Sydney and Melbourne brace themselves for destructive winds and thunderstorms

The east coast of Australia embarks on heavy rain, hail and harmful wind, while a heavy thunderstorm rages through the region.

Sydney and Melbourne will be the victims of the slow moving storm on Tuesday, while the low pressure trough moves west to east.

Predictors have warned of golf ball sized hailstones that hit both cities.

Victoria will see the seriousness of the afternoon before coming to New South Wales mid-afternoon, meteorologist Felix Levesque told Daily Mail Australia.

“There is a fairly high probability of a thunderstorm for much of eastern Victoria,” said Mr. Levesque.

“It should start in the middle of the morning, but Victoria will certainly see the more intense storms in the afternoon.”

There is a risk of lightning in the region, but new forest fires are unlikely. Levesque said the greatest concern is the destructive winds and hail.

A wind warning has been issued for Port Phillip, Central Coast and East Gippsland Coast

A severe thunderstorm warning has been issued for the north of NSW from Grafton to Bourke. Further storm warnings are expected to be issued later in the day for the rest of the state.

A moderate flood warning has also been issued for the Castlereagh River.

Sydneysiders will have to pull out their umbrellas again, because showers are expected from late in the afternoon.

While Mr. Levesque said that heavy eruptions were expected, the rainfall will not be nearly as intense as last week.

“These are rather isolated, some areas can see up to 20-30 mm, while others will see less,” he said.

Residents have been encouraged to prepare for the storms by moving vehicles away from trees and securing loose items around their homes.

Despite the harsh conditions, Sydney remains warm and humid on Tuesday with temperatures around 30 ° C.

The wild weather is expected to spread to New South Wales on Wednesday afternoon (flooded streets pictured on Sunday)

The storms come as the cleanup continues after the wild weather last week, with streets turning into rivers of heavy rain showers and trees uprooted by the strong wind

Melbourne will see cooler temperatures of around 20-23 ° C throughout the week.

“From Wednesday onwards, the weather should calm down as the trough continues to move to the east and off the coast, it will start to affect the east a little less,” said Mr. Levesque.

The storms come as the cleanup continues after the wild weather last week, with streets turning into rivers of heavy rain showers and trees uprooted by the strong wind.

NSW received a record rainfall earlier in the week, with parts of the northern rivers, mid-north coast, central coast, Sydney, Blue Mountains and Illawarra falling up to 550 mm.

Hundreds of residents are still without power after a major power outage last week.

Residents have been encouraged to prepare for the storms by moving vehicles away from trees and securing loose items around their homes.

Meanwhile, there is a chance that a cyclone will develop in the Gulf of Caprentaria near the Northern Territory.

A tropical low point has gained momentum and threatens to hit the Northern Territory by the weekend, but it looks like it will hit underpopulated parts of the coastline, Levesque said.

There is good news for Sydneysiders, because the bad weather is expected to disappear on Wednesday morning.

The mercury is expected to rise to a comfortable 29 ° C on Wednesday afternoon, giving beach lovers a chance for a quick dive.

Those further south are not as fortunate as the wet weather seems to linger during the week.

Powerful thunderstorms, large hailstones, destructive winds and heavy rain will hit Sydney (dark clouds on Monday afternoon) and Melbourne this week

The rest of the week it is cloudy with light wind.

There is a 60 percent chance of storms that hit Darwin all week with the chance of a thunderstorm, possibly severe with harmful wind.

Queensland has sunshine in store on Tuesday but can expect storms on Wednesday. The bad storm conditions should disappear by Thursday, but rain will linger throughout the weekend and early next week.

Hobart has a good chance of showers for the rest of the week before it starts to disappear from Saturday.
