Initial Flood Watch for the Tweed and Brunswick Rivers

Issued at 2:10 pm EDT on Thursday 1 April 2021 Flood Watch Number: 1

MINOR FLOODING POSSIBLE FOR THE TWEED AND BRUNSWICK RIVERS

Heavy rainfall associated with a deepening low pressure trough off the northern coast has the potential to cause minor flooding in parts of the Northern Rivers early next week.

The low pressure trough may potentially deepen off the northern coast early next week bringing showery conditions along much of the New South Wales coast.

Catchments in the flood watch area are wet from recent rainfall

River rises are expected in the flood watch catchments in response to the forecast rain and minor flooding may develop from Monday. Flood Classes (minor, moderate, major) are only defined for catchments where the bureau provides a flood warning service.

Localised flooding and disruption to some transport routes are possible.

Catchments likely to be affected include:

Tweed and Rouse Rivers minor flooding

Brunswick River and Marshalls Creek minor flooding

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

Flood Warnings will be issued if Minor Flood Level is expected to be exceeded at key sites along the main rivers for which the Bureau of Meteorology provides a flood warning service.
Severe Weather Warnings will be issued or updated if very heavy rain is forecast or observed.
