    Solid storms through Darwin last night, around 120mm at the Marrara site near us.

    A few shots.

    Yeah some of that stuff sounded like a damned plane crash every time they struck.

    You can see the intensity of the rain in this shot where lightning turns night to day.

    Nope....three fifths of five eights of f*ck all.....
    Oh, maybe once every 2 or 3 years you might hear a report of slight pea size hail from the inland suburbs of Darwin.
    I think I've personally seen small hail here 3 times in 40 years.

    I suppose you need upper cold pools and they don't usually venture up that way. Would be nice to chase photo opportunities without worrying about a car being dented.
