Flights Grounded At Sydney Airport As Storm Wreaks Havoc

Severe thunderstorms have hit Sydney with heavy rain, flash flooding and hail all likely.

Flights have been grounded at Sydney Airport due to lightning strikes, with a supercell thunderstorm brewing right overhead.

The Bureau of Meteorology issued a late, severe weather warning just before 4pm.

Already, Camden, in Sydney’s south has copped another beating.

BOM duty forecaster Jordan Notara told The Daily Telegraph said large hail stones and heavy rainfall would be concentrated in the north of the city.

“There is the possibility they will continue into the night, but with severe thunderstorms they can be hard to predict.”

Earlier today the BOM issued a severe thunderstorm warning for Central NSW, with areas such as Gosford, Orange, Dubbo, Wagga Wagga, Bourke, Albury and Goulburn hit.

The rain is expected to continue until at least Friday, which is predicted to be the wettest day of the week for the region.

Sunday should see the rains clear up, with a predicted forecast of 18c and mostly sunny.
