Adverse Weather Alert #1 – Yellow Level

Adverse Weather Alert #1 – Yellow Level is now in effect from today Monday, Jun 20, from 5:05 PM and is expected to end on Tuesday Jun 21, around 10:00 am.

According to The Meg Office there is a high (70-80%) chance that the passage of a tropical wave will result in heavy showers/thunderstorms.

These thunderstorms can produce intense rainfall of over 25mm. Street and flash flooding are likely in areas so prone, causing minor traffic disruptions. Electrical discharges are also likely. The threat of gusty winds in excess of 55km/h will also be present near heavy downpours. These wind gusts may be brief, but are capable of breaking tree branches, displacing unsecured roofs and loose outdoor objects, and can even topple over unhealthy trees.

Instructions from the Met Office: Do not wade or drive through flood waters. Secure loose outdoor items and livestock. Monitor weather conditions and official updates.
