Big CAPE again today for storms forming on the sea breeze boundary to work with. Rural areas in particular should see something but steer looks alright to perhaps get something into Darwin too.
Overall a big increase in storm activity over the coming days as instability steps up a notch to be more in line with what we should be seeing at this time of year.
Cells firing on the boundary now, not sure about severe but each to their own.
I'm a bit late to this thread but I have fond memories of Timber Creek. I lived there for about a year all up. Great place, back when both pubs were open. The Wayside inn was a great place. I spent more than one dawn watching the blood red sun shine on the escarpment ... with my beer in hand still at the bar.
Back then the Army had just bought Bradshaw from the McBeans, and I went over there a few times. Fantastic country, even better over the other side towards the Fitzmaurice River. Just stunning.
Brutal time of year now though!
Hector is alive and well.
Bit of activity around the Top end today...
I had to run over to Kununurra today to get a new hydraulic hose made up for our excavator...nice cool overcast day and raining when I got there, then a heavy rainstorm about 100klm east of the WA border.
@mannyk so was your fathers business on smith street by any chance?
Dad did have a small photo lab in Smith st later on but the main store was in Knuckey st opp, the post office.
Cheers i vaguely remember it near post office, def remember in Smith street, father was Joe?
Yep Dad was Joe. Bells camera shop was at the end of the mall, smith st.
The camera shop, which I worked in was in the Burnsphilp brick building on the corner of Smith st. Opp Woollies. His shop was just around the corner in Knuckey st.
thanks , I am all good now, should have chatted when i saw you in Myoko 2 years back , but i was too shy.
My son sent me a couple of pics of a storm cell approaching Acacia, NT
Check this out... !
Thats a shame, Im always up for a chat.
Massive storms all around Timber Creek last night....mostly to the south of us We had a bit of a light show in town but only a few mm of rain ..... ( sigh )
Surely the Northern Suburbs will get something out of this ?
Gunna be a filthy hot week .... ( sigh )
The 'build up from hell' continues with the temp topping 45c today out on our job....hot and dusty.
This morning was filthy ! Have a look at the DP's and humidity..... this was way more debilitating than yesterday's 45c
Then this arvo it warmed up and dried out a bit....
Will it ever rain in Darwin again?We have had no rain in Coconut Grove for nearly two weeks.Starting to get to me.
No rain anywhere else but at least were not suffering through the build up.
.Here on the GC my lawn is crispy crunchy.
Mango Madness Extremus.
Noisy old storm banging away just off the coast at the moment, managed to skip right over Darwin and bomb in the harbour
Top End active this arvo...
And Darwin has recorded its 10th straight day above 35c... a record for the Airport site.
And we have a noisy storm over Timber Creek atm.
Nice one mate, been up to that lookout many times before.
Rural storms going nuts again this afternoon.
Outflow dominant thing pushing over the harbour at the moment, strong winds ahead of it.
That is a classic Top End cracker !!
Noisy outside at Timber Creek atm....
The last 2 from my donga window....
Darwin Northern Suburbs missing out again ?
Not the northern suburbs.... lol !
SFA for Coconut Grove.Again!
Thunderstorms away early today, maybe even for the northern suburbs @Greysrigging
Though Leanyer seems to be firmly under that dome again!
Angry lightning out there
Ha... 35mm at home today according to my son ....yehar !!
sorry about that we got 65mm (Big cheesy grin).
The locals pretty happy with a drop of rain at timber Creek....
Fairly active inland at the moment, currently shooting lightning out on the AR floodplain and it's pretty non-stop but very messy. Linear rubbish.
Tough to get to any decent shots last night with smoke haze and low-level cloud junk ruining things. Floodplains mosquitoes the size of budgerigars always make for an enjoyable experience out there however

Small cell over Timber Creek this arvo after another 42c ( rounded ) day.
Noisy and sparky but bugger all rain in Timber Creek
Mowed the lawn in 35 degrees today But 42 freaks me out Dreaming of Myoko and minus 5.
Cooling little guster pushing past the northern burbs at the moment.
Another couple cells sliding in from the east this afternoon. Nothing to write home about though, small fast moving things.
Darwin this morning....
Very noisy storm over Timber Creek atm...and nasty looking lightning....
Outflow boundary from inland storms forced up some nice coastal activity this evening. Decent light show out there.

That was a cracker of a storm off Lee Point !
My son's pics.....
To give some NT perspective to the unprecedented heat torturing Australia atm.... the AWS at Tindal is running at 5.1c above the monthly average at 40.7c This is an incredible reading for a station so deep in the tropics at 14.5S of latitude !
And the next 7 days show some 43's and a 44c on Boxing Day in the forecast ! Already exceeded the previous Dec maximum temp 7 times this month !
