Heavy rain and flooding have caused damage to homes, roads and businesses across the city.
There is no longer any doubt about the weather.
The bureau is forecasting heavy rain for the next few days.
“We expect that rainfall will be heavy, with some of it in the region of 10-15mm, with rain falling over the weekend, particularly in the CBD, but there will be some periods of rain, especially over the north and south of the city,” the bureau said.
“The rainfall will continue into the afternoon and evening, and there will still be some scattered showers.
The Bureau is advising residents to expect some rain on the west coast, but not in the centre of the metropolitan area.”
