Cooler change provides relief from heat

Published by:

I seem to have recovered from the long drives and heat of the last few days. The cooler change moved through yesterday and last night it was uncomfortably cool - such a contrast. But it made it easier to sleep. A few stratocumulus clouds this morning - well it seems now we have to await next week for more probable action storm wise.


Excellent storm chase 27th November 5cm hailstones!

Been out of action for the past couple of days but had an excellent storm chase on the 27th November. You can get a better description here

Today it seems like a hot start and then cooling down later I hope. I am on top of the world with that 5cm hail embedded in my brain!


Third night of storms and lightning chasing

Published by:

Very tired this morning after the third night of storm and lightning chasing. Didn't get home till 12.50am after Rodney and I were treated to an amazing display of lightning in the Clarence Valley. We had a beautiful spot beside the Clarence River at Lawrence - awesome !

This follows the amazing show on Sunday night and also Monday night !

Could be some more this afternoon and evening, though its going to be quite hot today - Lismore expected to hit 38. Profile suggests further south will be  better for storms.

Spoke to Jimmy a couple of times yesterday as he was chasing the southern Mid North Coast.
