Storm leaves a fish out of water | Gillie and Marc | Sydney Morning Herald

Powerful storms swept across most regions of the city on Friday, prompting warnings about large hailstones, heavy rainfall and damaging winds, and sending shoppers dashing for cover.

The threat to commuters heading home, though, has now passed – unless they are heading north to regions such as the Hunter, the Bureau of Meteorology said.

“All the dynamics of the atmosphere came together for a short time,” Mohammed Nabi, a Bureau of Meteorology forecaster, said. “It was a short, sharp event.”
AdvertisementMona Vale on Sydney’s northern beaches copped the heaviest falls, with 27mm of rain over the three-hour spell, Mr Nabi said.
While the bureau is predicting a relatively smooth journey home for most Sydney residents, it says severe thunderstorms were detected near Cessnock and headed towards Raymond Terrace.
