This Pic was taken from my verandah this afternoon 23/10/2007 at approx 1500. (sorry no spectacular CG shots)

This was looking east from Goonelllabah, my question is below the bottom line in the photo there was very very low cloud and masses of it moving rapidly to the north.
The cloud mass in the top say half of the photo was being drawn into the approching storm/front equally as fast as the stuff moving north; almost like rotation but not quite.

Is this normal? For the storm to be churning in on itself like that? and for masses of cloud to be detached from the main body of cloud be very close to the ground and moving quick?

about 15 minutes this passed and we got pea sized hail and LOTS of rain. wind a few closeish CG's

Cheers

Wow! There are some fantastic shots here.

Just thought I would add this one: this is looking out towards the Kyogle area.

Gayndah and Emerald in QLD were hit by severe storms last night.

There were gusts to 180km/h at Gayndah!!! Also 80mm of rain in about an hour.

Wow there's certainly some nice structure on this thread now!

Pingtang that LP looking cell is beautifull mate! I bet you were stoked with that and with the lightning show!

Did anyone see the storms this arvo east of Moree? The anvils on them were 200+km long! and they appeared to be right and left moving splits on radar.

Hi Jeff, yes I was watching those Moree cells on radar I could even see lightning from the anvil of the right moving storm here in Coffs when the storm was still west of Armidale! Must have really got up high into the atmosphere. Also a nice cell formed over Dorrigo earlier I took photos from home just a shame I'm on the wrong side of it here.

Looking good  ;D
The leading edge is over Tweed Heads. Well at least I assume it is the same cell.

Hi Micheal you must be talking about the Kyogle storm current at the moment right lol? The Moree storms I was referring to for Jeff to were late yesterday haha. Indeed the current Kyogle storm looks quite nice to.

Hi enak, yes I think the Kyogle cell is what I am looking at.
On the Grafton 256 I also see light rain ahead of the Kyogle cell....but it aint raining ???

Yes Ive managed to get some pics of the storm approaching Uki/Mt Warning from the Kyogle area. Just now I was out and I captured some pretty mammatus. Behind the mammatus there is a grey wall thats not very interesting to photograph. There is some thunder off in the distance but it appears to be moving slowly at this stage. The cloud base is quite high and there is no lightning to report yet.

Micheal, is it part of the anvil?

check out these radar echos of the Dorrigo storm, the bottom one is from not long ago, looks pretty suss I'm thinking.





Infact the BOM has singled it out in there warning, don't think I've seen that before outside Sydney and SE QLD:

"At 3:26pm a particularly severe thunderstorm was moving towards Grafton and is expected to move over the town in the next 30 minutes."

Yeah, will be interesting to grab the observations from that area when they're updated. I've only see them do it once before (point out a storm outside of a Capital), and that was the one that hit Gayndah....

just had a small storm pass armidaleheading towards grafton. lots of heavy rain but no hail.
hope this big front from inland comes closer to armidale..... should be a lot of fun  :)
if anyone has any information about the storm and when its close to hitting armidale or surrounding towns let me know.

I dunno.

Are these white/grey patches I have indicated with arrows, the anvils of the storms?

If not, what are they?

Cheers
