Final Flood Watch For The Upper Murray River
Issued at 09:26 AM EDT on Sunday 25 October 2020
Flood Watch Number: 5
FLOOD WARNING CURRENT FOR THE UPPER MURRAY RIVER

Rainfall associated with a low pressure system has caused significant river level rises along the Upper Murray River.
A low pressure trough and strong cold front will continue to cross New South Wales on Sunday, reaching the northeast of the state by Sunday evening. Following this, a new high pressure system is forecast to strengthen south of Tasmania early this week, with the remnants of the weekend front lingering near the coast and deepening into a low pressure system offshore on Monday and Tuesday. This pattern has potential to maintain showery conditions across eastern areas for a number of days.
