Weekly rainfall update + rain outlook 26 April 2023

Bureau of Meteorology, April 26, 2023

A COLD front crossed the south-east states at the beginning of the week bringing gusty winds and showers that impacted mostly Tasmania and southern Victoria.

A low pressure trough across northern Queensland combined with south-easterly airflow resulting in locally heavy falls in parts of the North Tropical Coast and Gulf Country in the first part of the week.

Onshore airflow brought locally heavy showers to coastal parts of northern New South Wales and northern Queensland coasts in the latter part of the week.

Weekly rainfall totals of more than 200 mm resulted from storms across parts of the Top End (Northern Territory) and the Queensland North Tropical Coast.

The highest weekly total (at a Bureau gauge) of 489.0 mm was recorded at Tung Oil Alert, Queensland, including the highest daily total of 329.0 mm in the 24 hours to 9am on 24 April.

Weekly totals greater than 50 mm were recorded in parts of the tropical north and western Tasmania, while totals between 15 and 50 mm were recorded in parts of eastern Top End, most of Cape York Peninsula and pockets of inland Queensland, along much of the New South Wales coast and in western Tasmania.
