HEAVY RAIN which may lead to FLASH FLOODING is likely for some parts of the Illawarra, Sydney Metropolitan, Central Coast and Blue Mountains during Wednesday. Widespread moderate to heavy rainfall rainfall is expected in these areas, but the most intense rainfall is likely to be more localised during Wednesday morning and afternoon.

Rainfall is expected to ease late Wednesday and early Thursday as the low pressure system moves further offshore.

DAMAGING WINDS, averaging 60 to 70 km/h with peak gusts in excess of 90 km/h are likely along the coastal Illawarra and Sydney fringe from late Wednesday morning, and extending to the Central Coast and the Hunter coastal fringe during Wednesday evening. DAMAGING WINDS, averaging 60 to 70 km/h with peak gusts in excess of 90 km/h are likely about the Barrington Tops on Wednesday evening.

Winds are expected to ease from Thursday morning as the low moves further away from the coast.


Come on - you can do it. :lol: Er, I think I'm not.

I made sure to get some kms yesterday and today - I'll take a rest tomorrow.

I don't blame you. The reports even have Police telling people to not even drive to work! :shock: I'd hazard a guess that most people will still be driving, what else can they do. Work must go on and so many corporate managers must see people sitting at desks...

I absolutely wimped out. Watching twitter and the ABC live blog there are a couple of places I reckon I'd have drowned if I tried to take the trike through.

I did a daytrip to Brisbane today for work. Flights were held up for a bit getting out of Sydney due to tarmac operations being put on hold due to the lightning and heavy rain.

The rain was horizontal ... inside the carpark :shock:

That sounds bad. :shock: It's a bit wet still this morning, but nothing like yesterday. I rode to work today fairly slowly - no point in rushing in those conditions.

Rode to work yesterday and debris was well over trike height on the Shrimpton Creek path.

Given the mess I think it would have been turn back time well before getting to the creek proper.

Sydney weather back to normal.
There is a pile of silt across the path at the bottom of Browns Waterhole too. I suggest getting off and walk through it

Yah .. take care going through Browns. An unexpected cyclo-cross obstacle on the west side (vimeira Rd side near the crossing).
