Areas of heavy rainfall of between 60 to 190 mm were recorded across the Connors and Isaac River catchments and into the Mackenzie River catchment
during Tuesday and Wednesday. The heaviest rain however was centered across the headwaters of the Connors River catchment. This rain was associated with the
