The wind has come up very fiercely in Whyalla. But it dropped the temps by about 15 degrees in what felt like a handful of minutes.

43.6 to 32.1 in 20 mins, definatly significant.
result of a NW-SE shortwave surface trough moving
NE through the iron triangle.
had similar to here but not as pronounced.
good wind swing too, NW to S, temp drop amplified
coming off the water.
wind picked up around midday from a relativly light
morning breeze but really ramped up on the troughline
to average 60 gust 75 kmh.
good relief for the iron triangle from otherwise
blistering conditions.

Would be nice if we had a working radar. Pretty well the only service that BoM provides that I use and they manage to screw even that up. Getting pretty tired of dodgy radar coverage/holes through the middle of cells/entire frames missing at random intervals. Seems to happen with greater frequency during storm/rain events as well. Complete joke. Ever since that last 'upgrade' there's been nothing but problems.

Yeah, was surprised to see dropped frames that being totally clear frames whereas the previous frame had obvious rain events. Also frames in which the central area dropped out. What's going on?

sounds like they are running windows........

riverland looks to have done ok stormwise, would have
almost been worth chasing if i wasn't so demotivated.

Radar keeps switching between short and long pulse atm, I'd say it probably needs a part shipped and at this time of the year, that's gunna take time.

TS cool

Yeah TH talk about motivation. Had these storms been 60km south, would have cleaned up here. Jamestown to Spalding way had over a dozen individual high quality high based cells the last two nights. Saw some decent and very unusual stuff from Clare the other night as well, but pulling all nighters with hours of darkness between cells isn't exactly fun.

Mid North has had a very respectable season this spring/summer. Given last nights efforts, from a chasing perspective has been very nearly as good as 2016. The mid north has this awful habit of peaking for high based storms at stupidly early hours though making getting them an extremely exhaustive process.

Hi markus, yer one can suffer the opposite of SDS, known as
SOS...Storm Overload Syndrome. have suffered it somewhat myself
over the years on some big 24hr chases from SESA to Central Vic.
for me stormchasing is a bit like taking a dump, when you have't
had one for a while you're bustin' for one and when you've had
a good one its a while before you want another.
back then my enthusiasm was radiant and unwavering.
however things are different now, the black dawg has got me by
the throat and there's nothing i can do to make it let go.
maybe one day i'll be able to work up enough courage to make
it go away forever.
looks like an extended bout of classic mediterranian type
summer here for the short term future, mild to hot,
interjected by the odd clandestine scorcher.
with a bit of luck the storm band will play a tune worth
dancing to later this summer.

TH

Whoever asked Mother Nature to turn off the oven can you please get her to turn it back on so we can go back to the traditional marrow boiling temps and ball tearing nocturnal storms after a hot day as Im not a huge fan of this Mediterranean style weather

sorry RS, that was my fault, i wanted cooler temps for my
first week back at work. i'll put in a requisition to get
things back to normal for you but the paperwork mat take
a while to process. hopefully have something organised by
next weekend but at this stage no guarantees.

WiRA if you're referring to the current reflectivity
anomolies even though it's a long way away even the
curvature of the anomolies over YP point to the origin
as ceduna.
the usual barunga range anomoly associated with buckland
park is still lirking around.
