Storms have been ongoing throughout Victoria over the past couple of days spreading into NSW. Some interesting pulse cells developed with some impressive anvil shields due to deep convection. Temperatures in the upper levels at anvil level have been rather cooler than I have seen it for many years. So the lapse rates in the upper portion of the atmosphere have allowed for some rapid development including the odd overshoot on pulse cells even. This has also enhanced the conditions for hail development once storms can tap into the upper atmosphere. Mid level temperatures have also been rather cool warming up yesterday as the ridge strengthened. We'll see what happens over the next several days. At least moisture is no issue from now on. Sydney and the North Coast should be in the firing line over the coming days.
