    Hey all

    I know someone wouldn't want me to chat about this study on this forums. But it generally scientific. Northern Rivers is major region in northern New South Wales in Australia. It lies between the border to Grafton, coast to Tabulam.

    Northern Rivers region is most common severe thunderstorm activity in Australia storm season between September to April. We have alot of wild storms such as supercells (Texas-like storms). Over last few years, our storms have been increased their severity and activity. In 2002 (El Nino year) we had less fruequent storm season on record since 1905). Last storm season , over 50 severe storms have been passed through Northern Rivers and 15 of them were supercells.

    In climatically, our thunderstorms have been alot more severe than last 55 years. Jimmy Degura said that Northern Rivers would have most supercells this season coming up on record. Therefore would be some superstorms such as Texas/US tornadoes.

    Definition of Supercell is here

    I would like to see the suggestions about this topic.

    Cheers
