Large swathes of Australia are preparing to batten down the hatches once again as a weekend of wild weather looms.

Australia's east coast will be smashed by flash flooding, torrential downpours, thunderstorms, powerful winds and hazardous surf conditions, causing widespread havoc across at least three states.

The same weather system which flooded North Queensland in recent days is delivering a steady stream of moisture stretching 3,000 kilometres right down to Tasmania.

Severe storms and flash flooding are likely for central and south-east Queensland on Friday with Brisbane expected to receive as much as 70mm.

South of the border, flood warnings have been issued across central west NSW as Sydney and Canberra prepare for a soggy end to the working week.

The other side of the country hasn't been spared either with warnings for damaging winds, flash flooding and fires in place across Western Australia. 

The continued wild weather is due to La Nina, which is 'unusually well-established' for this time of the year.

'Rain and thunderstorms will continue to soak a broad area from eastern Australia on Friday and كورة 4 لايف لبث المباريات even linger over some areas into the weekend,' Weatherzone's Ben Domensino said.

'While the heaviest rain has now cleared western and northern Queensland, other areas in central and southern Queensland, and northern, central and southern NSW, could see localised flooding during the next 48 hours.'

After a soggy few days, Sydney can expect another 25mm soaking on Friday before showers clear.

A strong wind warning is in place for the most of the NSW coastline from Byron Bay in the north to Batemans Bay in the south.

More heavy rain is expected in the state's central west, which may cause minor flooding along the Castlereagh, Macquarie and Bell rivers.

The Riverina district in southern NSW has also been hammered with heavy rain.

In the nation's capital, this week's rain has seen Canberra surge past its average May rainfall in what is typically the driest month of the year.

Canberrans will wake up to another soggy start on Friday before showers ease later in the day.
