NSW: Severe thunderstorm around Sydney. Instability caused by an upper trough spawned some slow-moving thunderstorms overnight in the Sydney region, extending into the Illawarra. The most severe reported was at Rose Bay where one gauge recorded 81mm in two hours early this morning for a 24-hour total of 96mm. Flash flooding damaged shops and closed roads in Double Bay, while marble-sized hail was reported at Bondi. Storms redeveloped in Sydney and the Central Tablelands during the afternoon, one giving Mt Boyce in the Blue Mountains 13.6mm in 14 minutes.
