Sydney weather figures reveal suburbs savaged by storm


November 29, 2018 10:01:01

It didn't sound like much, but 23 kilometers were soaked, and those that escaped relatively unscathed during Sydney's savage storms.

Sydney's soggiest suburbs:

  • Mosman 130mm (6 am-12pm)
  • The Rocks 111mm
  • Chatswood 107mm
  • North Ryde 69mm
  • North Manly 64mm

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) rainfall data has revealed that the weather will be flooded by the harbor.

The figures reveal Sydney's lower north shore was in the firing line, where Mosman was drenched with 130 millimeters of rain between 6am and midday at the height of the downpour.

The Observatory Hill, near The Rocks, recorded 111mm in the same period, while Chatswood was next wettest with 107 millimetres.

The halls of the mansion are located in Sydney's south – 23km from Mosman's weather station, receiving about 13mm.

Canterbury, which is just 17km from Mosman, received 20mm.

The weather stations are hourly, three-hour and 24-hour.

'Mini cyclone' in Chatswood

Sydney's south was spared by Boxing (25mm) recording under the lowest totals.

However, those falls were still more than a quarter of the Harbor City's November average of 83.6mm.

Not only was Chatswood a little tired, but it was also the "mini cyclone".

One office building there were 70 windows per hour.

A 14-year-old boy died in a two-car collision at Thornleigh, the New South Wales State Emergency Service (SES), and died during the storm.

The SES received more than 2,000 calls.

Ausgrid said that hundreds of homes and businesses are closed.
