Rain is expected to continue lashing parts of drought-stricken NSW.
The state’s northeast and Northern Rivers regions are tipped to receive further showers on Sunday, as a system that has caused bucketing rain and flash flooding in Queensland moves south.
“The rainfall will continue for the next 24 hours and substantial rain is expected at those locations,” he said.
On the mid north coast, Grafton had 155mm of rain and Killabakh had 112mm.
Downpours over the last several days have provided relief for a state ravaged by bushfires, with the number of blazes in NSW dropping from 111 to 73 in six days.
However, there are concerns heavy rain could lead to flash flooding and landslips in parts of southeast NSW and the south coast as the weather system moves towards Victoria over the next 24 hours.
