Some good falls of rain for parts of NSW

Graeme Brittain, Wednesday November 14, 2018 - 11:11 AEDT

A low pressure trough has chucked a fair amount of rainfall over southern parts of New South Wales, with more to come.

The Snowy Mountains and the South West Slopes districts have collected the highest rainfall totals so far today.

In the 24 hours up to 9am this morning, Thredbo had collected 51mm, Wagga Wagga 35mm and Jingellic 40mm.

Focussing on Wagga Wagga, this is the highest daily rainfall collected in 7 years, and the heaviest rain in around 11 months.

Rainfall is expected to continue over these areas through the remainder of Wednesday, before petering out into the early-hours of Thursday. A further 10-20mm is possible, and with the chance of a few thunderstorms in the mix, localised falls of up to about 30mm could be reported.

The main focus of the rainfall then shifts to the northeast of NSW from Thursday to the end of the week, as the trough becomes anchored over the region.

Thunderstorms are also a distinct possibility from Thursday to Saturday for parts of the Northern Tablelands, Northern Rivers and Mid North Coast districts - some of which could be severe.
