The storm started rather tame looking and very high based
WollongongHowever that flat based was very dark and experience told me the small ripples along the base was a potential severe sign ( see larger picture)
As the storm moved off the escarpment and tapped into coastal moisture it devleoped some rather nasty structure

This is NOT a tornado, but  none the less a sign of storm severity

The storm quickly became an outflow party.
