    I am in the Main Range tomorrow and it's gonna cook. 850mb temps are amazing for Nov.
    13ºC minimum, heading for 24ºC (at 850mb!)

    A perfect early Summer day - in the old money 60-80°F in Sydney, with blue skies, jacarandas and cicadas. Sea gales came along later.

    By my inexpert reading of the models the remainder of the month looks quite warm. The 28-29th looks very hot in EC and ACCESS although that’s a way off yet.

    But I think that La Nina will come roaring back soon after. Hot and wet like 2010-11 or cool and wet like 2011-12 - we’ll see. Maybe December will be stormy as in 2014 and 2011.

    Steve777 please don't mention December 2011. It was so evil that just mentioning its name is enough to summon it back like the devil.

    A few small storms have popped up on the radar, to the north of Sydney.
    Quite lightning active too.

    Clear blue skies, warm, sunny with light breezes, another beautiful day.

    Badgerys Creek is back, showing just under 30°, consistent with other stations in Sydney’s outer West.

    I was wondering if Olympic Park had caught the bug, however, being way ahead of the pack or 34° just now, although Bankstown is close behind at 33°, so maybe it is just hotter there.

    The sea breeze was up and running on the coast by 9:00 so OH will struggle to reach its forecast, but there might be some mixing down.

    The last 3 runs of ACCESS-C shows a heavy cell directly impacting the city between 2-5pm with anywhere up to 60mm possible, its even predicted the current cells near Gosford on its 18z run. Lets see how we go!

    Not a single cloud around currently. Could just see the tops of the storms near Gosford. Hope some convection happens soon.

    Edit: Some decent convection towards my north. So wouldnt be suprised if a storm pops up soon near NW Sydney.

    I was just about to say the same thing! We are both looking at the Wisemans Ferry cell (shot taken at Pymble).

    The Wisemans cell is decaying on radar a bit and I can see mammatus now so it doesn’t seem to like being nearer to the coast

    I'm a lot closer to that cell and it looks great from here, except it is disappearing into the distance. :(

    I'm watching that little cell near Camden. Doesn't seem to be able to get going.
    Stranger things have happened though.

    Wisemans is sustaining more on radar than I thought. Very happy to be proven wrong!

    38.4c here in Castle Hill.
    I've been outside a few times in the past hour or so and it really didn't feel that hot so you are right about the humidity and lack thereof.

    Hearing some rumbles here at the moment.
    Not sure if they are coming from the south or the north!!

    Edit - definitely the southern storm, which is growing.

    Yeah, that Terry Hills HR might be about to be extinguished. Some black blobs heading that way.

    Luckily is escaped the humidity here it certainly was weird to see those elevated dew points in the Western Suburbs. I wasn't spared the heat with a high of 36.9 degrees, although as i look at obs seems there's a late surge in humidity with Dew points now 18.8 degrees.

    Finally saw a on-road temperature of 40 cracked although it spiked to 42 degrees at one point, i think we now get to the point of sunlight management (how much we allow into our houses).

    Wow this CG lightning is close - I’ve had to put ear muffs on.

    Rain has settled down a bit for now.

    Close flangs here now. Spectacular. Not much rain here yet. I'm just to the north of it. Oops, spoke too soon. It has just started to bucket down!!
    Just spoke to my 17 yo daughter who is driving with a friend and said hail has covered lawns where she is and it looks like it has snowed. Cherrybrook.
    Just rang my son 18 yo and told him to put his newly acquired car in the garage. Castle Hill.

    We skirted the southern side. Some small hail but not enough to worry the car on the street under a couple of picnic blankets. Could be another round - this is the view to the SW.

    Good storm here in Stanhope Gardens, it started off as dry extremely lightning active. We had a very close strike that made the house alarm control beep like crazy. Lightning pro estimated the strike to be in Acacia Gardens less then a Km away.

    We have had torrential rain 12.2mn, with peak rain rates of 40mm per hour, a few pea sized hail pieces, and wind gusts of up to 40.4km per hour.

    The stormed dropped the temperature by 12’c.

    Is there a reason it seems more than not
    Storms seem to skirt past northern beaches and sydney and track north or south more ? Maybe it’s just me imagining it but we hardly ever get a direct hit here (curl curl)

    keen to do some research and learning if a scientific theory behind it.

    There are loads more CG strikes occurring here than Lightning.org are showing on their maps. I wonder why that is?
    Anyway, that was a ripper!! A true (almost) summer thunderstorm. Torrential rain. A little bit of hail here. So many close flangs with window rattling thunder. There was no wind associated which was good.
    The development was explosive once it got going. It took its time this afternoon, but once it decided to kick off, it didn't hold back.
    For once, I was in a sweet spot.
    And, it has cooled down nicely after a high of 39.2. Currently 24.5c.

    That view to my south continues to look super interesting. Incoming on Kurnell.

    Anyone with a better vantage point, a better camera and/or more skill will be getting some great shots of this structure.

    The storm this afternoon was very concentrated.
    20 mm's at West Pennant Hills was the best. Next was 12 at North Rocks. Hornsby got 7, Turramurra 5 and Baulkham Hills 7, and Kings Langley 7.
    There was some similarly 5-7 mm falls out west.
    I was in between all these totals so I reckon we got about 10 mm's over the hour but with most of that falling in about a 20 min period.
    The rumbles have just subsided in the past half hour.
    There's still some random development happening, although I don't expect too many more surprises.

    There were some interesting cloudscapes and distant rumbles here but that was it. All the action passed to the West and North. These storms died as they neared the coast, the sea breeze being suspect Number 1.

    The sun’s back out. I note that the Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been extended to the coast, so maybe something will pop up later but I’m not hopeful.
    Here’s the view looking North around 4:00 PM. The Chatswood CBD is in the foreground:

    Maybe I was wrong. Starting to hear rumbles again from the cell that has quickly popped up near Penrith.

    Thankfully no one was seriously injured but should serve as a warning that despite almost nil odds it can happen.
