Headed to Luddenham as a base start for the storms approaching and rapidly becoming severe. Traffic stopped me heading onto the M4 so I had not choice but to bear the brunt of the storms and hail 2 to 3cm in diameter (estimation). On Elizabeth Drive towards Kemps Creek, a massive lightning bolt hit what ma have been a tree as a fresh branch had impeded traffic. A barrage of massive lightning bolts occurred behind me and I was not game to stop and film in that environment.
The edge of the core produced hail perhaps to 1cm in diameter.
