Today I was working up towards Gosford (not quite that far) and had a nice view of some cloud buildup to the west of Sydney. When I got home about 4pm checked the radar and a cell west of Colo and tracking NNE had developed a nice black core before it fell apart about an hour later. Inaccesible country though if anyone had decided to chase it. There were also some smaller cells to the west and south but nothing really tracked over the Sydney area.

Also currently there is a severe storm warning out for parts of Queensland but nothing looks too heavy on radar at the moment from Warrego.

Still hoping Sydney will get it's turn this summer!

Managed to get another 35mm at home yesterday (28th) from scattered showers which has brought the household tanks back up to almost full. Finally ! :)

Goods good. Interesting to see Rous Water levels to hit 100% full soon too. It peaked at 87% last week and im sure it around 95% by now. Armidale managed to add extra 7mm overnight from some showers.
