Sydney weather: When the rain will end as downpours hit parts of east coast of Australia

Huge summer storm strikes Australia’s east coast bringing heavy rain and damaging winds – so how is the weather looking in your city this weekend?

  • Heavy rain battered parts of east coast of Australia with conditions set to ease
  • Flood levels in Western Australia have begun to recede after storms in region
  • Wet conditions are expected to ease throughout weekend with sun returning 

Heavy rain is battering parts of the east coast of Australia while floodwaters slowly begin to recede in Western Australia.

Sydney and Wollongong have been hit the hardest with the rain expected to move up north and bring possible showers north of Port Macquarie in NSW later on Friday.

Water levels have begun to drop after a once-in-a-century flood smashed Fitzroy Crossing in the Kimberley region in Western Australia earlier this week.

‘It’s going to be a long clean-up effort and waiting for significant help from crews and emergency services in that Fitzroy Crossing region,’ Sky News Meteorologist Rob Sharpe said.

The floods in Fitzroy Crossing have been caused by continuous downpour from ex-tropical Cyclone Ellie, which is weakening and pushing inland. 

The wet conditions are expected to continue in Sydney into the weekend with the Bureau of Meteorology forecasting a shower or two for Saturday.

The weather will begin to clear with cloudy conditions remaining on Sunday before clearing up on Monday.
