Haha It's true Michael I never miss a local event unless I'm working pretty much. Interesting about your obvservations regarding the frequency of offshore storms. They seem fairly common during the autumn months in particular. I think this is because we seem to be in a transitional zone as you say. We have a good combination of warm sea temps in the autumn months and get just enough of the cold air pushing up from the south importantly also as you say is the topography, we're lucky to have quite high mountains right down to the coast, I think this is important as we don't need much instability at all to kick off convection and combine that all together and we have a pretty good mix for these types of events.
