Severe weather warning has been cancelled

THE Bureau of Meteorology has cancelled its severe weather warning for the Tweed and Northern Rivers.

Localised flooding was expected to ease as rain drops off to 10mm today, with less falling in the following days.

A bureau forecaster said that while blue skies and completely sunny days weren't likely, rain would begin to clear.

"We'll see scattered showers today and tomorrow. Today will have the highest total rainfall or 10mm, 5mm tomorrow and a couple of millimetres the day after tomorrow," he said.

"Wednesday looks like it may be a good day."

A Weatherzone meteorologist agreed that weather conditions would improve, but was not quite as optimistic as the bureau's forecaster.

"Although the flooding has passed, it's not the end of the rain. Showers will continue and could be heavy at times but we'll see further easing into Wednesday," he said.

"It looks like there'll be a couple of showers each day, but will be lighter and fewer during the week. But it's not looking too good if you're looking for a full day of sunny weather."
