Wet weather for NSW, Victoria for the next seven days

Residents in flood-ravaged communities across New South Wales are being warned to stay vigilant as the state faces days of rain.
A cold front is bringing “persistent showers and storms” to parts of eastern Australia, the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) said.
NSW will bear the brunt of the wet weather, but rain and storms are also forecast for VictoriaTasmania and as far north as Queensland.
“Over the next four days parts of the NSW coast could see up to 100mm of rain,” BoM said.

“Check forecasts, monitor warnings.”

Senior Meteorologist Jonathan How said the wet weather will last for next seven days.
“It is the news that no-one in NSW wants to hear right now…across eastern NSW, there’s plenty of wet weather to come,” he told Today.

“We’re set for another seven days of showers, rain and storms kicking off from today really anywhere north of Wollongong up towards Sydney and Northern Rivers as well.”

Rain activity is expected to increase from Thursday, with heavy rain occurring over recovering flood-zones in north-eastern NSW by Friday.
“We’re expecting over the next seven days 50 to 100mm but isolated places could see 200mm fall from tomorrow and into the weekend,” Mr How said.
“Sydney is currently experiencing its fourth wettest March on record. This upcoming rainfall could push it into the top three.”
Weatherzone said flooding is possible.
“At this stage, parts of Queensland and NSW will be affected and some areas are likely to see heavy rain, possibly enough to cause flooding,” it said.
This is what the weather is doing around the nation’s capitals today.
