Just when you thought we could pack the winter jumpers away in favour of some sunshine, the BLEEDIN’ low pressure systems come in and RUIN EVERYTHING.
Yep, according to the Bureau of Meteorology, Sydney is in for a three-day smackdown after a “complex” low-pressure system forced poor weather conditions until the WEEKEND.
The rain chart posted by NSW SES shows heavy rainfall of more than 50mm falling in parts of southern and western Queensland and along the east coast of New South Wales.

Sky News dubbed it a “major rain event”. “There is potential for more than 60 millimetres,” Brett Dutschke, senior meteorologist at Weatherzone, told Fairfax Media.
“The heaviest period is most likely [Wednesday] afternoon and evening.”
The news has even prompted NSW SES to post flooding tips for residents who could be affected.
