Weather for Monday in affected areas of New South Wales
The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a series of severe weather warnings in the wake of East Coast Low.
The weather system made landfall late on Sunday and is forecast to linger for another day, before moving steadily north.
The low has weakened, but the trough continues to direct moist air toward the coast, bringing moderate to heavy rain. Drier air will gradually push north along the New South Wales coast during the afternoon, wiping most of the rain from the Illawarra, Blue Mountains and Sydney regions by late afternoon.
The BOM said that although rainfall rates have generally decreased, heavy falls are still possible in the Illawarra region, the Blue Mountains, Sydney, the central coast and parts of Hunter. Total precipitation every six hours between 60 and 100 mm is possible, which could cause flooding.
The low is causing very strong waves that can cause localized damage and coastal erosion.
