Storms and Storm Chaser Discussion tornadoes storm chasing lightning storms thunderstorms

Possible chase though windshear not ideal!

Yesterday was a dud for weather up here. Brisbane sounding revealed extremely dry air above 900 - no wonder nothing formed, except one shower busted through near Bellingen about 4pm. Today the low level moisture is much better and I expect some scattered cells mainly on the Northern Tablelands.   Very likely to chase after I finish my morning work even though the shear is a bit dodgy.


Ridge persists decreasing chances of storms

Bit warmer and more humid today - at the surface at least. Looks more likely there will be some cells in the Dorrigo to Glen Innes region this afternoon.  The QLD ridge (QUIDGE) is poorly positioned and not bringing in deep low level mositure. The pattern is more typical of January I think when the quidge can shut down storms in coastal locations for a week or two.
