Additional rainfall is expected through Thursday and into Friday, with further unsettled weather in the long-term forecast. River levels are rising rapidly in headwater areas and are expected to see a continued rapid rise with larger rivers rising into Friday or the weekend.

Given the rainfall observed (and minor contribution of further rain forecast), significant rises in river levels are expected, with risks of flooding in many areas.

The public is advised to stay clear of the fast-flowing rivers and potentially unstable riverbanks during the high-streamflow period.
