Severe weather is set to strike eastern Australia this week with rainfall expected to reach a three month high in parts of New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria.
“A low-pressure trough approached eastern Australia on Monday, with the system expected to move slowly east today and tomorrow generating further rain and thunderstorms across much of eastern Australia,” Dick Whitaker, Chief Meteorologist at The Weather Channel said.
“Over the next eight days, widespread totals of up to 50mm are forecast for Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania with isolated areas receiving falls of up to 100mm. Many inland towns could also exceed their entire July rainfall this week,” he continues.
Today in Cowra the weather forecast is for rain developing in the west from late morning, extending throughout the region in the afternoon.
