Hail Reports
~ Mon 13th - Several lines of fast moving storms passed through from 1250. Brief 'marble sized hail' (around 1cm) fell
around 1330. Widespread tree damage was observed around Raymond Terrace with several large trees either being
uprooted or snapped off at ground level. In areas I'd estimate wind gusts easily near 100km/h would have occurred. Here
I recorded a max gust of 53.3km/h, SSE at 1255 with the first line of storms.
Barrington Tops Snowfalls
~ Thu 16th - The NPWS reported 2.5cm of snow fell overnight on the BTs until 1100 on thursday.
