A major storm is headed for Sydney this arvo

The Bureau of Meteorology has also warned for damaging winds in Sydney and parts of the Blue Mountains/Hawkesbury, Gosford/Wyong, Wollondilly/Wingecarribee and Greater Wollongong areas.

It comes after a thunderstorm with hail hit parts of eastern New South Wales yesterday.

There were reports of marble size hail falling in the Galston area, north of Sydney.

In northern parts of Sydney and Newcastle about 20mm of rain fell in just one hour.

But the storm was swift and pinpointed – with Sydney south of the harbour not seeing a drop of moisture while the north shore was being lashed.


For the rest of the week Sydneysiders are set to swelter though conditions 10C or more above average with further warnings of waves of storms rolling through the city.

Temperatures will rise ahead of a cold front marching up the NSW coast. Sydney’s CBD could reach 33C today with 36C in the western suburbs.

Overall this week, conditions are far more favourable to keeping a check on the bushfire crisis although the cold front could whip up some blazes.

This afternoon’s storm could be another short and sharp system with concentrated downpours blasting up the NSW coast.

By the end of Tuesday night it might all be over and Wednesday should see a more average November high of just 23C in the Harbour City.

The cold front will do its work and by Wednesday so expect a 10C drop in the mercury before it heads back up to the 30C mark later in the week.
