The system will bring heavy rainfall into eastern Victoria, southeastern NSW and eastern Tasmania until at least Friday.
The hybrid cyclone is expected to result from the collision of two low-pressure systems – one near the NSW-Victoria border and one off the north coast of NSW.
“These two lows are on track to collide and combine to form a dynamic and dangerous system called a hybrid cyclone,” a Weatherzone statement said.
Most extreme weather should occur off the coast, but weather is still expected to bring up to 200 millimeters of rain in areas between southeastern NSW and eastern Tasmania in the coming days.
The system is not predicted to reach Sydney, which is expected to have solid blue skies for the next few days.
After Tuesday’s rain, Sydneysiders can expect sunny skies and 27 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday.
Warmer temperatures and clear skies are expected to last through the weekend, but rain is forecast to return to Sydney on Monday as a new weather system makes its way across the state.
Meanwhile, residents of NSW have been told to expect less than ideal conditions on supermarket shelves.
During Tuesday’s flood update, Cooke said the exact financial damage to the agricultural sector from this flood will become better known in the coming weeks.
“If you’ve affected not only the actual harvest, but also our ability to transport it and get it off the farm, through processing and onto the supermarket shelf, those effects will probably be felt at some point or another. be,” said the NSW Emergency Services Secretary.
“So we are very aware of the impact on farmers. We will have to continue to assess that damage in the coming weeks as the water recedes, and we will continue to assist farmers during this time.”
Sydney has had 21.2 millimeters of rain from 9 a.m. Monday to 9 a.m. Tuesday.
