Flood Warning Number: 21
The river level at Hungerford fell below the minor flood level early Monday
Rainfall totals of less than 10 mm were recorded across the Paroo catchment in

Patchy rain, showers and a possible storm will clear the upper catchment early
Monday afternoon. Largely fine and dry conditions are expected from Tuesday
Paroo River to Eulo:
Small renewed river level rises are likely in the upper catchment in response
