Meredith VIC Supercell and other storms 9th November 2011

Looks like an impressive classic V shapped supercell that Meredith in Vic just got battered with 19:15 on 9/11.

64km Radar Loop for Melbourne, 05:00 09/11/2011 to 11:00 09/11/2011 UTC



  • Hi Scott,

    I believe there was one and possibly a second supercell. The storm raced across the bay in half an hour! What incredible speed! Nice structure of the first supercell though. Any pictures from anyone down there?

  • Storms evaded us today when it all seemed to begin to take off during the mid-afternoon. It was downhill from there – I guess the issue with a upper level ridging. Thanks to Nick Moir for driving me around.

    Yesterday afternoon I managed to get out and intercept one of the cells that affected Melbourne around 18:30 hrs, 09.11.11.
    Positioned myself just south of Melton and had the cell pass just to the south of me.
    The structure was incredible, huge rain and hail core, breif mid-level funnels and mesocyclone. Managed to take about 60-70 shots of the structure. I will get some of the pics up over the next day or so.

    Cheers All.

  • Hi Chris,

    I look forward to the images. Which storm did you intercept – the first or second storm?

    Was the storm relatively low topped?
