Australians face a few days of wild weather starting Friday, with severe thunderstorms expected to bring the heaviest rainfall in months to parts of the country

A « multi-state thunderstorm » is expected to bring high winds, torrential rains and flash floods to parts of eastern Australia, with storms expected to peak on Friday and Saturday

Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Jonathan How has said Queensland, New South Wales and northeast Victoria will likely bear the brunt of the wild weather

These areas, along with parts of the Northern Territory and South Australia could see storms and wet weather today, but things are set to really accelerate tomorrow

« Friday is still shaping up to be the peak day in eastern Australia and we will see widespread, possibly severe, storms in some areas, » Mr. How

WATCH: Major rain and storm event heads east Australia Sky News chief meteorologist Tom Saunders explains

« This weekend is shaping up to be stormy and rainy for eastern Queensland and New South Wales, including Brisbane and Sydney

« Total precipitation on Sunday will be 30-50mm overall in parts of eastern Australia, but when we see these more intense thunderstorms we could see totals of 100 and even up to 150 mm for some parts »

A low-pressure system passes through South Australia, which will connect with humidity to fuel widespread rains and storms in the east of the country from Friday

Sky News chief meteorologist Tom Saunders described the looming bad weather as a « major rain and storm event »

Storms will be widespread in western Queensland on Friday, as residents warned to prepare for destructive winds and flash flooding

New South Wales is likely to experience widespread storms and rains on Saturday in the interior parts of the south-eastern part of the state, with wet weather also extending to some coastal areas

« Many areas will experience their heaviest rain in months Potentially we could see the heaviest rains since the start of the year in many parts of eastern Australia due to this event » said M Saunders

« But it’s not just the rain, there is also the risk of severe storms It will be a huge rainy weekend and it will last until the beginning of next week »

It’s been almost a month since BOM declared that a La Nina event is officially underway, making it the first time in a decade that the weather event has been declared

La Nina events often bring more humidity to Australia and can lead to fierce flooding and cyclonic seasons

On average, Australia experiences between 9 and 11 tropical cyclones each year, but that number is expected to increase and possibly push the tropical cyclone season forward

La Nina could be good news and bad for Australia’s bushfire season, following last summer’s horror flames, says BOM climatologist Greg Browning
