STORM CHASING 2015-2016

UPDATE:

On this day (Monday afternoon) I spoke with Emma Griffiths on 612 ABC Brisbane about storm chasing and Sunday's damaging storms through Warwick and Brisbane:

I wasn't going to chase today but a storm near Harrisville was close enough to prise me out of the house.

When I got to Roadvale some rotation was evident but not long lasting. The cell had already produced hail near Mulgowie.

The updraft would regenerate then weaken again:

A mid-level funnel appeared briefly on a cloud to its SW:

Dan from Aussie Storm Chasers showed up but there wasn't much left to see:

Some new updrafts were forming to the SW:

But the most intense action was provided by the bugs flying and crawling everywhere:

I met my friend Chrissy at a spot just to the S where we hoped these updrafts would be powerful enough to throw a few bolts out on dusk. They weren't. But they did produce a nice sunset:
