Severe thunderstorms and heavy rains are expected to hit the Riverina in the coming days. The Bureau of Meteorology released an update on extreme weather conditions for eastern Australia and said there is potential for flash flooding in some areas. The region is likely to see showers and storms developing throughout Tuesday evening as the weather trough moves west across the state. Heavy precipitation is expected to flood the Riverina on Wednesday, along with severe thunderstorms, high winds and heavy hail. In other Tuesday news, Blowering Dam in Snowy Valley is at 94% capacity, while Burrinjuck Dam in Yass Valley has 92% capacity. WaterNSW spokeswoman Angela Davies said dam outlets in the Murrumbidgee area had been reduced in anticipation of precipitation. “The Burrinjuck Dam is likely to capture all of the additional inflows based on current predictions, with discharges being carried out in a controlled manner within the capacity of the canal at Gundagai,” Ms. Davis said. “There is a possibility that this dam will discharge under the forecast of higher precipitation.” WaterNSW will continue to work collaboratively with and consult with local advisory committees, made up of landowners, local councils, the emergency service of the NSW State and other key stakeholders, to maximize resource availability, balance pre-releases for flood mitigation, ensure the safety of dam structures, and prioritize water safety in the region. for flash floods due to upcoming weather events.
