Finally some significant rainfall across the Sydney region and south along the coast. Some heavy falls occurred in the parched South Coast where water restrictions are about to be issued.
The rain began overnight Friday as thunderstorms streamed in from the northwest. Some hailstorms amongst the many cells that developed and rapidly drifted towards the coast. Most of the more consistent rainfall however occurred on 3rd October. Models seem to indicate a wet pattern and relatively cooler weather at least for the first part of October.
Meanwhile, in contrast, bushfires and heat waves conditions persist in Queensland and parts of northern NSW.
