Snow/Hail & Sleet 13/05/15

SNOW, Its all about the Snow which has fallen across the Southern Highlands.

Snow has fallen at Wingello, Belanglo and the areas around the Hume Hwy, Breadalbane (between Goulburn and Gunning).

The freezing level is also quite low, at around 1200 meters. Whilst the highest points of the Highlands don't even reach 900 meters, the convective nature of these storms/showers enabled snow to the settle, Snow normally is more likely to settle in the 2 to 4c range.

ECL Update - 01/05/15

A very serious situation is currently occurring in SE QLD and NE NSW.

An East Coast Low developed off the Sunshine Coast several hours ago. As a result winds along the coast have strengthened to gale force, and rainfall has enhanced significantly. To make matters worse, a convergence line established itself just inland from the Brisbane coast. This has destabilized the situation even further leading to torrential rain,and some incredible rain fall rates. Numerous lightning strikes have also occurred in the area over the last hour or two.

Nowra Area - 01/05/15

With 23mm of rain falling in the Nowra area since 9am and receiving 35mm overnight. I thought I would check out the local area.

More rain is forecast, more on that in our update later. Places like Jaspers Brush airfield resemble more a lake with a stunning back drop of Cambewarra Mountain.
