Severe thunderstorms were forecast to sweep over New South Wales on Thursday, October 14, Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology said, with damaging wind, rain and hail forecast for parts of the state.

Footage here from Daniel Strickland in Goulburn, in the southeast of the state, shows hail bouncing off his car windshield. More storms were likely in Goulburn later on Thursday, the “BOM said”":http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDN21033.shtml.

The weather service said storms were more likely in the northeast of the state.
