Full list: How much rain has fallen in your area in 3 days

Rainfall data from the Bureau of Meteorology shows the way heavy falls have impacted different areas of the Northern Rivers.

Data published on Tuesday morning show some areas within the same catchment have experienced the last three days of rain in very different ways.

BOM meteorologist Helen Reid said thunderstorm activity and pockets of heavier rain have been recorded in the last days in Northern NSW.

"Sometimes thunderstorm activity comes to play on this, although this does not seem to be as much of an issue in regards to (Monday's rainfall), but there have been some pockets of heavier rainfall near a thunderstorm, but sometimes if the rain gauge is located in one side of the hill to another, and the wind, can make the difference in rainfall totals," she said.

"It is broadscale rain, but there are some places that have picked up that bit more."

The following data shows the last three days of readings (unless stated otherwise) for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday readings up to 9am for the previous 24 hours.

 

The numbers are all expressed in millimetres.
