Captured these shots this evening from Bundoora looking WSW. Very slow moving with an organised base, inflow from the north and later from the south too, several horizontal funnels in the early stages too. No observed rotation in the low levels but some curvature/striations in the midlevel clouds.

That's a lot closer to home than normal, if only they all passed by our doorstep lol! Love the third shot :)

Awesome shots Brad!! I can't believe I missed it here!

I've been seeing some orange blobs on radar recently and just thought they were heavy showers! Didn't think to look as a result!

Will keep a closer eye on these now! lol

Cheers, Cam :D
