Temora Storm Complex 27th November 2017

A few of the higher resolution pics of the Temora storm complex from SW of Temora today. A line of convergence occurred near Narrandera. These literally took off as we passed under them. The main core was further south so we took note of its structure. After some time I noted that the precipitation was persistent and we decided to check it out. This lead to the main chase. Consolidated base and inflow outflow interaction. Lightning caused a grass fire with thin plume rising under the updraft. Unfortunately we had to head back and leave a long lived storm complex go!

Bendigo supercell

Started the day from Sydney and ventured all the way until busy Bendigo. Storms already firing down near Ballarat, we headed south as a just in case scenario. We eventually ventured further north to west of Bendigo. Here we watched radar indicated splits further north. Fortunately, cells developed and exploded just to our west. These supercells formed great structure and hailed upon us! We made our way north to Kerang passing other cells and seeing some interesting structure albeit briefly before CIN increased and storms became elevated. We did get blasted by the cell with hail to gold ball size - branches were down.

West of Bendigo and then up to Kerang by sunset!

Luddenham Hailstorm

Luddenham was the base for a storm chase resulting in a hailstorm. This severe storm dumped its hail over the St Clair and Colyton region resulting in a severe storm warning for the area. The storm developed from a combination of outflow from the storms new Badgerys Creek NW winds and the sea breeze triple point. Hail to the size of 1.5cm were reported from this storm for up to 20 minutes.
