A SEVERE weather warning has been issued for much of northern NSW with 90-kilometres-an-hour winds and marble-sized hailstones recorded on the coast.
The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) issued the warning just after 8pm (AEDT) on Saturday for people living in the Northern Rivers, Northern Tablelands and parts of the North West Slopes and Plains.
The bureau warned that "severe thunderstorms" were forecast to produce large hailstones and heavy rainfall, leading to flash flooding and damaging winds in the area over several hours.
Locations which may be affected include Lismore, Tenterfield, Inverell, Ballina, Casino and Kyogle.
At 8pm, gusts reaching 90km/h were recorded in Woodburn near the Queensland coast with marble-sized hail also lashing the region.
The wild weather was predicted to move northeast towards Ballina before moving out to sea later on Saturday night.
