The storms are forecast to hit on the weekend, with large partsNew South Wales on flood watch.

An unprecedented wet weather system looks to smash through the recent record-breaking heat.

The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM)has forecast unsettled weather which willgenerate widespread rain as it interacts with humid air from the north, with moderate to heavy falls likely.

As the system moves into Victoria and NSW, that predicted rainfall only gets higher.

“The system will ramp up over Victoria and western NSW on Friday and into Saturday with rainfalls of 100-200mm expected in these areas, particularly those areas closer to the ranges,” BoM senior forecaster Scott Williams said.

“Southern parts of NSW and the ACT could see falls in excess of 100mm on Friday and Saturday with some places seeing 200mm.”

The weather will hit the southern parts of the state harder than the Hunter region. Newcastle, Maitland and the valley has a very high (80 per cent) chance of showers on Saturday, most likely in the afternoon and evening when a thunderstorm is expected to roll in.

Winds will freshen gradually ahead of a significant southerly change on Sunday and Monday.

“To get a rainfall event like this at any time of the year of the year is certainly unusual,” James Taylor, a senior meteorologist with the BoM’sextreme weather desk said, adding that spring is the most likely season for such weather.

WATCH: BoM senior meteorologist Adam Morgan explains how the wild weather will come in.
