Storms NSW 23 December 2012


Storm near Penrith by Jimmy Deguara

There were a lot of interesting storms around New South Wales today. I managed to get out and shoot some amazing lightning from a cell over the Blue Mountains. I'll upload some images and video soon.

    The behaviour if the storm near Colo Heights yesterday was interesting. Did anyone chase / observe it? I was able to observe the storm along the same boundary to its south once it collapsed. Some high energy bolts and also a green tinge effect.

    I could not chase but after 6.30 pm, I went up to my favourite lookout at Bella Vista and took some video film of a storm to the south west. I have taken these photos from that video film.

    This storm south west of Sydney did produce some good lightning flashes, a mix of cloud to ground and anvil crawlers. I like this one.

    Its not often I capture three cloud to ground strikes in the one photo. The same storm produced this. The storm weakened soon after.

    I think we're gunna get some high energy bolts and flash flooding in Sydney very shortly, when I check the sounding just b4, looks like cells have the potential 2 reach around 13km, LI around -4.5. Alot of activity building 2 the SW of Sydney now.

    This is a compilation of all the lightning I videoed this day. About halfway through it really ramps up and unleashes a barrage of anvil crawlers!

    Jimmy, I’ll do a video of the best anvil crawlers and slow them down. I was shooting with a new video camera at 60fps so I got lots of detail in them.

    As promised, here is a slow motion video of the anvil crawlers from this event.
