Heavy rain is expected across much of the east coast of Australia over the coming week, but there is cautious optimism that the Northern Rivers won’t cop the worst of the falls this time.

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) is expecting widespread falls of more than 50mm for parts of southern inland Queensland and much of NSW by Friday, with some areas being affected by the end of today (Tuesday).

‘Showers and thunderstorms will increase, particularly over southern South Australia (including Adelaide), and extend into north-west Victoria and the New South Wales South Coast,” BOM forecaster Jonathan How told the ABC.

Tomorrow is expected to be the first big peak of rainfall for inland areas as the rain is expected to move further into Queensland and central NSW.

Moderate to major flooding is expected in already flooded rivers in NSW and southern Queensland.

A low-pressure system is expected to form heading into the weekend, sending more showers and rain across southern Queensland and much of NSW.
