Had a short chase this afternoon with Michael Bath and Rodney Wallbridge where some weak cells were creeping into the Northern Rivers. There was some nice structure at times but didn't really deliver in the severe category. Outflow features were mostly prominent, however due to the high moisture content in the lower atmosphere there was some "interesting" scud formations which made for some nice photography.
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.
