After days of heavy rain across parts of New South Wales and Queensland, forecasters at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology expect drier weather across the region over the coming days.
Queensland has been battling widespread flooding since December, with huge floods hitting the region earlier in the week. Following on from the devastating wild fires across parts of New South Wales earlier this month, the state has also been affected by heavy rain. Some parts of the state recorded up to 230mm (9 inches) of rain through Tuesday and Wednesday; their heaviest rain fall in years.
While flood and thunderstorm warnings remain in effect through the remainder of the weekend, the forecast is for isolated showers. Towards the end of the weekend an area of high pressure is set to build in the southern Tasman Sea, which will lead to more settled conditions across both of the affected states.
