    That phase 2 is just about to hit Gulf St Vincent. The radar tilt is't quite picking it up, but it's crimson red as it enters the radar scope!

    Those black cored storms are smashing up the Eyre peninsula pretty badly from what I'm hearing.

    Was just getting a report from the wife in Adelaide and checking out the weather around Cleeve in the process.

    Glad I'm not doing the old Ceduna freight run this evening.

    @04 UTC western edge of the storm was 40kts= 83/km's sustained wind at the 'surface' and still intensifying.
    back end of the low has the bite, much worse is still to come.

    Albany newspaper FB page has a pic of snow on Bluff Knoll Wednesday. As to how low the snow level will be in NSW, Bom was going for 800m 2 days ago, then 900m and today it's up to 1000m in both Snowies and CTs..... W

    A weather bomb is when pressure drops 24 millibars in 24 hours, Kadina in SA has dropped 27 points since yesterday afternoon and Adelaide has had a 24 mb drop in 24 hrs - look out SA!!

    Not quite. Definition is of measurement taken from central pressure of the cell, not from a particular station.
    Not saying it's not a WX Bomb (yet), models had progged it close to a 24hPa drop, but nothing official.

    Round 2 for Adelaide is impressive on the radar. Lots of purple and a bit of black.

    If I was in Adelaide, I would be getting my car undercover. That is some damaging hail incoming for sure!

    83 km/h gusts in Ceduna and getting windier. Hectic.

    Nullabor had 100 km/h gusts earlier on.

    You see black very rarely, so a bit of excitement and horror at the same time.

    Suggestions that the radar is overestimating rainfall rates in this system. The actual amount that has fallen so far tends to justify that skepticism.

    Agreed, by the look of that pineapple that passed ADL mid-morning today I would've said 20-30mm easily. Duration looks normal so maybe the radar calibration as you say.

    The Adelaide radar always does that. Often lots of orange and red and small totals. Something is off with the calibration and has been for quite some time.
