The wet weather likely to continue over the NSW/QLD coastal border region over the weekend, with heavy falls possible in Northern Rivers and Mid North Coast Sunday and Monday.
The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a Flood Watch in north eastern New South Wales.
A system currently developing off the coast of southern Queensland is expected to drift south potentially bringing increased rainfall to coastal areas, most likely from early Sunday into Monday.
Due to the nature of the system there is still considerable variance in the computer models about the exact behaviour and potential impacts at this stage. However, is it still anticipated the state’s north east will experience increased rainfall which may trigger localised flash and riverine flooding.
The situation is continuing to evolve and there is considerable uncertainty around the projected movement and development of the trough system driving this rainfall.
The NSW/ACT Flood Warning Centre has been activated and is monitoring the situation in conjunction with the Regional Forecasting Centre.
Forecasts will continue to be updated as new information becomes available.
