Severe thunderstorms have battered parts of the east coast and interior of NSW, bringing large hailstones, and heavy downpours big enough to bring down the roof of a shopping complex.
In Penrith on Tuesday evening, the roof of a Homeco store collapsed under the weight of the sudden heavy rain. It's understood the city received upwards of 15mm of rainfall within a few minutes.
Weatherzone reported 130,000 lightning strikes across NSW last night, as the weather event moved to the state's nort-west.
In the Central West region, Chiefly Dam registered 24.8mm falling within half-an-hour.
Meanwhile, Gunnedah Airport recorded wind gusts of up to 83km/h on Tuesday afternoon.
More storms are expected for Sydney and the state's interior over the coming days. For much of the east coast, rain is forecast until early next week.
