Heavy rain is likely to ease in Sydney on Tuesday, the Bureau of Meteorology said.

However, the bureau warned that the risk of flooding could remain through the week. Most river catchments were already near capacity even before the latest deluge.

“The good news is that by tomorrow afternoon, it is looking to be mostly dry but, of course, we are reminding people that these floodwaters will remain very high well after the rain has stopped,” Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Jonathan How said.

The Bureau of Meteorology said that about 90 millimeters (3.5 inches) of rain could fall over six hours in New South Wales’ middle to the north coast from Tuesday. Winds up to 90 kilometers per hour (56 miles per hour) are also forecast in a number of areas.
