Wild weather to lash east coast of Australia

East coast Aussies are being warned to brace for heavy rain and thunderstorms this week as wild weather pours in.

NSW and Queensland were the first hit, as showers and wild winds swept through both states over the weekend.

But forecasters are predicting more rain could be on the cards over the next few days, with the Bureau of Meteorology warning the wet weather is set to strike southern and eastern Australia.

“Rain and thunderstorms are likely to impact much of southern and eastern Australia this week, as a low pressure system south of WA moves across the country,” the bureau’s Dean Narramore said on Monday.

For those planning to brave the water, hazardous surf warnings are also in place across both Queensland and NSW, as the stormy weather whips up large swells.

Minor and moderate flood warnings are in place for parts of NSW as well as frost warnings in Victoria.

The alerts come as meteorologists forecast a wetter than average spring and summer on Australia’s east coast.

La Nina is predicted to wallop NSW again, along with other parts of the east and south coast, as three back-to-back seasons of the dreaded weather pattern bring heavy downpours and lower temperatures.

With areas in NSW still recovering from the deadly February-March floods and the recent June-July flooding, experts are fearing the upcoming wet weather could have devastating impacts on affected communities.

More than 20 weather warnings are in place across the country, including several flood warnings in NSW and Queensland.
