Pictures from the 30th December 2006

Although mostly uneventful for me proceeding out to the Riverina for a few days chasing, I had to stop and photograph the reminants of hail drifts near Sunny Corner east of Bathurst. It apparently caused problems for traffic on the Great Western Highway

Pictures from the 31st December 2006 for what it was worth. Unfortunately, moisture was still starved from the region leading to high based storms to the far west and pulse storms including the hailstorm in Canberra!

These pictures were taken 30km east of Hay






Some of you may laugh at the site of these glaciating cumulus but I am interested in finding time to look at the timelapse of how it developed. Although the moisture was depleted, wind shear was quite favourable.

That cell on the 31st Dec reminds me of this one on the NSW North Coast on 5th Jan 2000



This storm managed to tap into good moisture and developed further into a supercell right on the coast as part of a triple point (I think), but the comparison is there at the early stages.

Sorry about the late post,but i've done brief reports from this event on my website including some photos and radar images. Some links below.

A few storms developed off the Illawarra this evening .Lightning was very active. Low cloud in response to a weak SE change spoiled things a little.
december 28-offshore lightning show


December 29- me and my brother were on the Goulburn storm today,some nice structure and rotation despite the poor shear.
december 29- Goulburn

We also chased near Yass on the day of the Canberra hail storm. More storms up near Gunning way but much weaker. Of course we were on the Gunning storm,and totally missed the Canberra storm. Some nice flangs though and some small hail and minor flash flooding.

An enjoyable couple of days,and probrably the highlight of my poor season.

Cheers.
