The Bureau of Meteorology has issued severe weather warning for parts of Greater Sydney



It’s not news that the weather is terrible right now, but residents of the Greater Sydney area are urged to prepare for particularly severe weather conditions over the next 24 hours. There is currently 23 separate warnings in place statewide, with severe thunderstorms forecast just north of Sydney on the central coast, as far north as Newcastle and as far south as the beaches to the north.

The worst stormy skies are expected to miss the Sydney metropolitan area, but destructive winds and heavy precipitation are still forecast for neighboring areas including the Hunter, Blue Mountains and Hawkesbury areas. The BoM warns against driving due to the risk of flash flooding. A powerful The La Niña event in the Pacific has been officially confirmed by the BoM, which has so far soaked huge swathes of Australia’s east coast, making November one of the wettest on record .

So why is the weather so bad right now? We took a deep dive into the decade-long weather event that looks likely to wipe out summer.
