Wet weather un­cer­tainty

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Much of the Wim­mera-mallee might have to con­tinue wait­ing for a pro­found au­tumn break de­spite heavy rain fore­cast for much of Vic­to­ria this week.

Bu­reau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy se­nior fore­caster Richard Car­lyon said the bulk of heavy rain would be in south­ern and eastern parts of the state, although he ex­pected some to spill into the fringes of the south­ern Wim­mera.

“The rain will tail off con­sid­er­ably to the north, but the south­ern edge of the Wim­mera might re­ceive falls of be­tween five and 25 mil­lime­tres,” he said.

“For parts of south­ern and eastern Vic­to­ria this sys­tem will rep­re­sent the au­tumn break, but that’s un­likely for the north-west.”

Mr Car­lyon said another weaker front was on its way next week, but it too, would slip to the south and again most likely pro­duce rain only on the Wim­mera’s south­ern fringe.

“It might be that the Wim­mera and Mallee pick up only bits and pieces with a few mil­lime­tres each week rather than one big rain,” he said.

“But we are cer­tainly en­ter­ing a cooler pe­riod of weather.”
