Four states hit with severe storm warnings as wild weather continues

A severe weather warning is in place for four states this morning.

Parts of Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia, South Australia have been told to brace for heavy rain, flash flooding and the chance of hail.

“Unseasonal rainfall” will be seen across eastern WA as a stagnant trough slams into an “unusually moist air mass”.

As it does it will increase the risk of flash flooding and large hail.
