Strangeness in Sydney Skies
Just went outside for a smoke and the sky is flashing but no thunder or lightning. Seemed strange so I thought I'd see if any of y'all GLPers can explain this?

Re: Strangeness in Sydney Skies
I just came back from my evening walk and saw the same thing. It's a big electrical storm off Wollongong. The lightning is occurring through cloudbanks hence the flashes, and it's too far offshore for the sound of the thunder to make it to where you are (or where I am).

There's nothing strange about it - we're in the summer storm season - but it could mean a damaging storm if it makes landfall tonight.
