New South Wales and Victoria are being told to brace for a multi-day rain event, as a cold front and low pressure system sweep across the nation.
It comes after an icy cold blast yesterday dusted parts of Western Australia with a rare flurry of snow.
The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) has issued more than a dozen flood warnings across the two states in anticipation of the wet weather.
The BoM said “widespread rain and the chance of storms” will impact inland NSW from Thursday to Saturday.

“Increasing showers” are forecast for Sydney from Friday, with up to five mm of rain predicted to fall.
Moderate to major flood warnings are in place around Dubbo and Bourke.
“Moderate falls are possible about the western slopes, which may lead to renewed river rises,” the BoM wrote.
Residents in NSW can stay across flood updates here, while Victorian warnings will be issued here.
The wet weather comes less than a week after a “complex” low pressure system swept across the country pounding the south-east with heavy rain and extreme winds.
Meanwhile, Western Australia’s south-west corner has been dusted with snow.
Parts of the state have been shivering through it’s coldest weather of the year, due to a polar blast of air.
“Perth had its coldest day of 2022 to date yesterday with temps in the single-digit range for all but a few hours and a maximum of just 12.1C,” Weatherzone said.
