Spectacular Moree Sunset Supercell 19th December 2020

Published by:

Absolutely stunning supercell developed just prior to sunset as I was on the way back to my hotel! It rotated and split into a right mover and left moving supercell with this being the right mover and illuminated by the setting sun.

It produced hailstones to at lest 2 to 3 cm in diameter as the storm passed over head on dusk! It also produced beautiful lightning!

Just after the Southern Tablelands cell intensified it should interesting structure

Just after the Southern Tablelands cell intensified it showed interesting structure. The timelapse I guess confirms that too. Strong outflow pushes out in the timelapse. At the time of this photograph and just prior though, strong inflow raced in from the northeast!

Was it an outflow boundary from the the supercell now in Nowra? Or was it rapidly rising updraft not sure - https://youtu.be/qTcU5ckJ_fc Timelapse (yes I know it is heavily processed but I had to as the contrast at the time was not the best but the structure was evident)

This is time-lapse mostly of the Southern Tablelands storm. This then moved on. golf ball sized hail smashed Campbelltown after this. I was able to get there just in time. The second supercell followed shortly thereafter and that is time-lapsed also.
