THE MIA is under a weather warning for severe thunderstorms and heavy rain.
The Bureau of Meteorology issued the warning at 7.45am on Thursday, January 6, which came as little surprise to residents who have already experience both thunderstorms and rain throughout the early hours of the day and overnight.
Tropical moisture extending south from the Coral Sea will combine with an upper trough to produce severe thunderstorm activity today.
Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding in the warning area over the next several hours.
Locations which may be affected include Cooma, Wagga Wagga, Young, Griffith, Narrandera, Leeton and Darlington Point.
The bureau is predicting a 90 per cent chance of 20 to 40 millimetres of rain falling in Leeton today, with a temperature of 30 degrees, meaning residents are in for a muggy day.
