Wild Weather Set To Cause Chaos In Queensland and NSW This Afternoon

Wild weather is set to cause more havoc across Queensland and parts of NSW this afternoon. 

Forecasters warn north-west Queensland, which has already been hit by a deluge in recent days, will experience more rain.

New South Wales is also expected to see some heavy rainfall and wind this afternoon. 

Sky News Weather meteorologist Rob Sharpe said the low pressure system that brought the rain to Townsville last week slowly drifted west across Queensland over the weekend.

He said some towns had already seen their heaviest falls in years.

“Julia Creek has seen 127mm in 24 hours to 9am this morning and Winton saw 102mm — its heaviest rain since the year 2000,” he said.
