States prepare for third day of extreme weather

Published: (Updated: ) in Australian News by .

Here’s the weather across Australia on Friday October 9, 2020, including a fire warning in WA and damaging winds in NSW.

Extreme weather which caused flash flooding and record-breaking rainfall over the last two days will ease for NSW and South Australia but will continue in Tasmania and Victoria.

Parts of western Victoria received 50mm of rain yesterday, with some areas recording their heaviest falls in nine years.

Tasmania was hit hard with 100mm falling in the space of five hours resulting in flash floods and communities becoming isolated by floodwaters.

Developing weather system bringing heavy rainfall and damaging winds to Victoria and Tasmania. September 9, 2020.

The system is today moving across bass straight and eastern Tasmania before moving offshore on the weekend.

"That means more heavy rain and potentially damaging winds in parts of Victoria and Tasmania on Friday before we see conditions ease on Saturday," Weatherzone meteorologist Ben Domensino said.

A trough is causing isolated showers and storms in the NT and Kimberley and the odd storm is forecast in eastern NSW.

A high is keeping elsewhere mostly clear and settled.
