Shocking moment tennis ball-sized hailstones SMASH through a window in violent ...

Huge hailstones were filmed smashing through a window during a wild storm as houses were battered by 100kmh winds on Saturday.

Hail pummelled the home at Springfield Lakes, south of Brisbane's CBD, as dangerous supercell thunderstorms moved through southeast Queensland.

The home owner can be heard shouting as the massive hailstones pelted his house and backyard before shattering the glass window.  

Many Queenslanders have had their home windows smashed, cars damaged and gardens covered in hail but experts warned more storms would grip the state. 

There's more wild weather on the way today with storms in regional Queensland and NSW that could potentially kill exposed livestock.

The Bureau of Meteorology on Saturday warned of 'life-threatening' conditions in Queensland.

'These thunderstorms are a significant threat to property and life,' the bureau tweeted. 

Hailstones as big as 14cm were reported at Logan, south of Brisbane, while hail up to 7cm in diameter fell at Ipswich, Gatton and Adare. 

The Bureau of Meteorology's Michael Gray told Daily Mail Australia the fast-moving supercells were caused by a combination of factors.     

'We had some warm moist northerly winds bringing a lot of water in from the coast and an upper trough from NSW,' he explained. 

'We had a combination of all these conditions at the surface and some very cold conditions up high and those two things mixed together to get the giant hailstones.'

The meteorologist said rainfall remained low in comparison to other storms at about 20 to 30 mm.

'The trade off for not getting that much rainfall was that giant hail,' he said.    

Emergency warnings were issued for parts of southern southeast Queensland, including Brisbane's south, Ispwich, Logan and the Gold Coast.

People were urged to move cars undercover, secure loose outdoor items and stay indoors.  

Roads were clogged with traffic while car windows were left shattered due to the large hailstones.  

Three people - including two children - were trapped in their Ipswich home after a tree reportedly collapsed on the roof, the Courier Mail reported.

The trio freed themselves before emergency services arrived at the home at 4pm.
