Severe thunderstorms can strike at any time.
Severe Thunderstorms can produce large hail, damaging wind, lightning and heavy rainfall, which can cause death, injury and damage to property. The Bureau of Meteorology issues Severe Thunderstorm Warnings for these phenomena. Damaging winds and heavy rainfall can also be produced in other weather systems, such as in a monsoon or an East Coast Low, which can cause extensive damage to property and turn debris into dangerous missiles as well as producing dangerous surf conditions. For these systems, the Bureau of Meteorology issues Severe Weather Warnings.
