Nation set for drenching, with flood warnings in place for NSW, Queensland and more


Australia is set for a drenching over the next three days, as a “rain bomb” falls over the eastern states.

Parts of New South Wales are forecast to receive “more than a month’s worth of rain over three days”, the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) said.
Flood warnings are in place for northern NSW and Queensland, with residents living close to the states’ border urged to prepare for heavy rain and possible flooding now.

Parts of the Northern Territory, the Eastern Desert Areas in WA, and South Australia’s North West and North East Pastoral Districts are also on flood watch.

Heavy rain and thunderstorms are forecast for Sydney, with a high of 25C expected.

Sydney could see rainfall reach 35mm to 65mm in total, with the heaviest falls likely on Wednesday.

Melbourne is looking at potentially 35mm to 75mm, with rain heaviest on Friday.

Brisbane is looking at a range between 35mm and 70mm, with rain heaviest on Thursday and the weekend looking pretty clear.

Canberra is already close to its monthly average rainfall for November, and looks like it could add as much as 55mm to 115mm.
