Well Byron has had a nice storm

Severe storms sweeping through southeast Queensland
Sam Terry, Tuesday September 28, 2010 - 13:23 EST
Storms are firing up over southeastern Queensland, heading quickly to the coast and bringing potential for severe weather.

A Severe Weather Warning has been issued for the QLD Capricornia, Wide Bay and Burnett, Darling Downs, and Southeast Coast districts, and for parts of the Central Highlands and Maranoa and Warrego districts.

Already parts of New South Wales have been hit by the storms. Cape Byron was deluged with six millimetres in just ten minutes, enough to cause localised flooding.

In Queensland there are currently two storm cells with the potential to be severe. One is currently crossing the Sunshine Coast and heading offshore and the other is heading towards Beaudesert (south of Brisbane). So far there have been no reports of damage or severe features.

Keep checking the radar on weatherzone.com.au to follow the path of the storms.

I think you pick a bad time to go out. This came with the latest STW from BOM

Thunderstorms today have already produced wind damage (trees uprooted) and flash flooding at Beaudesert at around 1:30pm.

Hope you are OK

Thankyou for the concern :) we are ok in the end i looked outside saw it approaching and decided it was safer garaging the car and waiting it out, i got some pics i will post later on after this new storm threat has passed. We got pea sized hail at home very destructive winds and very heavy rainfall i forgot to shut windows on the south facing side of the house and as a result my bedroom is drenched as is my daughters toy room and her bedroom *insert blush here lol* at present the sky is nearly white in colour with constant rumbling hopefully this one isnt too severe as our place is already saturated and flooded in spots

*update: the second storm skirted us and headed into rathdowney with the BOM labelling it as a very severe storm. As i was watching it i took some pics while in town which i will post later and im sure i saw a interesting cloud shape like a funnel not too sure though and after this was when the BOM labelled it as a very severe storm

* Pics of the second storm that headed towards rathdowney i have zoomed in on the suspect shape i saw - had to zoom in as iphone isnt that great for pics. It was more funnel shaped before i found my phone and took the pics

After 60.3MM of absolute shocking Rain i must applaud the sky for its fantastic thunder cell.

There was indeed (small pea hail for 40 seconds 2 times) i wish i wish i had pix of them but mum was filming the flood with my cam our grass is now finally coming back. WAS plenty of CG action non stop.

The images are as follows

1)20 mins before hitting
2)10 mins before hitting
3) HITTING HARD
4) the END

Ballina AP had 59mm we had 60.3mm and im sure there was more where a station does not exist.
