    And during that it seems as though the sea breeze was pushed back which enabled Obs Hill to crack the elusive 31C mark!! 31.6C the max recorded at 4:32pm.

    Strong sun here and very warm again.

    Heavy rail, no hail around Whale Beach. Friend at Terrey Hills got smashed by hail not long ago.

    Edit: Southerly running into the basin / southern suburbs of Sydney now.

    Still popping east of the Shire, too little too late for most it, won’t make much difference IMO.

    Wouldn’t worry too much, it’s pretty much deteriorated. That Pymble-Northern beaches cell was an atomic bomb, not much outside that though.

    Small hail to 1cm in Newcastle.

    Big storm rolling through the area between Kurri and Wallsend, lucky there isn't much through there, it would be dropping big stones

    The hail was a bit soft with that one, it didn’t hurt to be out in it covering the car, and there wasn’t a lot of thunder with it. So it was a bit unusual like that.

    An impressive cell grafting its way through the Hunter, sliding left

    I'm in Husky atm.
    I noticed development starting around midday overhead and to the west and north. It was at that point I knew there'd be nothing happening here.
    I went for a 2 hour walk around the area from 12.30 "to keep an eye on the sky".
    The skies to the south remained absolutely clear the whole time, until the scud rolled in about 2 hours after the southerly hit at about 2 pm.

    Impressive amount of vertical shear and CAPE at the passing of the front through the Sydney, Illawarra coast (offshore) tomorrow night (7-10pm).
    Prime for Funnels & Spouts. Would not want to be in a tub on the Tasman tomorrow night.

    Early cloud has broken up to another warm, humid, sunny day in Sydney, with a few fluffy white cloud# about, left-over marine layer. It’s about 25-27° across Sydney, with OH leading the pack at 27.6°.

    The forecast doesn’t seem to like the chances of storms this afternoon. We’ll see what happens (or doesn’t).

    Here’s a webcam picture (https://webcamsydney.com/) of storm clouds developing South of Sydney around 5:00 PM yesterday afternoon:

    Buladelah to Dorrigo might explode in the next 3-4 hours IMO.

    Meanwhile this home grown high cloud is thickening around Sydney and starting to get very annoying.

    Dammit, I was hoping to sit out on my back deck with a beer and watch the show! Ah well. Though the sea breeze is much appreciated as it blows straight through my east-facing house...

    There's another one inbound. Not convinced it'll make it either though.

    Not looking real good from my vantage point, sea breeze is quite cool, the sky has filled with anvil junk with some mammatus thrown in too.
    This pick is looking towards Bulahdelah, Dungog more to left of pic.

    Ok a few pics from last nights awesome lightshow. And funny enough we somehow missed getting a direct hit, only 1.2mm fell, it was probably a only a matter of a couple hundred metres to be fair, Nelson Bay may have scored more rain. Most of the lightning was out to sea as the storms moved ever so slowly north-east.
    Flicking through the photos that I have taken there seemed to be a bit of rotation, if I get some free time I may put them in a time lapse.

    Great pics! It sure was a fantastic son et lumiere show last night. Not mutch rain at Shoal Bay. Sat on the unit balcony and watched awestruck for ages as storm moved north up the coast. I wonder where all the energy came from to cause that amount of lightening lasting for hours. It's not as if it has even been very hot at all?

    Nice southerly just hit Bodalla, Merimbula 14c but Moruya airport 22c, expect that to drop rapidly shortly.

    The beautiful thing with a change in upper levels, a lot of moisture and wind shear.
    Whilst thermal heating is a key component in TS activity, it's not a fundamental ingredient.
    We are at the envy of all the SE QLD & Nor-Coasters this Summer - it's been unique set-up for Storm activity in NSW.

    On the North Bondi Coastalwatch camera you can see lightning from the cells about 200 km offshore. Amazing how far storms can be viewed over the ocean.

    So as we know the new Obs Hill site is warmer in sea breeze conditions.

    Yesterday it trailed the airport by 0.8C (28.9 v 28.1) in a NEer. Today it’s 2.0C ahead in an ESEer

    Just come back home to the Hunter Valley, after a week in Tamworth.
    Hot and humid up there, and similar here.
    Maximums are being reached after 4:30pm, which is typical of summer, but more so in dry periods.
    Still hovering around 28C outside, going for 30C tomorrow, after an overnight low of 13C - which is below average.

    Picture post-card day, is the apt description. After that run of 2 weeks of gloom such a nice change, the lack of humidity caught me absolutely off-guard negative dew points from 1 to 4pm. Looks like a possible 40 degrees in the west between the 23 to Australia day. Shocking but welcomed that we're talking about 1 Western Sydney 40 this January.
