Weather in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth: More rain


Heavy rain, thunderstorms and flash flooding could hit large parts of Australia this weekend, with more rain expected after a week of wet weather.

A high pressure system in the center south of the country is drawing moisture from the atmosphere, which will turn to rain over the next few days as it meets a pool of cold air at higher levels.

NSW and Victoria are in for a soaking, while southern WA, eastern SA and southern Queensland will also see significant dips.

The northern half of the country will see some showers but remain mostly dry, while Tasmania will experience cool and cloudy conditions but avoid significant rainfall.

Rain in the eastern half of the country will move from SA towards the coast, hitting Melbourne on Friday and Sydney late on Friday evening.

Sydneysiders should take an umbrella if they venture out this weekend, and those further south in the Illawarra and the South Coast should heed flood warnings.

Sydneysiders should take an umbrella if they venture out this weekend, and those further south in the Illawarra and the South Coast should heed flood warnings.

Already saturated catchments in NSW and Victoria could quickly flood, particularly in the Illawarra and South Coast NSW regions where weekend rainfall totals could exceed 150mm.

The Bureau of Meteorology’s Sarah Scully said an upper-level trough would join a coastal trough over NSW on Saturday and «lift» rainfall.

«Light to heavy rainfall is expected across the southern half of NSW,» Ms Scully said.

“We expect to issue a severe weather warning as the grounds are really wet in eastern parts of NSW due to the recent rains.

Sea surface temperatures remain the warmest globally since April 2023, influencing historical modeling to predict weather events such as El Nino or La Nina.

The bureau said sea surface temperatures continued to rise, with record temperatures in February, March and April.

The Pacific Ocean is likely to return to a neutral pattern (known as the El Nino Southern Oscillation, or ENSO) – neither El Nino nor La Nina – by June.

There are also predictions that La Nina will return in late winter, but the predictions won’t be firm enough to make a statement until after May.

«El Nino and La Nina forecasts made in early autumn tend to have lower accuracy than forecasts made at other times of the year,» the bureau said.

«Because current global ocean conditions have not been previously observed, conclusions about how ENSO may develop in 2024, based on past events, may not be reliable.»
