Rare Weather Pattern Could Deliver a Staggering 10 Months of Rain in Two Days Over Already Sodden Areas

By Ashley Nickel

– Queensland is set to see heavy rainfall totalling up to 250mm from Thursday
– The system is forecast to ‘blanket’ the entire state on Sunday and Monday
– Tasmania will see two rain systems move over the state Thursday to Saturday

A ‘rare’ combination of a humid air mass and cold ocean air is forecast to create a record-breaking storm in Queensland in coming days.

The Sunshine State will be anything but as Queenslanders are warned to prepare for wild rainfall totalling between 200mm to 250mm from Thursday through to mid next week.

Sky News’ Senior Meteorologist Thomas Saunders said some regions in west Queensland are expected to see ‘nearly 10 times the monthly average’ while other areas are expected to see five times their previous records as storms blanket the state.

Rain and potential thunderstorms will begin to move in on the southern regions of the state from Thursday.

The Bureau of Meteorology has also issued a potential thunderstorm warning for eastern and central Queensland on Thursday.

The system is expected to then make its way north over the weekend, hitting central and tropical Queensland along the way.

‘Essentially by Sunday night all of Queensland apart from the far western districts will have seen rain and possibly lightning and thunder,’ Mr Saunders told news.com.au

Mr Saunders warned that regions hit by heavy rain two weeks ago should prepare for flashing floods as water storages remain full.

‘The risk of flooding is heightened due to heavy rain across the state just two weeks ago, meaning catchments are wet and will respond rapidly to further rain,’ he said.

‘There’s just no way heavy rain in the hundreds of millimetres can fall across such a large area and not produce flooding.’

The heavy rain is expected to continue to blanket the state heading into Monday.

By mid next-week it is expected that non-coastal regions east of Cunnamulla through to Kowanyama will receive at least 50mm of rain, central and northern coastal Queenslanders will see over 100mm, and coastal regions south of Townsville will receive between 200mm and 250mm.

A heavy rain system will move over Tasmania through Thursday night before re-developing off the north coast again on Friday and will cover the state into Saturday

However residents in southeast Queensland – including Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Ipswich, Lockyer Valley and the Sunshine Coast – will avoid most of the wet weather.

The wild weather has already made a move much further south with heavy rainfall due to hit southeast Tasmania on Thursday afternoon.

The system will move over the state through Thursday night before re-developing off the north coast again on Friday and will cover the state into Saturday.

Heavy total rainfall between 100mm to 150mm is expected to hit the southeast coast with the rest of the state forecast to receive light to moderate rain.

The drizzle is forecast to leave Canberra by Friday morning but the capital will remain cloudy heading into next week.

Perth is all set to see a mostly sunny finish to the week with partial cloud coverage expected to move in on Sunday.

Adelaide will see light showers heading into the weekend and easing on Sunday.

Melbourne is also expected to see the occasional shower in coastal regions through to next week.

Sydney’s grey weather is all set to move away by the weekend with sunshine forecast all the way through to Sunday.
