Gosford cops a soaking

Rob Sharpe, Tuesday February 12, 2013 - 10:36 EDT

The New South Wales Central Coast has been the target of heavy downpours this morning, which have led to minor flooding in some areas.

Many people in the Central Coast awoke to receive more than their usual morning shower. Gosford gained 66mm overnight, including 44mm in only three hours this morning. This deluge caused minor flash flooding of streams and roads.

Elsewhere on the Central Coast, Kincumber gained 77mm and Mount Elliot received 95mm during the past 24 hours.

Showers will ease today for the Central Coast, with the heaviest showers expected to move north. The showers are moving with the strongest southeasterly winds which are producing the heavy bursts. The Hunter coastline will receive the most today before the Mid North Coast and Northern rivers experience heavy showers tonight and tomorrow.

Showers will be clearing from the south with only the chance for isolated showers for locations south from Newcastle tomorrow. The sun will come out at times, brightening people's mood.

Thursday will be similar along most of the New South Wales coast with only a few showers, mostly in the Mid North Coast and Northern Rivers. From Friday showers should begin increasing again for most locations along the coast with showers predominantly in the morning and evening.
