Severe storms traverse length of NSW coast
Tropical low brings heavy rain, flooding to Far North QLD
Tropical Cyclone Fay threatens WA north coast
Heavy storms and showers in NT Top End
Record cold March morning in western VIC
QLD's January floods reach Lake Eyre SA

Above: The sequence of storm development from late last night to mid evening today. A powerful storm cell develops off the far NSW South Coast shortly before midnight, then moves NNE up the coast giving torrential rain around Moruya before dissipating offshore near Wollongong. A second cell develops between Sydney and Newcastle around 8am, then moves NNE as other cells propagate more broadly over the northeast of the state. Weatherzone Silver
Below: The detailed movement of storm cells in NE NSW this afternoon. Weatherzone Silver

Above: 500hPa (about 6km) middle atmosphere chart at 11pm EDST shows strong vorticity or curvature across NE NSW associated with the upper trough. The cyclonic curvature, coupled with the arrival of cooler upper air with the trough, produced widespread uplift. COLA
Below: The situation in the upper atmosphere further enhanced uplift in the northeast. The 200hPa chart (about 12.5km) shows that NE NSW was under the entrance to a strong jetstream. Air accelerating into the faster part of the upper level jet increases upwards vertical motion in the atmosphere below. COLA

Severe storms traverse length of NSW coast

An area of severe thunderstorms caused serious destruction in the town of Murwillumbah early this evening, and more general damage in the state's northeast corner. The event was the culmination of an unusual situation in which a sequence of storms traversed the full length of the NSW coast over an 18 hour period , riding ahead of a very weak surface front but with serious support aloft.

An isolated but intense thunderstorm formed off the NSW far South Coast late yesterday evening, moving NNE mostly offshore until dissipating off Wollongong mid-morning. During its run up the coast, however, it extended over land from south of Bodalla to around Batemans Bay, giving some torrential falls. Bodalla reported 49.2, Narooma 32 and Moruya Airport 25 for the 24 hours to 9am, all falling in the storm, however an unofficial report of "about 100mm" was received from Bingie, on the coast SE of Moruya. Point Perpendicular Lighthouse on Jervis Bay recorded 26.2mm between 4 and 6am.

As this storm cell was dissipating soon after dawn, a second was forming over the NSW Central Coast, and proceeded to track NNE up the Hunter and Mid North Coasts during the late morning and early afternoon. This cell gave a wind gust of 96km/h at Norah Head at 8.05am as well as 9am to 3pm falls of 36mm at Nelson Bay, 43 at Forster and 32 at Mt Seaview. Waterspouts were reported off the coast near Newcastle.

Both storms were intensified by the passage of a strong upper trough up the coast. As the trough moved into warmer, moister air in the state's northeast, it also came underneath the entrance to a strong jetstream , resulting in a widespread outbreak of storms, some severe, from around midday .

The Richmond and Tweed Valleys bore the brunt of these storms with flash flooding closing roads around Lismore where 30.4mm was recorded at the airport in 19 minutes. Wind caused extensive house and tree damage, particularly in Murwillumbah. Of 99 calls for help received by the SES, 86 were from the town where over 50 houses were damaged and several destroyed. Over a dozen homes were partially or wholly unroofed in Byangum Road which runs for about 2km west from the town centre. Violent winds also downed trees and power poles over a wide area from Lismore to Kyogle and northeast to Murwillumbah. Over 120 SES personnel spent Friday mopping up the damage. Bray Park, 2km SW of the town, recorded 72.8mm for the 24 hours to 9am Friday.

The storms dissipated during the early evening as they moved across the border into QLD, though not before giving some heavy falls along the Gold and Sunshine Coasts and as far west as Oakey on the western Darling Downs.

Late in April, natural disaster relief was made available to affected farmers through the NSW Rural Assistance Authority. Damage to banana and zucchini crops, fences, shade houses and hail netting was estimated at $200,000.

Tropical low brings heavy rain, flooding to Far North QLD

A developing low in the monsoon trough is bringing ever-heavier rain onto the Far North QLD coast. The low, which was located 100km NNE of Cooktown at 6pm, directed strengthening SE winds and heavy showers onto the mountain-backed coast from Ingham to Cooktown today. Top falls to 9am were 163mm at Copperlode Dam 13km SW of Cairns, 161 at Jarra Creek 10km NW of Tully, and 156 at Topaz, on the eastern edge of the Atherton Tableland about 25km west of Innisfail. Most North Coast rainfall stations recorded over 50mm and about half recorded over 100mm (details below), giving many stations totals for the week to this morning of 300 to 500mm. During the day, rain eased somewhat, but heavy showers continued on the Daintree coast, offshore from which Low Isles Lighthouse recorded 88mm between 9am and 9pm. Moderate flooding in the Daintree River was worsening tonight, while the Mulgrave River at Gordonvale was in moderate flood and the Tully and Murray Rivers were in minor flood. A cyclone watch was declared at 3.40pm from Cape Melville to Lucinda.

Tropical Cyclone Fay threatens WA north coast

Tropical Cyclone Fay continued to sit just off the northern tip of the WA Kimberley coast today as it deepened to 972hPa by 8pm. Now rated at category 2, the cyclone was estimated to be producing 120km winds along the nearby coast, with a highest measured gust of 93km/h at 11pm at Troughton Island. Rain from the cyclone in the admittedly sparse rain gauge network over the Kimberley diminished during the day.

Heavy storms and showers in NT Top End

The late-season resurgence of the monsoon trough has brought heavy showers and thunderstorms across the NT Top End. About a dozen stations reported 24 hour totals between 50 and 110mm to 9 this morning, and the same number reported between 50 and 90mm to 9am Friday.

Record cold March morning in western VIC

There was an unusually localised cold start to the day in western VIC this morning. In the Horsham area, the Polkemmet station, 11km NW of the town, recorded 1.5°, 9.8 below average and a new March record in 43 years at the site. Longerenong, 10km ENE of the town recorded 1.6, a new March record in 39 years. The relatively new airport AWS, 5km NNW of the town, recorded a rounded reading of 1°. Nhill, 65km to the northwest, has the distinction of a 102-year computerised temperature record; its minimum of 2.4 was 8.6 below the norm, but 3.0° above its record for March.

QLD's January floods reach Lake Eyre SA

Flooding rain that fell in western QLD two months ago has arrived in Lake Eyre. The water, which has flowed slowly down the Diamantina River, then the Warburton Creek and through the Warburton Groove into the lake, is producing a fairly shallow lake in the middle of the vast saltpan, much smaller than the major filling of 2000. The water is not visible from the "shore" of the salt, but local rangers report that pelicans, ducks and gulls are flocking to the newly-arrived water to feed on the brine shrimp and breed.
