first 3 pics are of the first storm approaching, last 2 pics are as it moved away. I took these on my phone as i dont have a camera yet so excuse the quality. ( i cant post more than one pic at a time for some reason so excuse the multiple edits :) )

It was great to see some widespread storm action today - a lot more than I had forecast for today.  I wasn't able to chase but one of the stronger cells came right over my home from just before 4pm.  It's the same one Jason photographed in Lismore and Antonio in Ballina later.

We copped 50mm in 20 mins with a max rain rate of 290mm/hr. Hail got up to 1cm diameter during the second half of the deluge. It's probably the heaviest (in total) rainfall from one thunderstorm cell I can recall.

Early altocumulus castellanus



Early cells across the Nightcap ranges looked quite nice when it crossed the coast near Byron Bay. This pic just after 2pm.



Storms gathering to my west.



The main storm as it passed over McLeans Ridges.

Well how great is it to have storms back!!! I'm looking forward to chasing this year. I'm stoked with my first lighting images for the season :)

Your perseverance paid off Kane - nice capture of the storm. Been ages since I've seen some spectacular lightning. There were a few powerful CGs just ahead of and in the storm here yesterday but it was not a situation where capturing any was likely.

Here is the radar loop for 28 Sep showing the strong cells which passed through Evans Head then later the Casino, Lismore, McLeans Ridges, Ballina one.  Also later the storm off Coffs - what time was your photo Kane?

128km Radar Loop for Grafton, 00:00 28/09/2010 to 13:00 28/09/2010 UTC


The Brisbane and Moree soundings are attached for reference too. The moisture shown on the Bris sounding was quite impressive for this time of year.


PS - Karina and all - there is a bug in the attach function, just add one at a time and edit though it doesn't affect all browsers.

Beautiful pictures!

I wish I'm down there yesterday and maybe today. Those cells were certainly summer style!

Not sure if Lismore cell is a supercell, it was visible rotation on the radar with black core holding for 30minutes.

So Michael, not sure if you seen the rotation on radar, i mean the direction was ENE while other cells are ESE to SE??

There were many CGs here too but the rain was that thick you didn't have a chance to capture any, so what is the set up like today is it any good? any thoughts?

Mathew, the Lismore storm would have been a HP supercell between Casino and just east of Lismore - for about an hour or less.

The sixth photo of mine shows a classic looking HP base with the prong on the left - into the wall cloud, though it didn't last long after that.

After a little bit of thundery rain earlier, the skies are mostly clear out this way. As for further activity, I'm not really sure, although cells are still firing up south of the border.
