A severe thunderstorm warning issued by the Bureau of Meteorology for Canberra and Queanbeyan has been cancelled.
At 7.10pm, the Bureau of Meteorology issued a warning for damaging winds forecast to affect Belconnen, Canberra Civic, Queanbeyan, Canberra Airport, South Canberra, Weston Creek and Woden Valley.
The warning was cancelled at 8.24pm once storms had passed, but the Bureau said the situation would continue to be monitored and further warnings would be issued if necessary.
Canberrans were kept on their toes by the see-sawing potential weather conditions throughout Tuesday, with many fearing a repeat of the hailstorm that hit the capital in January, leaving thousands of cars and roofs smashed.
There were thousands of call-outs to the ACT SES during and after the storm, which was the largest single incident in the organisation's history.
Several car dealerships in the Canberra area were seen moving cars inside on Tuesday in preparation for the potential hailstorm.
The rough conditions were brought on by a trough that is moving across NSW and out to sea.
Up to eight millimetres of rain has been forecast for Canberra on Tuesday.
The passing of the storm is expected to reduce humidity levels in the capital, along with overnight minimum temperatures.
"The humidity will wash away and conditions will generally tend to dry out a bit," Bureau of Meteorology forecast David Wilke said.
"That humidity is being dragged out to the east and it will bring relief for people getting sick of the humidity and the warm nights."
The overnight minimum temperature was almost 18 degrees on Monday night, but is expected to drop to 13 degrees on Tuesday night.
Drier conditions are expected on Wednesday with a top of 24, before rising to 26 on Thursday and 27 on Friday.
