Severe weather warning cancelled

UPDATE 10.40am: The Bureau of Meteorology has cancelled a severe weather warning for the Northern Rivers.

The weather system the Bureau had feared would cause flash flooding was still expected to bring rain across the Northern Rivers, but not enough to create a new risk of floods.

 

9.30am: THE Northern Rivers could go back underwater today, with the Bureau and Meteorology and the State Emergency Service warning of potential flash flooding.

The Bureau this morning issued a new severe weather warning for the Northern Rivers, saying a low developing off the southern Queensland coast would move south across the next few days.

Locally, that meant Northern Rivers could expect some heavy rain today with the potential for flash flooding.

Richmond-Tweed SES acting region controller Kaylene Jones told ABC Radio the risk of flash flooding was particularly acute in the Tweed valley, parts of which had received 90mm of rain overnight.

However, she noted the ground was already saturated across the Northern Rivers.

The Bureau of forecasting temperatures to stay in the low 20s for most of the next few days before heating up to mid to high 20s nearing the end of the week, while the region will be presented with almost constant wind and rain.

Anyone needing help from SES volunteers should phone 132 500.
