Batten Down The Hatches, Sydney: This Is When The Rain's Due
The last few days of glorious autumn sunshine have made it nearly impossible to believe that Sydney really is in for the apocalyptic levels of rain predicted for the weekend.
But the Bureau of Meteorology are sticking to their guns and have confirmed that the wet weather will be sweeping through before lunchtime.
Up to 25 mm of rain is expected to fall across the day, continuing through the night and throughout most of Saturday.
Luckily, though, the dampness will ease on Sunday, with the chance of some light showers in the morning.
A month's worth of rain is expected to fall over the next three days thanks to a low-pressure system creeping down from Queensland; forecasters are claiming it will be the "biggest rainfall since Cyclone Debbie".
We're thoroughly recommending everyone stocks up on tea, biscuits and blankets and works their way through their Netflix list.
Stay safe out there, Sydney!
