Eastern Australia is in for a wet and stormy week as a rainband moves through NSW and Queensland and back to Victoria.
Rain and storms will move throughout the country for the entirety of the week and into the weekend, Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Dean Narramore said on Sunday.
After a wet Saturday for Victoria the wild weather moved through NSW on Sunday into Queensland.
It is expected to travel south back to NSW, bringing heavy falls, thunder, and lightning, he said.
“A band of rain and thunderstorms will move through NSW and into southern Queensland today,” he said on Sunday afternoon.
While the rain moves away from Victoria, cool to cold temperatures are expected to remain, he said.
On Monday and Tuesday showers and storms in the tropical north of the country are predicted, from southeast Queensland to the Kimberly in Western Australia.
But on Tuesday the south of the country can look forward to dry and sunny conditions before rain returns to NSW.
“Onshore flow will increase on the NSW coast on Wednesday, causing showers and cooler conditions,” he said.
“Showers and storms with heavy falls will also spread across much of Queensland and inland NSW, and also continue across the tropical north,” he said.
Eastern Queensland and most of NSW will continue to be battered by rain and storms on Thursday, he predicted.
“Friday and across the weekend, showers and thunderstorms with locally heavy falls will spread west and south from Queensland into parts of eastern South Australia and much of NSW and Victoria,” he said.
Humid conditions are expected for eastern Australia on Friday and into the weekend, he said.
