 Heavy rain brings flood threat to NSW North Coast

Heavy rain has been falling on and off over the NSW North Coast and QLD Gold Coast for the past three days and is forecast to continue. The rain is being produced by a trough off the coast in which a small low pressure system developed today.

The heaviest rain has been between about Ballina/Lismore and the NSW/QLD border with three-day totals generally around 150mm but up to 250mm in places. Maps from the BoM's Twitter page show where the rain fell and the heaviest totals daily to 09.00 on Saturday 10, Sunday 11 and today Monday 12 June.

As of 23.00 today, minor flood warnings were in force for parts of the Brunswick, Richmond and Wilsons Rivers, including around Lismore. The BoM was forecasting the potential for further rain up to 200mm in the Northern Rivers and northern part of the Mid North Coast in the next two days, so flood watches were current from the Nambucca River north to the QLD border.

Australian weather briefs

  • Fog was widespread in NSW and VIC this morning. Large areas of both states, from the Hunter to the Southern Tablelands and west to the Slopes in NSW and in northern and central VIC, had fog until mid-morning with several observations coming in of visibility down to 50m. The fog was caused by radiation cooling under generally clear skies after rain. What ABC News described as "a classic pea-souper" fog enveloped much of Sydney causing flight cancellations, delays and diversions at the airport and dropping visibility as low as 100m in parts of the metro area.
  • The nights have been exceptionally cold in the Centre so far this month, with Alice Springs Airport reporting minimum temperatures of zero or below on 10 of the 12 mornings so far. The lowest, -2.9° yesterday morning, was the coldest for June in five years according to the BoM. The two mornings with positive minima only reached 1.2° and 2.4°, all well below the June average of +5.0°. The cause of the unusually cold nights has been a persistent ridge of high pressure sitting over SA causing a large area of gently descending dry air and clear skies
