East coast low could bring flash flooding, heavy rain and destructive weather to parts of NSW

A huge storm will bring heavy rainfall and wild winds set to rip out trees and powerlines in parts of the country as residents are warned to brace for flash flooding.

During a week of wild weather, an east coast low is expected to develop over the next couple of days and bring dangerous conditions to the south coast of New South Wales. 

 Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Abrar Shabren labelled the weather system as ‘notorious’ while the state’s leading disaster management agency Resilience NSW tweeted a warning for residents to ‘get ready’. 

Forecaster Adam Morgan warned the east coast low was known for its devastating impact.

‘These are weather systems that can impact communities through flash flooding, damage to trees and property and through coastal erosion,’ he said.

‘In the most likely scenario severe weather may begin to impact eastern New South Wales as early as Sunday as a low develops near the coast.    

‘Winds may be strong enough to bring down trees and powerlines and beach conditions will be dangerous right along the coast.

 ‘As with all East Coast lows pinpointing exactly which communities will see the worst of the weather depends on exactly where and how close to the coast, any low pressure centre forms.’

‘These systems are quite notorious and it’s difficult to know exactly where it will form,’ Mr Shabren said.

‘At this stage it’s forming just off the coast and coast of New South Wales.’

A BoM model showed one scenario where as much as 200mm could fall on the southern half of New South Wales and East Gippsland on Monday and Tuesday.
