Waterspouts spotted off the Central Coast 9th April 2013

Screen Shot 2013-04-09 at 10.47.11 PMWaterspouts were spotted off Newcastle and Central Coast this afternoon spawning a severe thunderstorm warning for winds. The main concerns were that strong winds associated with the waterspouts making landfall may cause localised damage as well as become life threatening in nature.

More waterspouts are possible this week as an onshore airstream persists with cold temperatures aloft.



  • Sweet video! I receieved an sms from my friend Dan that had a photo of a waterspout sent to him from a friend in Sawtell on the 7’th of April. I’ll see if he can get permission to post it up.
