An unsettled start to summer for the southeast

Graeme Brittain, Sunday November 26, 2017 - 16:10 AEDT

A frontal system is expected to bring wet and windy conditions across the eastern states towards the end of next week.

A slow moving low pressure trough will continue to bring a peppering of showers and storms to parts of Victoria, New South Wales and southern Queensland over the next few days - especially in the vicinity of the Great Dividing Range.

This trough will be displaced by a strong frontal system through the course of Friday and Saturday, which has a good chance of delivering widespread rainfall and gusty winds across the southeast.

At this stage, computer models are indicating that many areas will receive more than 25mm of rain from this system, with some of the higher ground of New South Wales and Victoria standing a chance of collecting in excess of 50mm.

In the wake of this system the mercury will take a tumble, as much cooler air from the Southern Ocean is directed across the region. This will be particularly noticeable in Adelaide, Melbourne and Hobart, where much of November has seen sustained above average temperatures.

As with any forecast at this range, the timing and details of this event are likely to change, so keep an eye on the forecast in the coming days.
