Following the continuous rainfall over the last couple of days, river and lake levels have risen. Further rainfall overnight will become increasingly intermittent and less heavy than previously experienced, this will lead to river and lake levels continuing to rise but we are currently not forecasting to reach flood warning levels. We will continue to monitor the situation and update this message should the situation change.
