(thursday arvo 31st jan)As the line moved NE it intesified over the central sth west suburbs , this shows lowering which lasted 10 minutes (that i could see) , i was not chasing and had no mobile as it had suffered from a rare microburst which occurred between my arm and the concrete the day before and ended in the phone dispursing itself over a wide terrain after a disageement with partner over my choice of chasing days.

G'day all,

Nice to see some great structures around the place (well, from the Sydney region anyway? ;) ) I'd give my right arm to see some decent build structure in the way of an inflow shelf or a nice RFB at the moment! I think the wind shear is still too weak and possibly something amiss in the temperature/DP department out this way?

Looks like the storms will be around for a couple more days so I'm praying for something a little different in the numbers to show up.
Cheers guys,
Shauno

Interestingly enough, here at Rydalmere I had a lot of outflow scud heading away from the storm at high speed before the main band came over. The main part of the storm travelled to my east through the Ryde area looking at the radar, but as it approached from the south the scud was heading in a NW direction with lots of CGs to the south. A few good ones seen but nothing caught on camera.

Nice close up structure in those photos Con.

Chase Report January 31st Penrith

I didn't venture out earlier but I did shoot photos of the structure from home which I then deleted by accident later on! I went out and shot some lightning after the main cell had moved north. The cell I photographed was riding the southerly in towards Penrith and even though it only produced sporadic lightning, they were quality multiple bolts. Unfortunately I didn't quite have the camera pointed in the right direction so I only got half of the best bolt. Doh!!! >:(
