The Bureau of Meteorology says there is now a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for damaging winds, heavy rainfall and large hailstones for people in the Central West Slopes and Plains and parts of Central Tablelands, Southern Tablelands, South West Slopes and Lower Western Forecast Districts.

There is a Flood Watch for the Orara, Bellinger, Hastings, Manning, Paterson and Williams Rivers. After days of rain, local soils may be saturated, requiring increased vigilance about the potential for flooding.

With thunderstorms expected to continue over large parts of the state over the coming days, residents are urged to keep up with the latest warnings from the Bureau.
