We have up to 200ml of rain predicted over the next few days from an East Coast Low:
Severe Weather Warning
for flash flooding
for people in the South Coast and Snowy Mountains forecast districts
Issued at 4:29 pm EDT on Thursday 9 February 2012.
A low pressure trough over eastern New South Wales will deepen tonight and on Friday as a high pressure system south of the Bight extends a ridge towards the Tasman Sea. A low pressure system is expected to develop near the South Coast on Saturday.
Rain and thunderstorms may lead to flash flooding over the South Coast and Snowy Mountains forecast districts from early Friday.February 8, 2012 at 8:52 pm #519234LindyChookMember
We keep getting flood warnings here on the Castlereagh River but it hasnt peaked yet! We are very wet so it wont take much to flood here if it keeps raining up Coonabarabran way! We had a storm today and it had to happen just as I went down the street for shopping and it stopped when I walked in the front door :angry:February 8, 2012 at 9:52 pm #519235mistyhollowsMember

I’m so over RAIN just now :angry: on our way home from Blue Wren’s place yesterday there were storms around and just coming into town there was a bit of water at the sides of the road and the closer we got to home the more water there was … we wondered if we would be able to get the car home????? we did just make it over the causeway and the gully is running again today 13.5mm from yesterday’s storm so DH can’t do any work on the drive :angry:
There is a storm warning out for us and it is pouring just hope that it stops soon and the gully doesn’t come any higher.February 12, 2012 at 4:47 pm #519238BlueWrenMember
Yes, that current severe storm warning is centred on Blackbutt which is way too close to you for comfort.Hope it’s OK.February 12, 2012 at 4:56 pm #519239
