OH DAMN. Here Comes The Heaviest Rain Of The Year!

It's here.

Winter has officially started and it wouldn't be winter without some classic heavy rain falling across the East Coast.

Well it looks like it is coming this weekend.

Areas from Rockhampton in Queensland to Sydney and Melbourne have the potential to get over 150mm of rain over the weekend.

More isolated areas may experience 250mm and it could lead to flash flooding.

A surface trough is the reason behind the heavy rain and it is likely to start affecting Queensland on Friday and will spread south very quickly.

Sydney is expected to receive 100mm of rain but it could increase and Melbourne will get a lot less but it may get severe depending on the troughs movement.

Offical warnings are expected to be issued tomorrow morning.
