Australia weather: NSW, Queensland, Victoria to endure week of rain and storms


Half of Australia to be drenched by torrential rain that will last a WEEK with dire warning of severe thunderstorms and flooding – here’s the seven day forecast near you

  • Australians in three states set to be drenched with torrential rain to last a week
  • People in NSW, Queensland and Victoria told to prepare for the wild weather 
  • Heavy rain, strong winds, thunderstorms and even hail set to hit the east coast 


Australians in three states are set to be drenched by torrential rain predicted to last a week amid warnings of supercell thunderstorms and heavy flooding. 

Meteorologists have warned of a wet week ahead for most of the country with heavy rain, thunderstorms, hail and even snow forecast to hit the east coast until the end of the week.

Jonathon How from the Bureau of Meteorology said New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria will experience ‘plenty of thunderstorms’ due to intensify mid-week. 

He said eastern NSW and inland southeast Queensland would receive most of the wild weather with flood warnings issued for all three states.

‘Severe storms are likely in the Balonne shire and Goondiwindi region, more broadly possible over southern inland Queensland. Main risks with severe storms tomorrow will be heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding and damaging wind gusts,’ the Bureau of Meteorology Queensland said in a tweet. 

In NSW, intense storms are due to roll across the Tablelands region and hit Coffs Harbour with showers to continue in Sydney, travelling from the west to the east.  

The meteorologist said storms would fire up on Monday with 20 to 30mm due to hit all of Queensland including Brisbane and the Gold Coast. 

He said 20 to 30mm of rain would fall across Brisbane and would extend to the north-east corner of Victoria and NSW. 

The wild weather is expected to ramp up on Wednesday with intense storms to hit Queensland state-wide and a cold front in Victoria.  

On Thursday, a burst of tropical rain will travel along the eastern sea board from Queensland down to Victoria with the potential of flash flooding in all three states.

Mr How said Sydneysiders can expect temperatures in the low 20s with showers to continue but less storm activity at the weekend.

Queensland is predicted to be dry by Sunday however Victorians have been warned to rug up for a cold and showery few days.

The Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe thunderstorm warning for damaging winds, large hailstones and heavy rains across NSW on Sunday. 

‘Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce damaging winds, large hailstones and heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding in the warning area over the next several hours,’ it read. 

People in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria should prepare for 'plenty of thunderstorms' due to intensify mid-week according to meteorologists (pictured, rain in Sydney)

‘Locations which may be affected include Grafton, Wollongong, Nowra, Goulburn, Tamworth and more.’

The Bureau recommends residents to unplug computers and appliances, move vehicles under cover and secure loose items in their house, yard and balconies. 

It’s a similar story in Queensland, with severe thunderstorms to continue over the southern interior and borders areas of the state.  

People in the Darling Downs and Granite Belt and parts of Central Highlands and Coalfields, Wide Bay and Burnett and Maranoa and Warrego Forecast Districts have been warned to prepare for damaging winds, hail and heavy rainfall.
