The Weather Bureau’s Brooke Oakley says catchments including the Coal, Huon, Jordan and Derwent are on flood watch.

“We’re expecting persistent rain over a number of days, so that rain will just continue to accumulate, and the rivers are also very saturated so they’ll respond quickly to that rainfall,” she said. 

In the wake of last week’s flooding, minor flood alerts remained in place for the Meander and North Esk Rivers as of Tuesday morning, with moderate flood warnings still out for the South Esk and Macquarie Rivers.
