Parts of Tasmania’s east coast and midlands are on flood watch as rain is forecasted to fall across the state.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a minor flood warning for the St Pauls River, with flooding in nearby streams and rivers likely over the next 24 hours.


Some low-lying properties may become isolated by flood waters, while property, livestock, equipment and crops in low lying areas may be at risk.

Driving conditions may also be dangerous, authorities warn.

“Recent rainfall has caused river level rises along the St Pauls River. Further moderate rainfall totals are forecast for the remainder of Tuesday into Wednesday,” the Bureau said.

“This may lead to minor flooding at Lewis Hill Wednesday afternoon.”

The St Pauls River at Lewis Hill is currently at 0.7 metres and rising slowly, below the minor flood level of 1.7 metres.

The South Esk River at Fingal is at 2 metres and rising, while at Longford it is 0.35 metres and steady.
