Flooding rains possible Sydney 18th February 2014

If this comes off, it may be the most significant rainfall event in at least a year for a majority of eastern NSW. Given the fact the region has been dry for such a long period of time, it is inevitable that a significant rain event is to settle the imbalance. It will have to be watched to see if the long term models are correct about this event.

A rain event is almost likely for inland NSW and Queensland but these long term models are trying to depict a developing low situated near Sydney. Such conditions are difficult to determine this far out.

    Models are still seeing some rain fro the central coast but much lower in intensity – obviously quite the normal for models to oscillate between model runs. However, there seems to be confidence to be getting some rainfall particularly along the coast next week and towards the end of the month.

    Looks like a possible superstorm on the cards now! Just looked at at the 17th and GFS has a tropical low merging with an intense polar low just west of Tasmania which "bombs" into one very intense slow moving system. Could be a flood event with isolated supercells for Vic/Tas!!!
