    Australia's Summer Turned To Autumn In About 30 Seconds

    Autumn arrives with a monster storm.

    Today is the first day of autumn, and in Sydney the seasons changed in real time at 3:45pm.

    On a ferry and barely outrunning what looks like will be a massive storm. #sydney


    Summer has ended! Storm brewing, then down came the rain #storm #sydneystorm

    A massive storm rolled in...

    3.30pm. Shelf cloud over Maroubra as the storm front hits Sydney. #sydneystorm #Sydney #Australia #iPhone6 @smh

    It was pretty intense.

    Remember Independence Day? #sydneystorm #sydstorm

    The storm front moved in from the south.

    Roll cloud rolling across Botany Bay marks a strong gusty cool change! #SydneyStorms

    And all the way up the Northern Beaches.

    Planes were diverted.
