Source: Bureau of Meteorology

Issued at 12:00 pm EST on Saturday 6 February 2016

Issue Number: 5

A coastal trough currently off the Central Coast will move slowly northwards in the days ahead. Thunderstorm activity will contract northwards from Sunday.

Heavy rainfall associated with thunderstorms are expected to produce 50-100 mm with localised totals in excess of 150mm possible in a 24 hour period. Thunderstorm activity may occur for several days. A severe weather warning for heavy rainfall, which may lead to flash flooding, is current for parts of the Flood Watch area.

River level rises above the minor flood level are possible, particularly in areas that have received significant rainfall recently.

Heavy rainfall may also lead to localised flash flooding.

Catchments at risk within the Flood Watch area include the Pioneer, Proserpine, Don, Bowen, Broken, Bogie, Haughton, Ross, Bohle Rivers and Black and Bluewater Creeks.

Separate flood warnings are current for the Fitzroy and Burnett River catchments (see link below).

This Flood Watch means that people living or working along rivers and creeks should monitor the latest weather forecasts and warnings and be ready to move to higher ground should flooding develop.
