Thunderstorm warnings have been issued for this afternoon, particularly in Penrith, Hornsby, Richmond and Picton. The storm is currently headed for the CBD.
A spokesperson from the Bureau of Meterology says we’re set to witness “large hailstones, bigger than 2 centimetres, in the next half hour.”
Winds of up to 100 kilometres per hour are expected for later this afternoon. As a result, road blockages are likely, so watch out for falling trees, telephone poles, ice-cream vans, the neighbours’ cat, or anything that looks a little unsteady.
Warnings have been made to drivers to slow down and use headlights. Take your time – don’t rush home.
