A low pressure system off the Hunter coast is bringing heavy rain and winds to the region which is causing a slowdown at Warnervale on the M1 Pacific Motorway (F3) Southbound.
The queue extends from Bushells Ridge Road to Jilliby at the twin servos merge. Although this isn’t a long distance it is adding an additional 20 minutes to a vehicle travelling Southbound.
The Bureau of Meterology expects this weather system to strengthen and produce damaging winds between 60 and 90KM/h on Monday morning, some areas may also experience flash flooding.
Motorists are advised to drive carefully and check this website before they travel.
