This Flood Watch provides early advice of possible flooding within the specified catchments.
Initial Flood Watch for coastal catchments between St Lawrence and the Queensland - New South Wales border extending inland to the Darling Downs

Issued at 2:47 pm EST on Thursday 1 April 2021

Flood Watch Number: 1


A deepening trough along the Queensland coast is likely to bring heavy rainfall to the flood watch area from Sunday and continuing into Monday. Heaviest falls are likely to occur north of Fraser Island initially, extending southwards to the Queensland - New South Wales border by later in the day Sunday.

Catchments to the north of the Sunshine Coast are generally dry and will be slower in responding to heavy rainfall. Catchments in the southeast corner however, are wet from recent rainfall and likely to respond quickly.

Minor to moderate flooding is possible in the Flood Watch area from late Sunday into Monday. Isolated major flooding is possible.

Localised flooding and disruption to some transport routes are likely.

Catchments likely to be affected include:
Dawson and Don Rivers

Calliope River

Boyne River

Baffle Creek

Kolan River

Burnett River

Burrum and Cherwell Rivers

Mary River

Noosa River

Sunshine Coast Rivers and Creeks

Pine and Caboolture Rivers

Upper Brisbane River

Lower Brisbane River
(Specifically the Bremer River and Lockyer, Laidley, Warrill and Brisbane Creeks)
