NSW weather live: Berejiklian says fires and floods may push people to ‘breaking point’ as disaster relief payment expanded | Australia news
With this approach of the new system coming through, the system coming through from the west, which is approaching today, we expect this heavy rain to fall on areas that haven’t seen as much rain over the last few days.
We expect the flood risk to develop in those areas as well. Severe weather warnings reissued again this morning, extended to include the south coast district board tomorrow and the western district of New South Wales for today and tomorrow. Those areas are west of the divide on the western slopes, Moree, Dubbo, Armidale, Tamworth, down to the central west slope can see increases in rainfalls over the next 24-36 hours and tomorrow the focus will shift over towards the south coast.
The flood risk, we expect clearance from the system to occur either late tomorrow or Wednesday, depending on which part of the state you’re in. The flood risk will continue for several days.
