Cold front SLOWLY moving forward - the latest Rainfall Accumulation Map next 48 hours


Rain is moving up the country slowly...very slowly. Surrounded by high pressure the front is slow moving but isn't weakening, with localised heavier downpours over the next 48 hours.

A sunnier Sunday means a wetter Monday - the cold front may not arrive as originally forecast for some northern places today but the front will arrive overnight and drag on across Monday.

As we've said for a few days, most places get 24 hours of rain across this long weekend.
