WATCH: Hail blankets the Southern Downs like snow

WARWICK may have missed out on the severe thunderstorm today, but the brunt of it was felt not too far away.

Areas of the Southern Downs experienced incredible hail falls, which at first glance looked a lot like snow.

Jo Harmer managed to capture incredible vision of the storm as hail fell on her car in Thulimbah, about half an hour south of the Rose City.

The Summit also saw some decent hail falls, as Tobi Budster snapped a great picture of hail scattered around his yard.
