Spectacular High Contrast Supercell Dungog to Booral 14th December 2018

Published by:

A long chase day today. Headed up to the eastern Hunter Valley had lunch and then the chase was on. First meeting up with Michael Thomas and Tejay. The first cell we intercepted near Dungog was the taster as a second cell developed nearby. This new cell literally developed and organised rather rapidly! It was only a few spots where we could stop to observe this supercell. I must say jaw dropping structure but also awesome contrast up close! This cell showed brief signs of rotation and then must have hit cooler air and weakened becoming elevated near Karuah.

The guys and I became disconnected after this and I intercepted the next cell near Stroud and I backtracked to Bulahdelah for some pretty structure. I ventured up the coast and intercepted another cell that briefly went severe near the coast and weakened.

It was on to Nabiac and Taree. the Taree cell allowed for an understanding of what had been happening during the day. S winds and its associated boundary met the northeast infeed. Although the storm remained elevated it was able to tap into this moist boundary. This storm produced some insane dangerous bolts as the storm intensified and headed towards the coast near or just north of Forster. This was a nasty core with hailstones but I could only see numerous pea sized hailstones. Strong winds and blinding rain with down trees was also a feature of this severe storm.

Severe Storms, Hail, Wind and Dust Parkes to Orange 13th December 2018

Published by:

Chased up to Parkes and then gradually got chased back. Overtook the line going through Orange at Bathurst . Got until hail 3 times but nothing sizeable. The rain though was very intense - dangerous conditions both in visibility and hydroplaning potential. And of course an intense mricoburst hit west of Orange near Molong and this put down a branch in front of my vehicle! It blocked the road but I was just able to go around it! Interestingly I had taken the precaution of looking for branches going given the strength of the winds and the tree lined road at that point. I was only about 200 metres within the tree region!

Quakers Hill and Schofields Hailstorm 26th September 2018

Quakers Hill and Schofields Hailstorm 26th September 2018

Hail pictures by Sarah Ninnes

With the axis of an upper trough to be stationed over Sydney and temperatures aloft of -22C, it wouldn't take much heating to get storm development. A rain band had produced rainfall over Sydney during the morning and lasted until at least late morning.

A brief clearing and it could be seen a band of cumulus were showing signs of development to the south and southwest. An area of convergence with NW winds meeting the southeasterly and northeasterly boundary was situated near Castle Hill. Although storms developed further south, an intense storm developed along this regional convergence tripe point and produced a swathe of hail across the Quakers Hill to Schofields region and the storm redeveloped northwest.

Unfortunately, the hail dumped over those areas and only moderate rain progressed beyond this region.
