‘First taste of winter’: Southern parts of NSW get severe weather warning

Heavy rainfall, damaging winds and hail will threaten large parts of the state across Friday night and Saturday morning, with the Bureau of Meteorology issuing a severe weather warning during the afternoon.

“The south-east of the country is about to experience its first taste of winter this weekend,” meteorologist Andrea Peace, from the weather bureau, said.

In the 24 hours from 9am on Thursday, parts of the state received more than 40 to 60 millimetres of rain, thanks to heavy storms, particularly in the Central West.

On Friday at 4pm, residents in the South Coast, Central and Southern Tablelands, South West Slopes, the Snowy-Monaro and ACT were told to prepare for damaging wind gusts as a series of cold fronts move across the south.
