A trough is interacting with a humid airmass to produce thunderstorms across much of the state.
Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce large hailstones, heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding and damaging winds in the warning area over the next several hours. Locations which may be affected include Orange, Goulburn, Walgett, Dubbo and Parkes.
Severe thunderstorms are no longer occurring in the South Coast, Snowy Mountains and Australian Capital Territory districts and the warning for these districts is CANCELLED. However, some thunderstorm activity will continue to occur and we are actively monitoring the situation.
