Northern Rivers Storms 29th October 2013 4

With the threat of potentially severe storms today, Rodney Wallbridge, Michael Bath and I went out and tried to catch mother nature at her finest. Early activity around 1pm provided a nice lightning show however this band of showers and storms would have a negative effect on further storm development as lingering cloud cover prevented  sufficient surface heating to help in the formation of organised storms.  One storm did manage to become organised just after 6pm in the Whiporie area and displayed severe characteristics for a while before weakening SE of Coraki. A stunning sunset display of mammatus clouds capped off an enjoyable afternoon. Here are my favourite pics from the day.

Storms widespread across eastern NSW 29th October 2013

eastern NSW storms lightning mapAn upper trough moving across NSW with a cold pool of air aloft led to the rapid development of widespread thunderstorm activity across eastern NSW today. Most of the intense activity seems to have been in the vicinity of Newcastle and the lower Mid-North Coast regions. Widespread storm activity also occurred in northeastern NSW and southeast Queensland with strong winds and hail the primary threats. Hail to the size of golf balls was observed in some locations of NSW with the more intense cells.
