Tamworth cops a spring battering of Hail

Tennis-ball sized hail pelted down on Tamworth, on Wednesday October 28th, leaving damage to property and vehicles alike.

Numerous severe thunderstorms have hit areas on and west of the Great Dividing Range, with the Bureau of Meteorology forecasting more for southwest NSW later on Thursday.

“We saw tennis-ball sized hail occur around the Tamworth area, and we also had large accumulations of small hail along the Northern Tablelands in places like Armadale and Guyra,” bureau meteorologist Dean Narramore said.

“We also saw some pretty heavy falls on the mid-north coast, with some locations going around 50 to 70 millimetres.”

The worst of that weather system has already cleared, he says, but a severe thunderstorm warning is still current for Lismore, Grafton, Coffs Harbour, Armidale, Tamworth and Taree.

That low will head east during Saturday, bringing showers to many areas, the BOM said.
