Risk of flooding remains across parts of New South Wales as rainfall eases today


Issued: 1:45pm AEST, Monday 4 July 2022

The East Coast Low is expected to weaken today along with easing rainfall, but the risk of major flooding remains across parts of New South Wales.

Major flooding is occurring along the Hawkesbury and Nepean rivers at Menangle, Wallacia and North Richmond with major flooding expected at Windsor and Lower Portland this afternoon and Wiseman Ferry on Tuesday.

With significant rainfall totals over many catchments in the past three days, some areas are expected to approach or exceed flood levels of recent events in March 2021, March 2022 and April 2022.

Severe weather warnings for damaging winds and hazardous surf are current for New South Wales and there remains the risk of flash flooding and landslips.

Communities are encouraged to keep up to date with the latest Bureau forecasts and warnings through the Bureau's website and BOM Weather app and follow the advice of emergency services.

For people travelling to or around affected areas, the Bureau recommends enabling push notifications on your BOM Weather app for the latest forecast and warnings.
