our first storm from Mount Gibraltar lookout near Mittagong.. This storm was nicely organized for a good 30 minutes with a nice persistent rippled base and very heavy rain/hail core and a nasty looking microburst (pic 1) This storm weakened, however another lot of storms developed overhead in Mittagong delivering hail approaching 2cms,and 70km/h winds.
We raced north following these storms, and witnessed the structure of another storm just south of Camden. The base of this storm was lower and had some nice shape to it. It also appeared anchored for a good 10minutes (pic 2) , with an explosive updraft directly above it A thick white hail shaft and associated rain foot followed, and this created the 102km/h gust to Campbelltown. We saw plenty of large branches down in Camden from this cell. The storm seemed to develop on the boundary of the strong southerly change.
Storm 3 was pretty disorganised, more a line of cells merging together. The structure from this was uninspiring however we got a few strong staccatos (pic 3) from this, and some more gusty winds. Michael Keene

Great pics Mkeene, nicely done. You must be one of the most committed stormchasers around these days!!

Anyway, it is cold this morning, like really cold and crisp. Considering there are DP's of 11-12C around the Illawarra and there is dew and no wind here, I would probably say that the current temp would have to be about 13C or 14C. Also it's beautiful and clear with no cloud, although I think it will be one of those days where low cloud covers the sky by 9am or 10am.

PS: Cooma Ap is sitting on just 1C!!! crazy This feels like Autumn in every respect.

Obs Hill has finally fallen below 20C this morning with a minimum of 18.2C. Yes more autumnal than I expected this morning, most of the week will see DPs a little lower than of late. Slowly moving towards autumn, but not there yet (not even in Bx).

Great captures Michael and Eddy, there were certainly some mean gusts around with the stronger cells. Here, the southerly change just beat the storm but they would have fed off each other I suspect, creating the damaging (power cutting) wind gusts here. I note the WZ story quoted 109 km/h at Cronulla.

Thanks SM, Steve777, Ping & DB, plus nice pics and report Ping!!
20.2mm in the 24hrs to 9am, which was certainly welcome.
Did a drive around Hawks Nest, plenty of small debris about, nothing major though.
Just had a look at my footage, got a couple of closish bolts.

Lovely photos all!! LOVE the greenage!!

Cooma pretty much got to zero this morning as SM noticed - well spotted!! Much cooler than here, about 12 or maybe 11 here this morning. Probably cooler tomorrow morning. smile

Given the strength of the cold change on Wed/Thurs (snow on Tassie peaks) really surprised they have it so hot for here over the weekend, 30+ degrees!! Looking at the red line in the models, I would expect more like low to mid 20's but 30? Hope not - officially sick of the heat now, It's Autumn it's usually cooler than this by now. We've our share (plus everyone elses) of the damn heat this year. smile

At least a couple of cooler nights coming up. smile

Amazing how cool Cooma can get in these marginal changes, though it's in a great spot for cold air damming (as is the town site). Topography also plays its part of course, the Monaro is as close as Australia gets to a Rocky Mountains high desert climate. Will have to get a pic of both next time I'm down that way, should be over Easter...unless Homeboy wants to beat me to it.

Bx is a long way from Tassie as you know, any airmass will warm quickly once it hits the big island. Cool nights are the main impact of those early cold changes this far north.
