Here is the McLeans Ridges webcam timelapse for 12th February. Quite a few thunderstorm cells visible during the day.

Hi all, did a chase Sunshine Coast, Kilcoy, Kingaroy, Wondai, Gympie and return Sunshine coast Sunday. Chaser convergence occurred briefly with Anthony and Dave-wx. Some lovely structure at times but enjoyed the lightning just before dark..... Was too wet after dark to go some awesome crawlers streaking across the sky.

Jeff,
It's just great how that sequence of shots of that advancing storm enshroud each hill as it approaches your viewpoint. That parched landscape certainly needed  that moisture. The inflow /outflow interface  and turbulence features are well photographed. The lightning is a special bonus. Poweful image there Jimmy of the Rylstone storm and Rodney's c.g blasts are crystal clear. Cheers, Con.

Jimmy,

I agree with Dave that the structure in the 3rd photo is very interesting. What direction were you looking at the time?

G'day Con, good to hear from you again lately.

Regards Jeff.

Jeff and David,

The photograph was looking generally north travelling along the road between Gulgong to Dunedoo. The base photographs coincide with this feature but about 15-20 minutes prior to the feature.

Regards,

Michael B, others - the lowering was just after sunset, say 7:45 pm, possibly a bit later as it was almost dark.,

The convergence line had just developed aided by outflow of the stuff further west earlier. The line than persisted as we know for several hours.

Surface winds were calm, although the lightning illuminated pic looks like an approaching guster, it was not, it was all training into the line and heading S/SW.

Nearest marked location on radar would be Dapto.

Thanks for that extra info MichaelT.

btw - did anyone see the footage of a flash flood near Merriwa on the 10th ?  Radar (Newcastle 256) shows three cells converging into one larger cell right where it occurred. The footage is impressive:

Hi Michael,

Yes that is rather impressive and certainly does illustrate what not to do with car! They obviously saw it occur elsewhere and came there to watch it.

I did hear of 4 inches of rain falling in quick timing in that region!

Hi Michael,

I just realised I was in this region chasing on the 10th February. Where was the flash flood located? The figures I quoted were the day before.
