Much of the New South Wales coast is in for a wet week, potentially the wettest week in a year, bringing the threat of flooding, according to weatherzone.com.au.
But the far north coast should manage to avoid the worst of the weather for a change.
‘This week’s trough system should bring falls in excess of 100mm to an area from Tweed Heads to Merimbula by the weekend. The wettest area looks like being between Port Macquarie and Nowra. Some areas have a chance to accumulate more than 300mm by the weekend, more than double the monthly average,’ Weatherzone meteorologist Brett Dutschke said.
More than 50mm has already fallen in the Northern Rivers since the weekend.
‘Over the coming few days this trough will deepen just offshore and slide slowly south, taking bursts of heavy rain with it. It will be fuelled by warmer-than-average seas,’ Mr Dutschke said.
