Issued 23rd September 2019. At Higgins Storm Chasing we have made a conscious decision to produce new in-house forecasts for the severely drought affected North East quarter of NSW. The new zoomed forecast covers an area from Newcastle north to Tweed Heads, west to Dubbo, Coonamble and Walgett including all “grey area” locations along the QLD & NSW border.
Above image: NENSW 24hr daily rainfall forecast map sample (low resolution). The new high resolution forecasts and maps have been activated as of today! 

There are 70 individual locations listed on our maps with 17 selected to include minimum and maximum temperature forecasts.

These new 24 hour rainfall, thunderstorm risk and snowfall maps will provide full daily forecasts up to 5 days ahead, a week ahead rainfall forecast total and month ahead rainfall total outlook. They will compliment our existing NSW, ACT and Victoria state forecasts and maps which also include a 3 month rainfall and temperature outlooks. Our 4 tier thunderstorm risk maps will provide an early warning preparation for severe and dangerous storm activity.

We believe our new product guidance will assist many farmers and graziers in these areas to make decisions while also providing everyone in the general public some hope in the search for any future rainfall.  
The water storage dams, rivers, creeks, potable water supply and the stock feed situation is at critical levels across this part of NSW. With storm season now just weeks away, we will provide accurate forecasts and up to date live information across the region while taking into extra consideration that “Every drop counts”.

The new forecasts will increase our work load by around an hour a day however there will be NO yearly subscription price increase to our existing or new premium members.
