Storms Eastern NSW 14th March 2013

surface_lifted_indexThere is the chance of storms today in central eastern NSW. It is only a low chance but the storms will likely drifted northwards once they develop given the directional shear and velocities depicted on the hodographs. Surface Lifted Index values are probably enhanced by the fact moisture should be injected and fed inland.gfs.stormcast-sounding.bsch.init-2013031312z.fcst-2013031406.lat_-32.78_lon_150.07_custom-tdp_hodo-off

We will see where storms will develop and if they do persist, what direction they will flow and the regions affected! Not anticipating much personally. This morning did look somewhat a little unsettled though.
