GAVS WEATHER: MORE FLOODING RAIN TO COME FOR HUNTER AND MNC

The system slamming the Hunter and Mid North Coast doesn’t look impressive on the satellite but is delivering a a powerful punch to the region.

The coastal rain event is now is full swing and will deliver more heavy rain to the coast and adjacent mountains.

The areas under fire will remain from the Central Coast to the Coffs Coast. The trough will remain stalled.

Heavy flooding rain will continue from Newcastle to Port Macquarie with the Manning also under major threat.

The heavy down pours will continue for the Hunter region and Mid North Coast tonight.

Showers will extend north to south east Queensland. Very little rain will make it over the ranges.

We have had 250mm pour down on the Upper Chichester so far, over 100mm across some Newcastle suburbs with 50mm recorded in one hour at Macquarie College.
