[rfs-bluemountains-information] Thunderstorms Again

Hi Everyone!
This is an early heads-up for you all.
Today’s forecast includes the possibility of thunderstorms and there are some brewing. Currently the area just west of Lithgow, and another area near Jenolan, are receiving some storm activity although at this stage the storm cells are still to the south-west of Katoomba. There are more cells down to the south-west of the Southern Highlands. All of these storm cells are moving slowly to the north-east, so they might come to give us a bit of attention later in the afternoon or early evening.
There’s no warnings current for the Central Tablelands or Greater Sydney areas, although if that situation changes we’ll try to let you know promptly.
Meanwhile, keep a weather eye out. J
