If you missed out on the snowfields this season, some Sydney suburbs could be the next best thing.

With wild weather ripping through parts of Sydney, no one would blame you if you mistakenly thought it was still winter.

Parts of the city's north and west were blanketed in hail on Wednesday afternoon as the mercury took a Spring-defiant turn and plummeted to 10 degrees Celsius.

It comes less than a month after severe thunderstorms swept through NSW, covering some roads in so much hail that residents were able to practise their snowboarding skills.
