Storms Develop But Don’t Reach the Coast


Social Media Shares:

On Tuesday 11/11/2014, storms developed in the late morning and early afternoon across the Darling Downs and near the border ranges, but none made it as far as the coast. The day’s storm activity started on the border south of Warwick, with a very strong cell that produced a black core on radar and which tracked north throughout the afternoon.

This storm produced an impressive circular anvil as seen above. The cell tracked north before petering out west of Amberley around 3pm. It was replaced by a mess of smaller popcorn cells along a rough line from Warwick to Toowoomba and Oakey. This eventually organised and moved north.

A second line also formed further southwest between Stanthorpe and Millmerran and this moved north east into the late afternoon and evening before finally dying out along a line from Logan to Ipswich and Yarraman.

Probably the best thing about todays chase other than lightning and rotating clouds over Allora was the much needed...
