As they say ,," Its tuff at the top" . those days I dont miss..
And the storm ! From a mate in the suburb next to mine.....
"26.8mm of rain in 20min with a top rain rate of 272mm/hr here in the Wagaman Wetlands and still getting smashed. 30.8mm now."
Fair dinkum filthy outdoors today ! ( although I've just had a reasonable shower pass over....13mm of rain cooled things a bit but the bastard sun is out again....
Really was a pig of a day outdoors....
'Feels' like 39.2c ? like hell ! Felt like 139.2 !!
Solid storms through Darwin last night, around 120mm at the Marrara site near us.
A few shots.
Jeez the lightning was that close you could hear and smell it before you saw the flashes.....and some of the loudest thunder !!
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.
Suss out the conditions at Charles Point ( south west coast from Darwin ) yesterday
Looks like most the 'burbs got a good drop outta those storms last night.
Good drop of rain again this evening from another late storm tracking over town.
I was in the carpark at Cazalys ( Sunday roast only $17.50 )
Do you get much hail up your way?
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.
We wait the whole season for a day like this ! Full overcast, damp drizzle ( rained all morning for 2mm since 9.00am ).
And a cool damp 26c at noon ! Fanbloodytastic !
