Shoalhaven heavy rainfall and flood warnings

June 6, 2024 9:39 am in by

Big rainfall totals are expected across the region over the next few days leading to flood warnings from the Bureau of Meteorology.

A surface trough extending from the Illawarra region into the Tasman Sea will deepen during Thursday in response to an upper low over New South Wales.

A strengthening humid southeasterly flow to the south of this trough is leading to persistent rain about the Illawarra, northern parts of the South Coast and adjacent Southern and Central Tablelands during Thursday and into Friday.
