FINAL FLOOD WATCH
FOR QUEANBEYAN/MOLONGLO RIVER VALLEY.
Issued at 4:41 am EDT on Friday 4 April 2014
Note: This Flood Watch is a "heads up" for possible future flooding along all
rivers and creeks within a nominated valley and is NOT a Flood Warning [see
A low pressure trough and its associated cloud band is moving through southern
and eastern NSW today, expected to clear into the Tasman Sea tonight. This
system will produce widespread light to moderate persistent rain over the
Southern Tablelands, Snowy Mountains and Australian Capital Territory forecast
districts for most of today. Rainfall rates are not expected to be heavy enough
to cause flash flooding and as a result the Severe Weather Warning for the
South Coast, Southern Tablelands, Snowy Mountains and Australian Capital
Territory forecast districts has been cancelled. The situation will continue to
be monitored and further warnings will be issued if necessary.
There is a strong Wind Warning for the following areas:
Sydney Coastal Waters, Illawarra Coastal Waters, Batemans Coastal Waters and
Eden Coastal Waters
This Flood Watch means that people living or working along rivers and creeks
must monitor the latest weather forecasts and warnings and be ready to move to
higher ground should flooding develop. Flood Warnings will be issued if Minor
Flood Level is expected to be exceeded at key sites along the main rivers for
which the Bureau of Meteorology provides a flood warning service. Across NSW
about 75% of Flood Watches are followed by flooding within the catchment.
