Final Flood Watch For Gulf Of Carpentaria Catchments
Issued at 11:58 AM EST on Monday 19 February 2024
Flood Watch Number: 8
FLOODING EXPECTED TO CONTINUE ACROSS PARTS OF THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA CATCHMENTS
Ex-Tropical Cyclone Lincoln in the Northern Territory will continue to move away from Queensland over the next few days. An active monsoon trough remains across the southern Gulf of Carpentaria and extends into western Cape York Peninsula.
Catchments remain wet and rivers will respond relatively quickly to further rainfall.
The threat of significant rainfall has passed. However further showers and storms are forecast across the Gulf of Carpentaria catchments for the remainder of this week.
River levels are expected to remain elevated in parts of the Flood Watch area. Localised flooding, isolation of communities, and disruption to transport routes is likely to continue within the Flood Watch area over the next few days. Check road conditions before travelling.
Catchments with Flood Warnings current include:
Upper Flinders River
Lower Flinders River
