So what is coming up weather wise? Well after a hot day yesterday it is, as expected, much cooler today. We’ve got a heap of cloud near the coast but inland they started the day less cloudy so have warned up quickly with storms now forming. There is a trough sitting from NW Qld into NE NSW – and you can see the storms forecast to form along it this afternoon:
You can see it stays drier close to the coast despite the cloud. Tomorrow is looking fairly similar, but storms start becoming more extensive as the trough deepens. We could see a storm or two closer to our region through the afternoon:
By the time we hit Sunday the trough has moved closer to the coast and we’ll likely see much more in the way of showers and storms as we head through the afternoon and into the evening:
Those showers and storms will likely continue overnight as winds turn more onshore once again. By the time we hit Monday morning there will be showers over the ocean, likely moving inland through the day. Could see some reasonable totals if you catch some of the beefier showers:
Beyond that time winds will swing south to south-easterly and bring more showers as we head through the middle of the week. Some models bring us some decent totals while others are much more conservative – I’ll update on totals as things become clear, but right now it looks wetter, but no flooding rains looking that likely. Could still see some decent totals, getting perhaps close to 100mm over the next week for some of us, higher possible for the usual locations:
Staying cooler with winds coming from the south east – no more heatwaves over the next week or so 🙂 Images all (c) BoM.
