Heavy rainfall

As well as snow in the ranges, there’s a lot of rain about the place.

A good soaking for most of NSW with falls exceeding 100mm in the upper Hunter valley this morning. Continuing showers and rain in northeast #NSW but in #Sydney we can already see blue skies to the west, with a cool change to follow, the BOM said on Twitter.

Meanwhile high winds around Sydney may be a problem with gusts to pick up later today, with a risk of damage.
