  2. Hi Nick,

    Nice shelf cloud structure! Well done!

    We Jeff Brislane and I, were in that storm after getting hammered by the cell merger near Wollongong or more accurately Stanwell Tops region (a cell merger is where two cells merge and can either pass through un affected or they more often intensify rapidly). This cell merger rapidly intensified. We drove through about 7 minutes of hailstones with diameters of 1.5 to 2cm! The cloud to ground lightning was incredible there too! We also got some hail from the cell near Southerland.

    Pictures later.
