Warning to holidaymakers as cold fronts hit NSW

Authorities fear another round of flooding in the state’s already swollen catchments this week as another cold front barrels into NSW.

Sunday’s spring sunshine is expected to give way to rain and thunderstorms as a trough and associated low pressure system moves into western NSW on Monday before rolling east on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The wild weather is set to coincide with the start of the school holidays and the NSW State Emergency Service is urging families heading out on road trips to be aware of road closures and changing conditions.

Showers and storms are most likely in Sydney and flood-hit parts of northern NSW on Tuesday night, with the Bureau of Meteorology predicting up to eight millimeters of rain.

An SES spokesman warned the rain could worsen flooding in the state’s inland river systems, which are already saturated after downpours last week.

“With wet catchments and many dams at capacity, waterways are very sensitive to rainfall and further river rises and renewed flooding are likely for inland catchments,” the spokesman said.

“SES will be in close contact with the Bureau of Meteorology to determine the forecast impact areas.”
