Showery days for flooded parts of NSW and QLD

Josh Fisher, Monday February 4, 2013 - 09:35 EDT

Scattered showers will dampen clean-up efforts through flooded parts of Queensland and New South Wales during the next few days, but are not likely to bring more flooding.

A slow-moving high pressure system is pushing into the Tasman Sea and will maintain a moist southeasterly flow along the eastern seaboard during the next few days. This will lead to scattered showers across flooded areas in the east, however daily falls will generally remain less than 10mm. Later in the week these showers could become a bit heavier along the Queensland coast, where there is the potential for scattered falls of more than 20mm.

While these showers are not likely to result in further flooding through eastern New South Wales and Queensland, they will dampen those areas that are still trying to dry out.

Winds will shift to a northerly direction in New South Wales later this week, which will allow showers to clear and temperatures to warm. Queensland will see the drier and warmer conditions over the weekend.
