Train stations have flooded around Sydney & over 100 flights have been cancelled or delayed out of Sydney Airport today due to heavy rain around New South Wales.

Sydney metropolitan, along with other parts of New South Wales, received a month’s worth of rain in two hours earlier today, which caused flooding to some of the city’s train stations, including Town Hall and Lewisham.

The Bureau of Meteorology said heavy rain was a result of a low-pressure system that’s forecast to bring periods of intense rain along with damaging winds and hazardous surf conditions throughout the day and into the evening.

What does this mean for travellers flying in and out of the city?

It means that your journey to Sydney Airport will likely take longer due to heavy traffic conditions around the gateway and your flight is likely to either be cancelled or delayed.

In a couple of Twitter updates, the gateway advised that both domestic and international services have been affected today, and all travellers should contact their airline for updated flight information.

Of course, the situation isn’t ideal – especially for those looking for a sunny Sydney escape – but airlines are doing the best they can considering the circumstances and are hoping to have travellers up in the air as soon as possible.

Are you or someone you know caught in Sydney’s spectacle?
