WEATHER: EAST COAST LOW LATEST

East coast low

We are now entering the worst period, as the east coast low reaches its peak and begins to track south along the coast. Heavy rain causing flooding, strong to gale force winds and huge dangerous seas and swell will track south overnight into tomorrow. It’s expected to reach the Hunter by Saturday afternoon. Once the centre of the low passes, conditions will ease quickly in the north. The system will clear during Sunday. Boating and surfing is not recommended, until the centre of the low passes.

COAST NOT SO GOLDEN AS WET WEATHER ROLLS IN

Bid farewell to the sunshine and cloudless skies, at least for the next few days… there’s nothing but rain, rain and more rain on the way for the Gold Coast. Be warned, though, today’s dreary conditions are just a SMALL TASTE of things to come.   Read More »

WEATHER WATCH: TAKE CARE AS WILD WEATHER BATTERS THE COAST

An intense east coast low is forming off the New South Wales Mid North Coast and will unleash the majority of its energy between the Central Coast and Manning, with the Hunter taking the biggest hit. A severe weather warning has been issued and flooding is expected on the Paterson and Williams Rivers. Localised flash flooding is also likely, while huge dangerous swell will develop with gale force winds reaching 100km/h along the Newcastle coast. The low is expected to retrogress or move back towards the coast which will intensify conditions. The wild weather will ease on Wednesday. Take care. Read More »

WEATHER: RAIN ON THE WAY

We’ve had a very warm week, ahead of a rain band that has already delivered record-breaking falls across parts of South Australia. Some locations have recorded their best April rain in 100 years of records. The cloud cover associated with this system could be seen in Newcastle and the Hunter today. Tomorrow it will spread further north and rain will start to fall Saturday night, before moving across the NBN broadcast region during Sunday. On Monday, an east coast low is expected to form and it could be a nasty one. East coast lows are at their most dangerous when they retrogress or move in a westerly direction back towards the coast once formed. The longer they sit on the coast the more damage they can do, especially if all its energy is released over one area, something that happens if ... Read More »

WEATHER: SATURATED SATURDAY BEFORE MARVELLOUS MONDAY

Terrigal

It was a very wet Easter at times, but as expected, it all blew over allowing us to dry out before the long weekend’s end. We squeezed in a great day before a big line of storms made its way across the west this afternoon. This is a pre-frontal trough. The front behind it has lots of cold air wrapped up in it. This will make sure the Autumn weather roller coaster stays on track. Get ready for some cold nights and cooler days. Once the front moves through we won’t see much rain. It will be clear and cool across the region until costal showers develop at the end of the week. Read More »

WEATHER: A LITTLE INLAND RAIN IS ON THE WAY

Weather Borders ranges

The inland areas of the North West are still very dry and the major catchments are very low, so rain of any kind is welcome out west and there is some on the way. Afternoon showers and storms are going to become a feature across the region in the coming days. That’s thanks to a stalled inland trough that is feeding off very consistent onshore winds, which have been creating partly cloudy skies and scattered showers along the coast over the next few days. Rain totals won’t be big and there’ll be no impact on the major catchments, but it will help with current crops in the ground. Read More »

GOLD COAST FLOOD CLEAN UP CONTINUES

Emergency services have been flat out cleaning up around the Gold Coast after yesterday’s deluge. Volunteers worked into the night and all through today, mopping up at more than 100 homes. Despite the efforts of emergency services and neighbours, many low lying properties were inundated. The SES says it’s a reminder to residents to clean out their gutters, prepare sandbags and secure backyard items before severe storms hit. Read More »
