Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology
New South Wales

CANCELLATION OF FLOOD WATCH FOR THE QUEANBEYAN AND MOLONGLO RIVERS
Issued at 10:19 pm EDT on Thursday 14 January 2016
##

Note: This Flood Watch provides early advice for possible future flooding along
all rivers, creeks and overland flow paths within a nominated valley [See note
below].


A strong cold front is moving through the state's south and west. A cool
southerly change is accompanying the passage of this front, which will progress
through central parts tonight before reaching the northeast corner on Friday.
Behind this, a high pressure system south of the Bight will extend a ridge
along the New South Wales coast, limiting any remaining showers to coastal
areas during the the weekend.



This Flood Watch means that people living or working along rivers and creeks
must monitor the latest weather forecasts and warnings and be ready to move to
higher ground should flooding develop. Flood Warnings will be issued if Minor
Flood Level is expected to be exceeded at key sites along the main rivers for
which the Bureau of Meteorology provides a flood warning service. Across NSW
over 70% of Flood Watches are followed by flooding within the catchment.

FloodSafe advice is available at www.ses.nsw.gov.au

For emergency assistance call the SES on telephone number 132 500.
For life threatening emergencies, call 000 immediately.
