Default Floods - Queensland

Useful info for anyone who follows the Queensland weather.

The Bureau has a new product this season, the Flood Watch.
They will cover a wide area of the state, and give advance notice of possible flooding across a wide area, as opposed to the existing Flood Warnings, which are only issued after rain leads to a river catchment reaching a certain level.

They will be listed in with the usual warnings on the website. First one issued today.

Issued at 1:58 pm EST on Thursday 11 December 2014

Issue Number: 1

A Flood Watch has been issued for parts of the Central Highlands & Coalfields, Capricornia and Wide Bay & Burnett forecast districts.

Rainfall totals of 50-100 mm are possible, with locally higher totals likely with storms.
