A slow-moving low pressure system has delivered the highest June rainfalls in two years to parts of northern Tasmania with more on the way over the weekend.
There were widespread falls of over 30mm to 9am on Friday across the north of the state, prompting the issuing of a Flood Watch for the Central North and Northeast rivers. The highest total was recorded was at Cradle Valley where 69mm fell. Places such as Frankford (42mm) and waratah (35mm) had their highest June totals since 2010.
It was much drier in the south with falls of only a few millimetres, including the suburbs of Hobart.
The weekend will be a wet one with more to come on Saturday as the low moves through Bass Strait. Those in the north will cop most of it once again with falls of up to 30mm. Sunday won't be as wet with the low weakening and moving away, however falls of up to 10-15mm can still be expected.
Looking further ahead, the start of next week will be drier for the north but those in the south can expect showers for much of the working week.
