More rain is on the way, with a 90 per cent chance of up to 80mm of rain around our region today. Rain with a chance of thunderstorms is forecast for today, tomorrow and Thursday.
In late breaking news, Wilsons Creek landownders report 60mm rainfall in two hours this morning, with the prospect that if rain continues Wilsons Creek Road could close as early as today.
And if that has put a dampener on your Australia Day plans, spare a thought for our southern neighbours further. Most areas on the mid north coast have copped more than 90mm in the last 24 hours on top of already high falls over the weekend.
Grafton has been heavily affected, with more than 70mm of rain in the last 24 hours and, further south, major flooding is predicted for the Bellinger valley.
The Bellinger River at Thora reached 5.8 metres overnight and is expected to go higher. The river is predicted to peak in Bellingen at eight metres.
Waterfall Way is closed between Dorrigo and Thora, and people travelling to the region are advised to use caution and to drive according to road conditions.
