WEATHER: FLOODING RAIN FOR SOUTH EAST QUEENSLAND

File Image

South east Queensland has copped a deluge, causing flooding and rock slides. The beaches have been closed and there is more to come over night. Across the border, rain totals have also been high for the Northern Rivers, causing flooding. The intense rain system will begin to weaken early tomorrow and conditions will ease, but the damage will be done. Cloud has spread affecting most of the broadcast region with showers falling as far south as the Upper Hunter and Tamworth. Most of the Australia Day long weekend is looking okay for most – cloud with only small scattered showers about for Saturday and Sunday. Increased rain and storms will begin to move back in on Monday. Read More »

Queensland has been swamped with heavy falls causing flash flooding. That threat is set to move into the south east corner, with moderate to heavy falls spilling across the border into north east New South Wales over the next 24 to 48 hours. Conditions will ease on Sunday, but there’s going to be some rain about across the Australia Day long weekend, affecting most regions. Those falls are going to be lighter and scattered. Read More »

WEATHER: THE TROPICS HAVE COME OUR WAY

STORM1

PHOTO: Thanks to Bec Van G. for this great snap, taken this afternoon at North Arm Cove. The stalled trough has been consistently firing up storms across the region for almost a week now and rain totals are starting to add up for some of the drought stricken areas. Tamworth 100mm. Merriwa, Woolbrook and Cessnock 90mm. Mungindi 70mm. Barraba 50mm. Along the coast it has been very patchy with over 200mm coming down on Dorrigo over the past week, while the drought stricken Mid North Coast has generally received less than 30mm. There is still more to come though. We’ll see the storm activity ease over the next couple of days, remaining focused over the northern ranges. On Thursday we are set to have another widespread burst with the potential to pick up more solid totals. The whole weather trend ... Read More »

WEATHER: RAIN READY TO RAMP UP

weatherrain

Almost all of New South Wales, apart from the far north east, received some rain over the past 24 hours. The heaviest falls were over Sydney from the damaging storms. Cessnock, Pokolbin and Maitland fared okay with 30-millimetres, but totals were mostly small elsewhere, less than 10-millimetres. The rain event is ready to ramp up a gear over the next 24 hours and better rain is expected across the very dry North West. Saturday is also looking good for the broadcast region, before the rain eases off during Sunday. From next Monday, the rain is expected to ramp back up again, with decent follow-up falls continuing into the middle of next week. Read More »

WEATHER: BEST RAIN IN MONTHS

taree_weather_web

The best looking rain system we’ve seen in months will begin to affect the region from tomorrow. Storms have been a regular feature across the northern ranges but it has been far more active across southern New South Wales. This week could be the stormiest for the state during December in a decade. A trough is getting ready to stall over northern New South Wales and eventually form into a cut-off low which is poised to draw south tropical moisture over the next week, possibly 10 days. This period of rain, on and off, has the potential to cause flooding. The relief is very much needed though, after the hottest Spring on record for Australia breaking the record that was set only a year ago. (NO VISION) Read More »
