Thunderstorms are expected to batter parts of New South Wales as ‘dynamic conditions’ are set to trigger wild weather.

Flash flooding, heavy downpours and ‘large hail’ are expected to wreak havoc on large parts of central and northern New South Wales on Monday.

Meteorologist Rob Sharpe warned that the state could experience ‘some of the worst thunderstorms of the season’ with hail bigger than 5 centimetres.

‘When combined, the dynamic conditions could trigger ‘some of the worst thunderstorms of the season,’ Mr Sharpe told The Sydney Morning Herald

​’The worst storms will be spread across the north west and central west slopes and plains districts in NSW.

‘Storms in these districts are likely to see large hail and have a significant risk of producing damaging wind gusts above 90km/h and giant hail greater than 5 centimetres in diameter,’ he said.

Higgins Storm Chasing warned that ‘Monday and Tuesday’s thunderstorms are forecast to be severe and potentially dangerous’.

‘In the extreme risk area, supercells are likely to develop which could produce giant hail over 5cm, destructive winds over 125km/h, very heavy rainfall, flash flooding, frequent dangerous lightning and a risk of a tornado,’ Higgins Storm Chasing said on its website.
