Big & thick...slow moving too. Just the kind you'd prefer to see during the day!

That's bloody incredible!
I watched that storm cell on the BOM radar pass over the coast in the Batemans area yesterday arvo.
We had a similar cell pass over Port Hacking (Cronulla) area around the same time, looked threatening but not as severe as what you got.
They do get some severe conditions down there, I have sailed a couple of regattas in that area.
Thanks for posting.
Cheers,

Well behaved too.

Wouldn't want that knocking on the back door. :unsure:
