One day after the mercury soared above 30C (86F).
Residents of a sleepy town on the southern coast of NSW (New South Wales) were treated to scenes resembling a winter wonderland after a freak hail storm blanketed a popular beach in snow only a day after the mercury soared above 30 degrees.
Local Allen Coulthard, 27, captured some of the spectacular scenes at Malua Bay Beach last night as his children used a body board to glide along the seemingly snow-blanketed shore.
“It was like a normal sunny day and I then it became overcast and all of a sudden,” he told ninemsn.
“We were in the middle of having dinner and then it started hailing. No warning at all.”
“They were looking around, kids were playing and people were throwing ice balls,” Mr Coulthard said.
The deluge of “marble-size” hail was even more unusual because it came after a day when the temperature crossed 30 degrees.
