Supercell - Lightning hits tree

Lightning hits tree. This is a longer version of the 3rd December 2016 Kyogle to Beaudesert Supercell. It was requested to me to provide a full account of the supercell from NSW through to Queensland. So I have put together a more in depth account of the chase beginning from Kyogle and on to areas north of Kyogle. Finally a better edit of the intense phase in Queensland from over the border through to Rathdowney where giant hail was reported. Next a lightning fest on approach to Beaudesert.

lightning hit a tree near the road 10metres away and then another in the field (which was filmed)! Please enjoy in full screen, HD and sound turned up!

It was a spectacular storm in its large size and very active lightning observed as well as significant hailstones. The storm being slow moving allowed for the relatively rare opportunity to chase in New South Wales and southern Queensland.

Rain Event 16th December 2016

After an extended dry period with very little rainfall throughout the past few months, there is hope for some good soaking rainfall across parts of NSW and SW Queensland as a rain event develops. It seems a northwest cloud band is with in-feed of moisture along a change should provide the focus for storms and rainfall across the inland extending to the coast.

Rainfall amounts should be in the vicinity of 20 to 30mm across parts of the region including Sydney and the Central Coast with cooler conditions after such excessive above average heat. Great weather for the garden.
