Brace Yourselves Sydney, We’re In For More Devastation

It’s the news nobody wanted, but it’s the news we’re getting.

NSW and its residents may be in for another powerful storm predicted to bring heavy rain and a coastal storm thanks to another east coast low.

According to a report on SMH, weather models are forecasting the potential for heavy rain and gail force winds along the NSW south coast from Sunday into early next week, meteorologists say.

"I think at the moment, the major concern would be just the rainfall," Peter Gajewski, a senior forecaster at the Bureau of Meteorology, said.

He says there are likely to be widespread falls of 100-150mm on Sunday and Monday and “in some parts it will be more”.

"I think at the moment, the major concern would be just the rainfall," Peter Gajewski, a senior forecaster at the Bureau of Meteorology, said.

"Where the biggest wind, surf, rain and beach erosion will be is difficult to tell," senior meteorologist Brett Dutschke said.

The good news is that the potential winter storm is unlikely to be as widespread or as long-lasting as the monster east coast low we experienced just a few weeks ago, however many beaches have already been stripped of their protective sand buffers.

"It's likely there'll be some beach erosion, with damaging surf and wind," Mr Dutschke said, adding that coastal impacts may be from next Monday onwards.

Mr Dutschke also advised getting rid of any debris or rubbish surrounding your home in rivers or gutters, "You want that water to running as freely as possible from the rivers out to the sea."
