    Potential for Super Cell Storms in SEQ today (29-01-2016)

    Bummer... don't have my camera with me so can't possibly get in a location where I might capture some great storm images...

    Forget the camera I just don't want to lose my roof. A few years back we had a super cell go through our place. It was like a mini tornado about 200 mtrs wide. Thank goodness it did not damage the house but it took out our hay shed and brought down many many gum trees on the property and demolished 200 mtrs of colourbond fencing. Took months for the damage to be fixed as it happened just before xmas. Try to get a tradesman from about 2 wks before xmas and 2 weeks after New Year, Near impossible.

    Thanks for the heads-up John.

    Just checked the BOM website and the NSW coast from Seal Rocks to the Vic border also have a Severe Thunderstorm Warning current. I'll keep an eye on it.

    We also had the warnings but nothing much up here either, just a small amount of rain. When I got the initial SMS warning I walked outside to see blue skies with white fluffy clouds all around. Goodness knows it's hot and muggy enough for a storm.

    Happened around here.Hit us hard with strong winds plenty of lightning and 32mm rain in around twenty minutes.Came in quick too.

    Further East and North there were trees over roads,power lines down and have heard of one roof gone.Had more rain after the storm passed,we are in a protected area at our place but it was a serious event and I kept the kids inside and made sure they didn't go out on the verandah to watch.Probably the first time we have had a decent system come though and haven't lost power in our area,but like I said...East and North did.


    CC always welcome.

    Looking at the News last night I was amazed at the damage it caused further down the East Coast.
    Only 6mm in the rain gauge this morning better than nothing and the grey grass has greened up overnight..

    We got another warning yesterday evening. The storm itself skirted Gladstone as usual although I did see lightning at a distance. I'm convinced all the heat generated from industry keeps storms away from here. We have, however, had steady rain all night and still coming down, which is welcome.


    "....and the grey grass has greened up overnight.." Always amazes me how you can pour water into your yard via a sprinkler and it barely holds its own, but get a few mm of rain and it flourishes.

    we have warnings in place now. It is very dark and dull outside, and eerily quiet. No wind. No birds chirping etc. So that bodes for something happening.

    That does sound bad, hope you get some rain soon.

    We had another warning last night but no storm just some more light rain. Did here that Coles sold out of bread on Saturday. No idea why people panic buy Gladstone doesn't get cut off by floods.
