ECL Update - 18/06/16

Well things are now going to start to ramp up for this event, please see the details below also the BoM have issued a Severe Weather Warning which is posted on the page.
Please note ECL's are very hard to predict depending on their track.

Will see the low track in to Northern NSW in the early hours/morning and should be located to the north of Sydney. This a quite fast moving system so only expect 6-18hrs of drama.
By Sunday evening locations such as the Illawarra/Shoalhaven and South Coast should start to feel the effects.
Depending on the low's position winds could become quite strong to gale force at times, rain fall again will be dependant of the positioning I would suggest falls of 50-150mm are quite likely with heavier isolated falls under any embedded thunderstorms.

Should see the tracking off the south coast of NSW in the early hours sliding to the SSE as it goes, coastal winds will be strong to gale fore with heavy rain fall along the coast. Flooding is possible overnight Sunday in to Monday.

Places like Canberra might pick up 80mm whilst the coast could see up to 200mm+ from Saturday to Monday again local heavier falls possible.
***NOTES: This event is ever changing and VERY dependant on the positioning of the low when it forms. This can make a massive different to how much rain/wind places will get.
We will continue to monitor the situation and provide you with updates as we can over the weekend.

If local flooding occurs please stay OUT of flood water.
