Drought stricken Victoria welcomes rain

A hot and sunny weekend in Victoria was replaced by cold, wet weather on Monday. The change in conditions is welcome news for farmers struggling through the seemingly never-ending drought.

“Geelong picked up 8mm by 5pm, not that much considering their October average is 60mm, but it was their wettest day in over two months.” said weatherzone.com.au meteorologist Thomas Saunders.

“Most of western Victoria received a few millimetres by Monday evening but the rain will become a little more widespread overnight. We expect most districts to receive around 5 to 10mm which will be the most widespread decent rain for months.”

The rain is also bringing a dramatic temperature drop. Rutherglen reached 35 on Monday for the second day in a row, a first in October in at least 40 years. Under the rain Ballarat was shivering on just 13 degrees at 3pm, 17 degrees cooler than yesterday.

Months have now passed since rain last fell over much of western NSW but weatherzone is predicting the dry spell will finally end over the next few days.

“Rain and storms developed in SA on Monday and will drift east across NSW with a trough of low pressure between Tuesday and Thursday.” said weatherzone.com.au meteorologist Thomas Saunders.

“The hit and miss nature of thunderstorm activity makes it hard to forecast exact totals but most districts should receive at least one or two millimetres. The eastern half of the state should see totals closer to 10 or 20mm.”

The rain follows an intense hot spell which saw temperatures climb up to 16 degrees above average on Monday, including 37 in Moruya. Wagga hit 34 on Monday for the second day in a row, the first time that’s happened in October for 60 years. Albury reached 35 for the second consecutive day, a 24 year record for October
Rain clears but thunderstorms fire up in SA

A band of rain has cleared from South Australia, but thunderstorms have taken its place.

“SA has just had its most widespread and best rain event in about six months,” said weatherzone.com.au meteorologist Brett Dutschke.

“Parts of the Mount Lofty Ranges, Yorke Peninsula and southern Eyre Peninsula picked up 10 to 20 millimetres, the highest rain since April for some, including Warooka, Clare and Strathalbyn,” said Dutschke.

Port Lincoln gained 30mm, its highest rainfall in 19 months.

“It’s not widespread soaking rain but it relieves some stress brought on by the recent dry.”

Now that this rain has moved on, thunderstorms have become a feature as a pool of cold, unstable air latches onto lingering moisture.

These storms are bringing brief heavy rain, over 20mm to parts of the agricultural areas north of the Barossa Valley. There has been a report of about 50mm near Crystal Brook.
