"Given the predictions we should expect nuisance flooding as low lying roads are cut," Local Disaster Management Group Chairman Cr Stuart Taylor said.

"At this stage we are expecting rivers and streams across the region to rise, and perhaps cause some low level flooding.

"From the information we have now, the rainfall predictions are for between 25 and 50mm on Wednesday, between 50 and 100mm on Thursday and back down to between 15 and 25mm on Friday.

"Be careful on the roads as conditions can change rapidly. Please stay safe on the roads and limit travel if possible."
