Following a warm August day across much of Sydney where maximum daily temperatures peaked at between 24C and 26C including 25C around Blacktown, an evening thunderstorm passed over parts of Western Sydney.
This storm was unusual as it occurred during August and at around 9 pm (At least over the Blacktown region), well after sunset. Thunderstorms are relatively rare for the month of August but can occur.
This is sign of a transition in the seasons from winter towards spring.
The photos attached to this post were taken from my video using my small Canon Handycam camera. I successfully managed to catch 2 flashes from this event.
