According to media reports, the Sydney area has already seen four times the usual amount of rain throughout the entire month of July. The weather service warned that water levels in the area could be at least as high as they were in March, when much of the same area was inundated. The first dam had already overflowed.

Meteorologist Jonathan Howe told ABC that in Menangel, about 70 kilometers southwest of Sydney, the river level has already reached 16.5 metres, just below the record level of 16.8 metres set in April 2022.
