Huge swathes of Australia’s east coast will be battered by thunderstorms and heavy downpours as autumn sets in with an endless blanket of rain.

Large parts of NSW and southeast Queensland will face heavy rain from Tuesday until next week, with up to 20mm expected to fall on Sydney every day until Sunday. 

A ‘significant rainfall event’ will also become more likely through central and southern parts of the Sunshine State. 

La Nina has started to ease but it is still expected to influence Australia’s climate in early autumn and is typically associated with above average rainfall for eastern and northern Australia,’ BOM meteorologist Sarah Scully said. 

‘Good news for many communities across southeast Queensland, who are celebrating widespread totals of 40 to 70mm of rain to 9am this morning.’

Ballon is set to record 93mm of rain, while 108mm will fall further south on Upper Missabotti.

The Bureau said there’s potential for widespread totals of 50-100mm of rain with isolated falls up to 150mm through Queensland’s southern interior.

Ms Scully said showers and storms will increase on Wednesday in southeast Queensland as the ‘surface trough interacts with an upper-level low’.

‘Unfortunately significant rainfall is likely to miss the region between Mackay and Wide Bay, where rainfall has been below average for some time,’ she said.

Thunderstorms will spread into northwest NSW on Wednesday before travelling further south.

‘Showers and storms are continuing into Thursday again with potentially heavy rainfall totals,’ Ms Scully said.  

The wild weather could also spread into Victoria and parts of South Australia.

The high pressure system lingering on the Tasman Sea offers the chance of up to 100mm falling for the remainder of the week in Sydney alone. 

The Harbour City can expect moderate temperatures ranging from lows in the high teens to mid 20Cs.

Melbournians will be slightly cooler, with minimums in the around 15C, with maximums sitting close to 25C.
