Violent weather anomaly in New South Wales, Australia brings giant hail, unseasonal snow and destructive winds across NSW

A severe weather anomaly swept across New South Wales, Australia on November 6, 2017.

Two people were sent to hospital after a roof collapsed due to intense rain, giant hail and destructive winds across NSW. Unseasonal snow also reported. Some describe the storm as the most severe hailstorm experienced in 30 years in the area.

The Bureau of Meteorology issued severe thunderstorm warnings, a marine wind warning and hazardous surf warning for Monday over the North West Slopes and Plains, parts of the Upper Hunter and inland parts of the Mid-North Coast, NSW.

Officials also warned of “giant hail and destructive winds” with thunderstorms for the whole Monday mostly from Port Macquarie, Taree, Armidale, Tamworth, Gunnedah, Moree, Narrabri, Walgett to Lightning Ridge.

And yes! It’s snowing at the same time in the northern and southern hemispheres:

The State Emergency Service responded to more than 400 calls for assistance by Monday afternoon across the state as trees fell, cars were damaged and powerlines went down.

A roof collapsed, sending two people with non-life-threatening injuries to hospital in the town of Kurri Kurri just after 2:00pm on Monday.

The storm also triggered a powerful hailstorm with golf-ball-sized hail in Wollongong.

Farmers fear for their animals and cultivations as the damage from Sunday night’s storm was “massive”.
