STORMS brought heavy rain to northern tropical areas of Australia over the week, while a moisture-laden trough produced significant rainfall over the South West Slopes of New South Wales and adjacent parts of Victoria at the end of the week.

Weekly totals greater than 100mm were recorded in northern tropical areas of Australia, with totals greater than 200mm in isolated pockets.

Weekly totals greater than 100mm were also recorded in the South West Slopes district of NSW extending over the Victorian border, exceeding the daily total records for a few sites.

The highest weekly total at a Bureau gauge was 278 mm at Crawford Lookout Alert in Queensland, which also had the highest daily total for the week of 184mm to 9am on January 30.

Flood warnings generally eased across the country though a Major Flood warning for the Darling River remains.
