Dec 19, 2021

Source: Bureau of Meteorology


An Amber warning from BOM at 6.06pm.


Not too surprisingly – if you look out the window you can see it building – storm activity is beginning to sweep over the Hawkesbury.


Check out the BOM warning map – it is very broad and includes our area, and specifically they have mentioned Penrith area and surrounds.


Weather Situation: A cold front and pre-frontal trough is combining with a strong upper level trough to aid extensive thunderstorm activity across the state. This activity will contract eastward this afternoon and evening.


Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce damaging winds in the warning area over the next several hours. Locations which may be affected include Gosford, Sydney, Wollongong, Nowra, Orange and Dubbo.


Thanks to Early Warning Network for this alert.
