Sydney Hit By Really Dangerous Storms

Thunderstorms lashing NSW have seen hailstones larger than five centimetres fall and even a tornado warning issued.

The storms were most intense over Sydney and the Lower Hunter, but hail was reported all the way between Sydney and Cowra in the state's central west. 

Those stones mostly measured between three and five centimetres, but some were even larger. 

The conditions over western Sydney were particularly serious, with meteorologists seeing all the ingredients for a "very, very dangerous supercell", said the Bureau of Meteorology's Gabrielle Woodhouse.

About 4.30pm, the bureau issued a warning for a possible tornado over western Sydney.
