Remarkable.  The power of nature.  Please tell me this is the last round of storms.

By the way, how do you take a picture of a storm with the lightning?

Long shutter speed and a bit of luck, and a flat surface or tripod usually does the trick. Smile

Storms now over here in Camden.

Was on the east hills train on the way home when the first lot went through. Had one lightning crack about 100m away from the train, just across the river near Turella. Flash and crack almost instantaneously. Lightened up a bit until Holsworthy where it was pissing down again. Cleared up for the rest of the trip to Campbelltown. Stepped in the door and crash, bang and the rain came dumping down. Good show of wind, rain and lightning. Even the cats ran inside for this one (Stoic cats these that normally like being outside under the eaves in the rain!).  Camden AP is saying just under 35mm of rain in that dump. My garden footing trenches, after having been drained on the weekend, are back to Moat status.  Laughing

Guaranteed. Our local tamed weatherman for the gliding club just posted this update on our forums about storms:

http://interact.gliding.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=141

(Hopefully you can read  that publicly without needing a login) His prediction is more of the same, but a little less severe.

HEADS UP NSW
Thunderstorms redeveloping across NSW, including Sydney
Press Release, Wednesday November 10, 2010 - 08:28 EDT
Hazy skies in Sydney will give way to warm sunshine later this morning before showers and thunderstorms develop later, just two days after the most recent storms, according to weatherzone.com.au.

"The hazy cloud is a result of moist, light easterly winds combining with cloud moving in from the northwest. This cloud has been bringing patchy, drizzly light showers which should persist on and off for a few hours this morning, mainly affecting northern suburbs," Weatherzone meteorologist Brett Dutschke said.

"The sun will appear later in the morning, allowing it to warm up into a humid, summer-like day, which will turn thundery this afternoon and evening," Dutschke said.

"Thunderstorms may develop as early as about midday in western suburbs and from about 3pm in the city as a trough develops over the region."

"These storms are a chance to be severe, with brief heavy downpours the most likely feature. On average these storms will bring five to 15 millimetres of rain but there is potential for as much as 30mm. Large hail is also a possibility."

Storms can be expected anywhere across Sydney during the afternoon and evening, like on Monday.

Earlier this morning a large storm brought 29mm to Dubbo, including 10mm in 10 minutes. This 29mm is their heaviest rain in six months.

On Thursday and Friday thunderstorms will be mostly confined to inland New South Wales, giving Sydney a break.

"Over the weekend storms will become more widespread across NSW and the ACT as warm northerly winds gain moisture and instability. Some storms may bring as much as 30 to 50mm to west of the ranges," Dutschke said.

"For Sydney this weekend, it will be mostly sunny and warm, potentially the warmest weekend since March. Only late each day is there a chance of showers and storms."
