This seems to be the issue around my area too, every season appears to be arriving a month early here.

Yes its has been or should I say feels like a strange year for the weather.

no ****, I woke up at 12pm today to crazy noise, went out the workshop to fine it starting to flood again.... last year it was because debris had blocked the drains, I went straight out to check, nope, this year it was simply because of the insane amount of water that fell and the drainage couldnt cope with the volume, then it was gone....

it started raining inside, water had blown in pretty much horizontally under the eves and into the roof, it came down through the light fittings, narrowly missing raining into my dac with the top off...

"Nice" to hear we aren't the only ones getting really weird weather these days. :D

I would guess we are already beyond the tipping point and had better prepare for some pretty big climactic changes.

I live in Woody Point...

it felt here today as if it scraped by us, we didnt see all that much action other than electrical, but not far from here and in brisvegas there were hailstones up to 10cm!

I was watching the geostationary radar, we got full blown warnings for this area, really concentrated storm 'cells' measurements off the charts in really spotty, kinda stochastic distribution. but yeah I guess it swerved to miss us by a few hundred meters, that jetty is literally 400m away from me

I love how some 'stupidheads' have misunderstood the term supercell and dubbed their videos 'Brisbane superstorm' it was very unusual weather and yes there was some damage, its a bit scary for the times ahead given how early i the storm season it is, but I would not call this a superstorm
