Gold Coast soaked after overnight downpour
WILD weather that has swamped the Gold Coast in recent days will continue and potentially worsen as a cyclone lingers off the coast.
It comes after the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) issued a renewed severe storm warning for the Gold Coast last night as heavy rain continued to drench the city.
Tropical Cyclone Uesi, a category two system situated west of New Caledonia in the Coral Sea, was tracking southwest at 20km/h tonight.
The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) predicted it could transition to an extra-tropical cyclone by this afternoon, maintaining wind intensity and moving towards Lord Howe Island and the NSW coast.
Boasting winds near the centre of 110km/h and gusts of up to 155km/h, the system was still expected to impact the Coast to some degree.
BOM forecaster Kimba Wong said: "With a tropical low coming through from Cyclone Uesi there will also be big swell and strong winds over the next few days."
She said it was likely heavy rain and thunderstorms would continue throughout today.
It's forecast about 130mm could fall on the Coast in the next few days as the cyclone makes its presence felt.
Meanwhile, the BOM issued a warning today about large and powerful surf and swell conditions expected to form this afternoon.
It's expected the hazardous conditions will continue into Friday.
Anyone in need of assistance during a weather event can phone the SES on 132 500.
