More Forecast Weather From Thursday (24 March)

The BOM is forecasting a front that will bring a cool change and the return of showers and storms from Wednesday, persisting until the end of the weekend.
Embedded in this front is the possibility of severe thunderstorms which may have some high rainfall totals in parts of the Northern Rivers bringing a risk of renewed river and creek rises. There is the potential for flash flooding if we get hit by one of these isolated thunderstorms and rainfall triggering further landslips. If we get more landslips particularly along Kyogle Road, this will likely isolate communities yet again. As you can see in the graphic below our catchments are already saturated.
Be prepared…stock up on food, water, supplies, fuel and medications. Stay at home if at all possible – if you go into town you may be cut off from return if landslips eventuate.
We know this is a pretty nebulous forecast…but predicting where an intense localised thunderstorm will impact is difficult.
We’ll try and get further info out as we receive it.
Be alert; not alarmed.
