Residents on Australia’s east coast should prepare to be battered with torrential downpours as a gigantic rain bomb threatens weekend plans for thousands.   

Experts have forecast heavy thunderstorms for parts of New South Wales and Victoria after a week of hot and humid conditions. 

Temperatures are expected to remain high in Sydney with a likely storm on Saturday, as cool onshore winds drive showers over the east coast. 

Western Victoria is due to be dominated by severe thunderstorms with showers to travel across the southwest, central and northeast on Friday.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Jackson Browne said a low pressure system and a trough would extend into the east and south of the country in the next few days.

Mr Browne said thunderstorms could be expected on the east coast on Thursday afternoon with warnings of strong winds and even hail. 

He said storms would lash Victoria, southern NSW and possibly even northern Tasmania with residents urged to monitor weather warnings across their state. 

Weatherzone meteorologist Jess Miskelly told Daily Mail Australia the wet conditions would extend well into next week, with some brief reprieve in Sydney on Sunday. 

Ms Miskelly said while storms were currently lingering in western parts of NSW and Victoria, they were due to shift east to the central areas on Friday. 

Storms over the coastal parts of NSW including Sydney are due to hit on Saturday, while a weak southerly change might bring some sunshine on Sunday.

However, moisture from ex-tropical cyclone Tiffany is due to bring tropical moisture and lashings of rain to NSW from next Wednesday.  

The category one storm was tracking eastwards on Thursday towards the south Katherine, where forecasters say it will weaken to a tropical low. 

‘Once the system weakens below tropical cyclone intensity, strong gusts and heavy rainfall remain possible over areas close to the system track as it moves further inland,’ the Bureau of Meteorology warned. 

Ms Miskelly said the weather system was due to drift southeast and be pulled into low-hanging troughs sitting over inland areas next week. 

She said Queenslanders could expect some moisture on Sunday, when the trough drifts northeast bringing humid nights and muggy days.

Katherine can expect 15-20mm of rain on Thursday with a further 50-150mm on the weekend accompanied by strong winds.

Darwin will also be hit with heavy downpours over the weekend with 40-90mm predicted on Friday, with showers to last into the weekend.

Canberra will also be hit with at least 10mm of rain on Friday, with temperatures to remain around the 25C mark, with a high of 30C on Saturday.  

Western Australia has been hit with scorching temperatures of 48C in inland areas due to peak on Thursday, as Friday and the weekend due to cool slightly. 

The intense heatwave is due to bring Broome seven days of maximums of 35C and lows of 30C with total fire bans in place in the regions outside of Perth.
