Possible flash flooding in parts of NSW and Queensland

nswsTHE weather bureau has issued a severe weather warning for parts of Australia, which means your long weekend could get seriously soggy.

NEW South Wales and south east Queensland are set for a soaking this weekend as the stubborn Tasman low that’s led to some of the heaviest rainfall for months refuses to budge.

People in NSW hoping to enjoy the long weekend might want to open a box set rather than a picnic blanket with a severe weather warning for heavy rain in place for at least half the state’s coast.

But in our other capitals some winter sunshine should peek through the clouds for Saturday and Sunday.

The deluge in NSW continued overnight with a monster 267mm of rain falling in Laurieton, south of Port Macquarie on the mid north coast, in the 24 hours to 9am.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe weather warning for the NSW coast between Newcastle and the Queensland border.

Sydney and Brisbane may not have a severe weather warning on their hands but that won’t mean they can expect to escape the wet with 35mm of rain expected to fall.
