Another system of rain and thunderstorms is developing across New South Wales and southern Queensland today, bringing moderate to heavy rainfall.

Districts likely to see the most rain today in New South Wales include the Southern Tablelands, Central Tablelands, Central West Slopes and Plains, Northwest Slopes and Plains, and coastal areas between Ulladulla and Newcastle.

In Queensland, the most rain is expected in the Maranoa and Warrego, Darling Downs and Central West districts.

As rivers rise with the rain, there is risk of significant inland flooding in particular for New South Wales.

Moderate to major flood warnings are current across much of New South Wales and Queensland.

Major flooding is already occurring at Macquarie and Lachlan rivers.

Numerous flood watches have been issued for renewed flooding across both inland and central coastal regions of New South Wales, including major flooding for the following catchments:

o Gwydir River, Namoi River

o Macquarie, Belubula River, Mandagery Creek

o Bogan River, Lachlan River

o Wollombi Brook, Lower Hunter River, Colo River

Many more catchments are listed for minor to moderate flooding, including the Hawkesbury-Nepean river system.

The rain is expected to ease significantly by Sunday afternoon before moving offshore Sunday evening.

Flood watches and warnings will continue.

The Bureau continues to monitor the situation closely and update forecasts and warnings regularly.

Communities should follow the advice of emergency services and stay up to date with the latest forecasts and warnings on the Bureau’s website and through the BOM Weather app and remember to enable notifications.
