Good Afternoon Everyone,
There is currently a strong storm cell overhead Katoomba and moving in an easterly direction. A formal Thunderstorm Warning has not yet been issued.
Similar to yesterday, one large storm cell is currently over the Warragamba Catchment, moving toward Warragamba and Camden. Another cell is currently over Katoomba. It is intensifying and moving to the east. A third cell is developing to the south of Oberon and moving toward the Blue Mountains.
Thunder, lightning and heavy local rain is expected to continue as the storm cell moves east. Some localised flash flooding may occur.
Residents are advised to take care, especially when driving, and are reminded to switch on their headlights when driving in adverse weather conditions.
For all life-threatening emergencies, call '000' immediately!
