Rain, winds and heavy surf likely along NSW coast as another low looms

Much of the NSW coast can expect another bout of heavy rain, strong winds and also damaging surf by early next week as another low pressure system forms offshore.

While the timing and location of such a system remain unclear, the presence of a low-pressure trough will soak Sydney with as much as 60 millimetres of rain on Sunday, with extensive falls elsewhere.

More to come: a huge swell pounded Sydney beaches last week and another bout of damaging surf may be ahead in coming days.

“It’s a little unclear where this system will actually fall. It may not become really intense but whatever the case, we will see showers along the coast,” Helen Kirkup, a Bureau of Meteorology forecaster, said.

Along the coast, rainfall totals from the event should reach 30-70 millimetres, starting from Saturday in the north. Sydney can expect 4-8 millimetres of rain, with the chance of a late-morning thunderstorm.
