It might be spring but that doesn’t mean it’s time to pack away the raincoat with rain forecast for almost every Australian capital city across the weekend.
It comes as a trough and cut-off low moves east through the southern parts of the country bringing rain to northwest South Australia, parts of Victoria, southwest Queensland and western NSW.
For people in Melbourne and Adelaide there is a chance of seven consecutive days of rain, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.
Adelaide is forecast for a deluge on Saturday with up to 15mm possibly hitting the city.
Canberra won’t be spared the rain either and on Sunday could receive up to 10mm.
A cut off low will bring widespread rain and thunderstorms to much of Inland Australia over the coming days, with severe thunderstorms and heavy falls likely Thursday through Saturday. Humid conditions are also expected. Check your local forecast at https://t.co/EaXv6Kec7X pic.twitter.com/v3SsDFBfUm— Bureau of Meteorology, Australia (@BOM_au) September 16, 2020
