    We have had some deep thunder here tonight, including just now, despite not being near anything of note.

    It's been a mild, overcast morning, with a couple of brief sunny breaks, after a warm night. The cloud is clinging to the coast at this stage. It breaks up West of about Blacktown.

    Here's the local satellite view a little while ago, showing cloud spiralling into a weak low off Sydney:

    A nice storm has developed over the southern Central Tablelands this afternoon. It has black in it, so more hail.
    Not sure that it will make it into the Basin, but the anvil certainly has. It appears to be heading more NNE towards Katoomba and Blackheath in the last few frames.
    @Steve777 Fascinating sat pic.

    Well, the BOMs Sydney forecast is already wrong. "Partly cloudy" it said at 4.20 pm, for the remainder of Saturday. Lol.
    Showers building and heading through the west and south west suburbs.
    No update as yet. Must be dinner - meal time break.

    Rain starting here, light but it's not the lightest anvil rain so I was a little surprised. Doesn't look like it'll stick around at this stage.

    Light rain here as well, with a few moments of light to more moderate rain.
    Dinner is over at the BOM. Forecast updated at 6.25 pm with the chance of a light shower.

    Chance of a light shower. Lol.
    Moderate rain here now with decent sized drops.
    At 4.20, we were told that it would be "Partly Cloudy". Looks like a vast area of the Metro will get more than just "Partly Cloudy".
    It won't be a lot of rain, but it will be way more than what they a forecasting in real time.
    I've had around 20 mins of light, steady rain with big drops so far.

    *edit* Just heard a rumble as well.

    Raining quite nicely here again. Definitely heavier than before. Heavier side of light rain as it can be heard from inside.

    Grandpa oh and computer programmer too.
    The rain and now warmer temps in Canberra means flowering plants are in full bloom. That means bee keepers are run off their feet as hives produce more queens going off to setup new colonies. Like in our front yard where they settled into the apricot tree. Luckily a bee keeper was able to come within the hour on a Saturday and shook the bees and queen into a big cardboard box.


    Then he had to head across town to where another new hive was within a wall cavity before coming back for the box.

    Early telltale signs this morning indicated the potential for instability today. As long as any major cloud cover holds we could be in for a chance today.

    Some very nice development happening on the Blue Mountains.
    I noticed the cu's in their early stages while I was out about an hour ago and crossed my fingers and toes.
    You can all thank me later. :)

    Brief light rain here - cell went from orange/red to cyan in the space of one frame to next.

    Not a particularly photogenic looking sky, either.

    Yep, this arvo has been a bit of a let down but so be it.
    I should have crossed a few more body parts. :)
    About 10 minutes of light rain and 1 minute of really big drops.
    Can't win 'em all.

    I was expecting it to be warmer today, given that it was sunny until near mid-afternoon. Instead, the forecast was about right for the coast and way over for the West. The car thermometer showed 27-28°, dropping to 24° over the Harbour Bridge.

    Here’s some mamatus over Clovelly around 3:00 PM. There was a pleasantly cool breeze, not a sea gale.

    Its more like a squall line now.

    I wonder if it will make it to the basin?

    Just copped it sweet here in Bungendore with peak rain rate ~50 mm/hr and winds gusting probably around 80-90 km/h. Reports of flash flooding in Queanbeyan CBD. Temperature has dropped to 12C from about 19.5 before the squall line.

    Bad timing for the radar to go down as the squall line moves towards the basin.

    edit: looks like its back up again.

    Not looking particularly good if you were hoping for some rain to top up the garden. :(

    Unless it manages to organise or there is a bit of a decent rain band behind.

    Detailed one for Sydney doesn't mention large hail. So im guessing its mainly for the western part of the squall line near Forbes.

    System appears to have struggled with the heavy cloud cover today. Moisture has been there but cloud cover has been detrimental just as I suspect it was yesterday. :mad:

    Bit of a let down if you wanted some H2O prior to the upcoming heat. :(

    Today was a bit of a disappointment. From hot with storms in the forecast a few days ago to dreary grey with periods of light rain and temps in stuck in the low to mid 20s all day. I don’t know what the BOM thought was going to push the temperature up to 29-33° today. It was clear from the satellite picture this morning that thick cloud was going to stick around all day.

    It’s just started raining lightly again.

    A clearing edge is coming into view in time for sunset. If things go well sunset might prove photogenic, unlike the rest of today.

    Got a nice 10mm in Wollongong overnight. It was surprising since no rain was forecast. There's still a big dark cloud overhead, but it's not looking especially threatening for the moment.

    That makes it around 62mm for the month, which is disappointing and well bellow average, but not as bad as it could've been. It's been the fourth driest month of this year after April, June and September.

    It was a cloudy morning, with the cloud breaking up around 2:00 PM to a sunny afternoon. It didn’t rain in Sydney but there were showers in the Illawarra as Derider reported.

    We’re going for some major heat to end Spring and start Summer. The models show 850 temps in the range 22-24° over Sydney on Saturday morning. Forecast highs Nov 28-Dec 1:

    Sydney: 33, 39, 25, 29
    Parramatta: 39, 39, 25, 35
    Penrith: 41, 42, 29, 40.
