A COLD front with a low pressure system off the south-west coast of Western Australia brought rain across much of the state, including the Pilbara and Gascoyne.

A cold front in the south-east brought rain across South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania before moving over New South Wales, south-west Queensland and southern Northern Territory.

Weekly rainfall totals of 25 to 50 mm were recorded in many areas in the west of Western Australia, south-eastern Australia, north-west New South Wales extending into north-east South Australia and south-west and central-eastern Queensland.

Weekly totals of 50 to 100 mm were recorded in areas of central-eastern Queensland, southern and western Western Australia, southern South Australia and western Tasmania, with small pockets of more than 100 mm in coastal Queensland and northern Tasmania.
