Rain band brings soaking falls to South EastThursday February 28, 2013 - 10:12 EDT
Heavy falls are being recorded as a rain band moves through the New South Wales south east.
The Weather Bureau says showers are likely to continue until at least Sunday.
However, duty forecaster Brendan McMahon says heavy rain will ease this afternoon.
But he says the region has had a good soaking.
â??Up in the Snowies, Thredbo, 108mm, Bombala has had 41mm, generally 15 to 25mm along the coast although I noticed Mallacoota, 41mm.
â??Heading north to Moruya on 17mm, the actual leading edge of the main rain band moving in from the west, say is from Bega through to just west of Canberra.
