Commuters have faced a soggy journey home on Tuesday afternoon, with streets flooded and train services cancelled after thunderstorms and heavy rain passed over Sydney.

Flash flooding inundated major roads in Strathfield, Bexley and the Blue Mountains and residential streets across the city after the Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe thunderstorm warning for a wide area of central and eastern NSW, extending to the Sydney Metropolitan region. (See chart below.)

Peter Zmijewski, a senior bureau forecaster, said the storms were likely to continue for the next couple of hours: “There are quite a few cells.”

For the Sydney region, the bureau updated its detailed warning just before 6pm to state that while severe thunderstorms in the warning area had temporarily eased, “further severe thunderstorms are still possible”. Between 5pm and 6pm Marrickville had 33 millimetres of rain, while Richmond had 28mm. In the city, about 10mm fell in the half hour after 5pm, while a range of sites in the south-west including Camden registered more than 20 millimetres this afternoon. The storms are affecting flights in and out of Sydney Airport – which collected 25 millimetres – with delays expected. Lightning strikes at Blacktown caused “major delays” to trains, with services cancelled between Quakers Hill and Riverstone and replacement buses being arranged. Passengers were advised to allow extra travel time on the northern line and western line.”??????” Thunderstorms @SydneyAirport is having an affect on flights this eve… https://t苏州夜场招聘/bYVlvna14C via @S118869pic.twitter苏州夜总会招聘/E46L8ubNzD???
