Sharing moments: Stormy Sunday. Beach evacuation! Insta photo gallery

34°C, open skies and small waves. That's how my Sunday started.

 

After 2 lessons the wind turned, the air got warmer and there was that kinda smell in the air telling you something's up. The ''Southerly'' was making its way to Maroubra.

 

While I was teaching the groms we had an amazing show put on by Mother Nature. Every minute the clouds were changing shape. A huge front was traveling fast and impressive to watch.

 

- ''Stopping the lesson a few minutes earlier was a good call as we got sand blasted seconds later'' -

 

What was this? If I'm correct this type of cloud is called Arcus. (Click here for Wikipedia). If I'm wrong please let me know!

''An Arcus cloud is a low, horizontal cloud formation. Roll clouds and shelf clouds are the two types of arcus clouds. A shelf cloud is usually associated with the leading edge of thunderstorm outflow; roll clouds are usually formed by outflows of cold air from sea breezes or cold fronts in the absence of thunderstorms.''

 

I found some awesome pictures on Intagram from people who were on the beach. All taken at the Eastern Suburbs Beaches.
