Flood Watch Number: 3

Minor flooding is possible from Sunday evening across parts of the Flood Watch area.

Isolated heavy rainfall is possible in the Flood Watch area from Sunday afternoon into Monday as a coastal trough moves onshore. Rainfall is expected to ease during Monday.

Catchments are relatively wet following rainfall earlier this month and will therefore be more responsive to heavy rainfall, with riverine flooding possible from Sunday evening.

Localised flooding and disruption to transport routes is possible throughout the Flood Watch area, particularly in the areas of heaviest rainfall.

Catchments likely to be affected include:
Endeavour River

Daintree River
(Including the Bloomfield River)

Mossman River

Barron River

Mulgrave and Russell Rivers

Johnstone River

Tully River

Murray River

Herbert River
