Another day and more storms in South East Queensland. Storms began developing on the eastern Darling Downs early in the morning and quickly formed into a 250km long line Kyogle to Oakey.

Gust Front Approaches Woody Point just before 3pm

The line moved through the CBD at 2:30 before forming a rain area over the northside. The storm also produced a nice looking gust front that moved through the northside and across Bramble Bay towards Redcliffe.

Meanwhile a second line of storm cells developed in the west between Tenterfield and Millmerran. This line dumped heavy rain on the Gold Coast from 6pm, the CBD from 6:30 and Northern Suburbs and Redcliffe just after 7pm. The storms have left behind some rain areas which continue to drop good falls across a large area of South East Queensland.

The heaviest rainfalls were to the north and to the south of the city, with large areas receiving between 50 and 100mm of rain. Beachmont, in the Gold Coast Hinterland, had one of the highest rainfall totals with 94mm.

Daniel Saltwell shared these two very nice lightning crawler pictures from south of Brisbane. Thanks for sharing!

I love chasing storms around. Clouds always changing making for a interesting photo every minute. This was at Kings Beach just before all the storms hit 🙂

Had quite a few storms today! Here was one of the nicer looking ones as it came across the northern suburbs of Brisbane.

A tree gets whacked by #lightning as the #storm winds up at Radford (just S of Warrill View) today.
