Wet weather over the Clarence

UMBRELLAS, raincoats and gumboots have been popular attire this week as the Clarence Valley experiences a soaking in the lead up to the weekend.

Grafton received 33mm of rain in the 24 hours to 9am today.

Alison Skinn, weather duty observer at the Bureau of Meteorology's Coffs Harbour office identified a low pressure system off the NSW North Coast as the culprit.

"The system is deepening and generating frequent showers across the region, especially along the coastal fringe," she said.

"In the 24 hours to 9am this morning, Yamba had received 58mm of rain."

Ms Skinn added scattered showers are likely to continue throughout today and ease tomorrow.

SES Clarence/Nambucca regional controller Caroline Ortel confirmed no reports of severe damage or injuries have occurred as a result of the wet weather.

"At the moment Tyson St in South Grafton is currently underwater and we are just advising motorists and locals to be cautious and avoid driving through flood water," she said.

"The SES will continue to monitor the situation."

Local residents are encouraged to phone the SES on 132 500 if assistance is needed.

Ms Skinn said sunny skies will return to the Clarence Valley on the weekend.
