A FLOOD watch has been abandoned for the Peel River at Tamworth, although torrential rains are still expected in the coming days. Gray and dark skies are expected to hang over the city with heavy rain forecast through Tuesday. According to the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM), an additional 20mm could be dumped on Tamworth overnight and tomorrow, but the forecast drops to a few millimeters for the rest of the week. The Tamworth weather station recorded a drop of more than 26mm of wet material in the 24 hours to 9am Monday.

The water supply remains full and data from Water NSW shows it was at 101.5% on Monday afternoon. The BoM issued initial flood watches for the Peel and Namoi rivers over the weekend due to expected rain, but had already canceled the alerts on Monday.
