Heavy rain will return to eastern Australia while high pressure in the Tasman Sea encourages a cooler airflow across New Zealand this week.
New Zealand — There are two main waves of colder air for NZ. The first on Tuesday and the second on Thursday PM and Friday AM – and will move into Southland, Otago and then slides up the eastern side of NZ as far north as about Gisborne. Rainfall totals aren’t huge and snow flurries look mostly light and mostly higher up. Check your local RuralWeather.co.nz forecast for more.
Australia — Starts off dry in the east and south east, but a rainmaker today in SA will drift eastwards in the days ahead and stall over QLD, NSW, A.C.T and northern half of VIC, bringing (once again) 100mm+ in some areas. More flooding and landslides are possible. Refer to local BoM warnings for more info.
