Although I forecasted the storms for today, I didn't bother paying too much attention to the chasing. Npot even the developing convection took my fancy over the mountains. It was not until I monitored the storms on radar that I saw the storm near Bowra...
Apparently a Tropical Low East of Darwin Has developed. There is the possibility of a Tropical Cyclone developing but GALES are not expected in coastal areas within the next 24 hours, however gales could develop later.
Lets See what it does over the next few days.
Perth suffered devastation after the worst storm hit the region in 50 years. Hailstones up to about 6cm in diameter driven by powerful winds to over 100km/h smashed car windscreens as well as solar panels and windows of homes across the northern suburbs of Perth. Although the rain was welcome breaking a 104 day dry spell, flash flooding caused chaos to traffic and added to the damage of some homes. The Insurance Council of Australia says claims have already exceeded $200 million mark.
