Rain Event Early March 2014

Rain that has been falling along the coast and nearby ranges today is expected to move slowly inland tomorrow. Some heavy falls have already prompted flood warnings around Lake Macquarie and last night there was a severe thunderstorm warning for storms with heavy rainfall sufficient to cause flash flooding in the Newcastle region. Cooranbong near the western side of Lake Macquarie at the foot hills of the Watagan Mountains  received a hefty  230mm of rain in the early hours of the morning.

Rain Event Northern NSW 1st March 2014

Rain and storms are possible this weekend as a trough moving through the state today re-establishes inland.Regions from near Coonabrabran through to Cobar and up to the Queensland border can expected widespread falls up to about 60mm or more. The intensity of the rain event at this stage is not consistent on all models including its location but it is looking somewhat positive for a rain event to occur in the northern inland of NSW. This needs to be watched and it should provide some much needed follow up rainfall for regions that experienced widespread rainfall over a week ago in mid-February.
