Calling Marge…

rain

If you’re in a corner of the country that’s been basking in sunny autumn weather, just know that the rains are ‘ere… The Bureau of Meteorology says a “northwest cloud band” will bring rain to more than 80% of the country over the next week. You can get into the science of it here, but to summarise – the weather system means cloud cover will stretch from northwest to southeast Oz, often bringing with it soaking rain. The cloud bands have been MIA this season, and it’s been especially felt in parts of Western Oz and South Oz… Before this forecast came in, they were headed for their driest autumns on record. As for when the rain will arrive, after hitting the west coast yesterday, it will move over the south and Northern Territory today and into the eastern states from tomorrow.
