While the threat of heavy rain in New South Wales has eased, intermittent showers will continue for today and possibly into next week.

Major flooding is continuing along the Lower Hunter, Hawkesbury-Nepean and Macquarie rivers and Wollombi Brook and Tuggerah Lake.

The risk of landslips, trees toppling and flash flooding continues following the persistent heavy rain of the past few days across multiple catchments.

Hazardous surf and marine wind warnings remain current for parts of the New South Wales coast.

Communities are encouraged to keep up to date with the latest Bureau forecasts and warnings through the Bureau's website and BOM Weather app and follow the advice of emergency services.

For people travelling to or around affected areas, the Bureau recommends enabling push notifications on your BOM WEather app for the latest forecasts and warnings.
