Thunderstorms ready to rumble through northern NSW

Rob Sharpe, Thursday October 17, 2013 - 15:13 EDT

A line of thunderstorms is developing in northern New SOuth Wales and will barely miss a town in its path to the northeast.

Thunderstorms kicked off along the NSW/QLD border to the west of Goodoga. A severe thunderstorm warning for damaging winds and large hail.

The initial storms along the border will spread further south into NSW to Gunnedah and the upper Hunter. This line of storms will then march east through northeastern NSW into the evening.

Storms won't bring too much rainfall today, however overnight into tomorrow morning the Northern Rivers district should see some isolated falls of around 20mm.

Inland Queensland will experience storms about central and northern parts today, but tomorrow the trough will focus on the southeast. Brisbane should get some thundery rain tomorrow morning into the early afternoon. Further north and inland of Brisbane storms could be more distinct and potentially severe.
