well it just ripped through here and I'm very protected, it was quite short lived though. That would have to create damage!!!

I think that will be pretty widespread, we have had a lot of wind lately, these trees are going to be weak

Very strong gusts here but no rain at all, this system is looking a dud rainwise.

We had a massive gust which tripped our power. A wild old system, yet still dry.

Had a wind gust of 70kph, it picked a heavy chair off my deck and blew it into the garden as if it was made of balsa wood.

Looks as though the band is intensifying rain wise as it is tracking east.

Wind is Extreme to say the least. Lost power twice in the last 20 minutes. Lights still flicking a lot. Expect to see wide spread damage from this. Will the main winds continue as the rains go through, or should it simmer down once the bulk of the line passes?

Yeah, part of the neighbours fence is down too. Leasy, that's pretty scary. Was it a big tree?

Just looking at my records, to the same date last year I had 370.2mm while this year only 262mm, I thought last year was a shocker..

Yeah, it was a big tree, the top branch has come off (will post a photo tonight) and the branch itself is as big and thick as a small tree!! affraid

It was one of those ghost gums, we were lucky it also just missed our air-con unit (temporary one - we had a major fire at work 4 weeks ago, and only my area has reoccupied), and our power flickered for a good 20 minutes - no power outages though.

Twas pretty bad out there!

Does anyone know exactly why we are getting extremely vigorous NW systems on a weekly basis? What is spurning this weather pattern?
