THUNDERSTORMS, showers, hail and snow in the south-east of Australia at the beginning of the week were followed by settled conditions due to a slow-moving high pressure system centred south of the continent.
A low pressure trough brought showers and isolated thunderstorms to the south-east of Australia in the last two days of the week.
Weekly rainfall totals above 50 mm were recorded in large areas in the north of the continent and in western Tasmania.
Weekly totals above 100 mm were recorded in parts of the Kimberley district in Western Australia, Darwin-Daly and Victoria Rivers districts in the Northern Territory, and Central Highlands district and pockets of Herbert and Northern Goldfields districts in Queensland.
The highest weekly total (at a Bureau gauge) of 308.6 mm was recorded at Lansdowne, WA; the highest daily total this week was 145.5 mm at Marrara, NT, in the 24 hours to 9am on 28 November.
Rainfall totals between 10 mm and 50 mm were recorded in parts of central Western Australia, much of the Northern Territory and northern Queensland, north-eastern South Australia, southern and north-eastern Victoria and much of Tasmania.
Major flooding continues along the Murray River and in many rivers in inland New South Wales.
