Cyclone Debbie's Remnants To Lash Sydney Today

NSW residents can expect to be lashed by heavy rain in the afternoon as the remnants of ex-tropical cyclone Debbie clash with a cold front.

The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting heavy showers and flash flooding in the state's northeast and damaging coastal winds north of Sydney on Thursday and Friday.

Residents in Lismore, Grafton, Coffs Harbour Glen Innes and Inverell will be dumped with most of the rain while Sydney, Gosford, Newcastle and Port Macquarie will be hit by damaging winds.

The Northern Rivers region can expect 100mm over a 24-hour period. Sydneysiders can expect showers to start on Thursday afternoon and continue into the evening with a maximum of 45 millimetres expected.

"It is likely that some locations will exceed more than 200mm," the bureau said on Wednesday.

The showers will linger on Friday for Sydney but it won't be as much as the previous day's dumping, with about 6mm forecast.
