Thinking about ditching your wet weather gear for a few months as we get into Spring?
After enjoying some sunny weather that saw plenty of people heading to the beach over the long weekend, we’re now being warned to get ready for a BIG dump of rain in the coming days.
Australia’s east coast is about to cop a stack of wet weather that will go some way to make up for having just gone through the driest September on record.
Forecasters say a much-needed downpour is predicted across most of NSW starting Wednesday running through to the weekend.
It’s hoped the so called ‘rain bomb’ will help bring some relief to our drought-stricken farmers.
Sky News Weather meteorologist Rob Sharpe told news.com.au:
‘It will really build into NSW on Thursday and as the upper trough moves pretty much on top of the low pressure system there could be areas of rain right across eastern parts of NSW,’
‘As we move into Friday there’s a chance we’ll see a low pressure system developing close to the coast and there could be some powerful winds associated with that.’
Sydney may get around half a month’s rain in three days with up to 15 millilitres expected on Thursday. The heavy rain is forecast to continue on Friday with up to 10mm expected.
