Southern Australia To Get More Rain

Much needed rain will spread over southeastern Australia during the next few days, following previous widespread falls from late August.

The rain will develop on Sunday across inland NSW, Victoria and agricultural parts of SA, and persist on Monday before clearing on Tuesday. The heaviest falls will go to northeast and western Victoria and far southeast SA where over 30mm is possible. Other parts of southern Victoria and coastal SA can expect in excess of 15mm.

Strong winds will accompany the rain, particularly on Monday when widespread gales are possible, bringing damaging gust over 90 km/h.

The wet and windy weather will develop as a pair of strong cold fronts cross southeastern Australia, a pattern typical of early spring. The second front, due on Monday, should bring heavy alpine snow, enough to carry the ski season through to the October long weekend.
