Sydney mesmerised by stunning, rare cloud formation to bring in 2019

They say every cloud has a silver lining.

While a severe weather warning was issued for parts of Sydney on Tuesday, the up-side for storm-chasers and nature photographers was a rare set of cloud formations rolling across the east coast.

Scattered storms made their way across Sydney’s western suburbs and the Illawarra region after lunch today, and large hailstorms peppered the Blue Mountains.

Consequently, a rare cloud formation known as mammatus hung over Sydney – capturing the attention and imagination of many on social media.

According to the ABC, Mammatus clouds are “a cellular pattern of pouches hanging underneath the base of a cloud, and are generally associated with storm activity.”

While the BOM has eased the storm warning, areas of Sydney are still expected to be hit by heavy rain this evening.

So get your cars undercover and your cameras out*!
