For people in Mid North Coast and parts of Northern Tablelands Forecast Districts.

Issued at 10:14 pm Sunday, 21 November 2021.
Heavy rainfall will develop further about the Mid North Coast overnight, easing during the day on Monday.

Weather Situation:
A broad upper low situated near the NSW/Qld border will continue to produce rainfall on its eastern flank overnight, particularly focused around the Mid North Coast. This low will push northwards during the day on Monday, easing rainfall in NSW.

HEAVY RAINFALL which may lead to flash flooding is forecast to develop further in parts of the Mid North Coast overnight, continuing into Monday morning. Three to six hourly rainfall totals of 60-80mm are possible broadly throughout the warning area, with some isolated three to six hourly totals of 80-120mm possible, most likely near the coast. There is also some risk of localised damaging wind gusts in the warning area overnight if a small low pressure centre develops near the coast.
Heavy rainfall will ease in the warning area during late Monday morning.

Locations which may be affected include Port Macquarie, Taree, Kempsey, Bulahdelah, Wingham and Yarrowitch.

Severe weather is no longer occurring in the Hunter, North West Slopes and Plains and Central West Slopes and Plains districts and the warning for these districts is CANCELLED.
Bundarra recorded 87mm over a 6 hour period earlier today.

The State Emergency Service advises that people should:
* Don't drive, ride or walk through flood water.
* Keep clear of creeks and storm drains.
* If you are trapped by flash flooding, seek refuge in the highest available place and ring 000 if you need rescue.
* Be aware that run-off from rainfall in fire affected areas may behave differently and be more rapid. It may also contain debris such as ash, soil, trees and rocks.
* After bushfires, heavy rain and the loss of foliage can make the ground soft and heavy, leading to a greater chance of landslides.
* Stay vigilant and monitor conditions. Note that the landscape may have changed following bushfires.
* For emergency help in floods and storms, ring your local SES Unit on 132 500.
