Whilst all eyes are on Owen the little low near Flinders reef has crept towards us. Nice little circulation on the high res satellite and appearing on the radar now. If we're lucky enough to have it reach the coast it could be a wet night

BOM aren't really interested in it though, they don't seem to think it will have an impact rainfall wise. The radar tends to support this at the moment. Here it is on the visual sat image, heading steadily West:

Was watching that line of storms approaching from your west,- looked very impressive but now starting to break up a bit.

A very common occurrence here in Cns, where the escarpment chomps them up before they get here.

Big storm just rolled through Ayr, big thunder & lighting show heavy rain & lost power at the start. Cool breeze now so that good. Old Queenslander about 1.5m off the ground so hits nearby could really feel vibrations from ground up
