Beachside homes along the NSW Central Coast could be at further risk of erosion as extreme weather hits Australia’s east coast this weekend.
The Bureau of Meteorology’s Diane Eadie said heavy rainfall is expected along the coast of southeast Queensland on the weekend, however this will move south into NSW by next week.
“The worst to be affected is likely to be southern parts of Queensland and northern NSW on Saturday,” Ms Eadie told Today.
“Then the whole system will progress further to the east on Sunday.”
She said the bureau is carefully watching a low-pressure system that is moving off the coast of northeast NSW, which could potentially bring much heavier rainfall and further erosion to beachside communities with it.
“It’s something we are all watching really carefully and that low does unfortunately have potential to bring some gusty winds and big waves in the early parts of next week,” Ms Eadie said.
She said the NSW Central Coast could see further erosion along beachside suburbs like Wamberal.
