Grafton Supercell with extraordinary lightning: 12 November 2011

What a day Saturday turned out to be after some very ordinary early cells (apart from the Thora hailstorm which Jason Paterson and I couldn't see due to low cloud).

Thought it would be hard to beat what we saw on 30th Oct but ...

The structure of the supercell that tracked from near Armidale over Nymboida and into Grafton late afternoon/early evening was impressive, but the lightning was just amazing!!

It went nuts very close to us at this point - Jase will have some more.

This thing almost hit the car - I was pointing the camera out the windscreen while Jason was driving - Southgate area.

Then some more big bolts from Lawrence.
