Just thought I'd share with you a few images that my Mum took on the 8th October at Mountaintop near Nimbin. I've copy/pasted an email I sent to Jimmy. I'd like to open a discussion on what the images represent as they do look rather suspicious to me.
Just thought I send you these interesting images taken from my parents house near Nimbin on 8th oct 2011 for analysis. Certainly looks like a very suss feature to me. First pic seems to indicate a wall cloud of sorts. There is a nipple like protusion to the right of the funnel like feature. Unfortunately my Mum was unable to get video as she had flat batteries.....however I've since drummed into her the importance of having fully charged batteries at all times lol. Unfortunately the Bris radar doesn't have archived images for that time so determining whether there was rotation via Doppler is out of the question.
Anyway look forward to your response as this is quite an interesting feature in my opinion.
I live in North East NSW and storm chasing is my main hobby. I only started chasing about 4 yrs ago and now regularly team up with Michael Bath and Rodney Wallbridge to sample the worst weather Mother Nature can throw at us. I'm currently 36yrs old and married ( 9yrs) and have two beautiful children. Any weather phenomenon is of interest to me and I'm constantly on the lookout for the next interesting weather system coming my way.
