Tornado in Sydney?
At 1151 the Weather Bureau issued a "severe thunderstorm warning" with destructive winds, large hail and heavy rain/flooding likely. A likely tornado with 213 kmh winds was reported at 1030 at Kurnell (near Sydney Airport).
We are maybe 20km north of Kurnell, I`ve seen brief heavy rain, heard thunder, but nothing like what is being forecast, so it must be localised. The forecast covers a wide area north south and west of Sydney, we may see something yet. We do need rain, but not "feast or famine" weather.
It`s 1216 here now, next forecast at 1255. Calm, quiet,dry, here right now.
