    Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology, Queensland
    This Flood Watch provides early advice of possible flooding within the
    specified catchments.
    
    Flood Watch for the western Gulf Country, Channel Country, Central West and
    extending into the Warrego and Maranoa catchments
    
    Issued at 12:59 pm EST on Tuesday 26 March 2019
    Flood Watch Number: 9
    
    Flooding is expected across the Flood Watch area over the next few days
    associated with the movement of Ex-Tropical Cyclone Trevor.
    
    Ex-Tropical Cyclone Trevor is currently situated within Queensland just east of
    the NT border close to Urandangi and continues to produce bands of heavy rain
    during Tuesday. The Tropical Low is expected to continue moving gradually
    eastwards for the rest of this week.
    
    Heavy rainfall is forecast to continue across South West Queensland for the
    next few days with the focus of the heaviest rainfall shifting eastwards as the
    week progresses.
    
    Some of the heavy rainfall may affect catchments in the Gulf Country that were
    impacted by the monsoon flooding in early February.  It is not expected that
    any flooding will be as prolonged or significant for the Gulf Country.
    
    A severe weather warning is current for parts of the Flood Watch area.
    
    Heavy rainfall may also lead to flash flooding.  Road conditions are expected
    to be impacted as a result of the forecast rainfall and floodwaters.

       Nicholson River
