Love that photo! Many great shots taken today and strong/potentially severe storms are still going now! Will have to see what happens tomorrow in NSW/Vic.

There seems to have been some pretty heavy rainfall over there judging from the pics my facebook friends have been posting, with lots of water where it usually isn't and a pic of a very heavy dump coming out of a system towards the Adelaide Hills.

One can only hope the system isn't quite as bad as it is forecast to be as it heads towards the flooded areas of western NSW, the last thing they need is another 100mm.

EDIT: From the current SA thunderstorm warning...

Destructive and damaging wind gusts have been recorded at several locations across the state today, including gusts of 135 km/h at Woomera, 107 km/h at Padthaway and 96 km/h at Kadina. Heavy rain and flash flooding have affected many areas and included 45 mm in one hour at Forreston. Marble sized hail was reported at a number of locations over the northern suburbs of Adelaide.

I've been living in Adelaide for 17 or so years and have never had thunder pretty much constant for what is almost 12 hours lol.

There was a huge tree down in one of the carparks in Salisbury North.
We had marble sized hail around 1pm as well.

Another big powerful storm system passing north of Adelaide now. Doppler shows quite strong wind shear along the boundary.

That Whyalla storm went on to produce a large bow echo north and east of Adelaide:

The satpic at the time was awesome, as were many of the VIS images that afternoon.

Hi guys,

Well done! That is a nice developing shelf cloud and microburst and lightning combination! The area you were in was probably more favourable than the other crap that occurred that day. Great to see someone getting out amongst it!

Nice work as usual Michael, great timelapse and those bolts!  I am assuming this was on Wednesday.

Jimmy, if it was Wednesday there was another storm on offer that wasnt crap! John and I scored the Denilliquin to Cobram supercell and boy was it a ripsnorter  ;)  Watched it close up from birth to demise including a great split, classic supercell structure, very low and very fast and broad rotation with funnels (south of Deni) and then transition to a massive HP with infow bands so low and long it was insane.  Pity the bloody Murray country where it ended up isnt good to chase like the Deni country it started in.

Brad.
hmmm June 2nd......
