Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane weather: Wild weather is not yet over


Major weather update after heavy rains and wild winds battered NSW with over 100 calls for help in last 24 hours

  • Wild weather system over the south coast of NSW
  • It is expected to head to the coast on Monday

Heavy rains and high winds have battered coastal areas in southern NSW and Sydney, with authorities continuing to monitor the situation closely as they cautiously lift a severe weather warning.

The SES received 133 calls for help in parts of the state on Sunday morning, including reports of fallen trees and branches, as well as requests to help with leaking roofs and water damage.

Flash flooding hit some roads in Sydney overnight as heavy rain fell in parts of the city.

At Point Perpendicular, near Nowra, about 100 millimeters of rain fell in 24 hours.

A severe weather warning for the Illawarra and south coast was lifted just before 10am on Sunday, but a low-pressure system continues to hover over the coast between Nowra and Narooma.

“The immediate threat of severe weather has passed, but the situation will continue to be monitored,” the Bureau of Meteorology said.

“Heavy rain and damaging winds remain a possibility over coastal areas through Sunday, and a severe thunderstorm warning could be issued if necessary.”

SES Deputy Commissioner Nicole Hogan said authorities will remain alert, especially over the next 24 hours when the region’s weather could quickly turn wild.

“The threat from this weather system is not over yet,” she said.

“We are still seeing rain and although it will lessen during the day, gale force winds are forecast for the coastal areas of Illawarra, Batemans and Eden.”

The SES said there was minor flooding at Canowindra early Sunday morning.

River rises have been detected on the Belubula River and Mandagery Creek.

Authorities said the weather could change soon, bringing flash floods and high winds

Rainfall in the region could be between 80mm and 120mm in some areas, but is expected to decrease through Monday as the weather system moves offshore.

Further south, Melbourne is also facing a wet week with showers forecast through Wednesday and maximums around 20C.

Similar forecasts also apply to Canberra, Adelaide and Hobart.

To the north, clouds would diminish in Brisbane and good weather is forecast during the week with a high of 27C on Wednesday.

Darwin will be warm and sunny with maxima of up to 35C.

On the west coast, Perth has a wonderful week ahead with good weather and peaks around 20 degrees.
