A grim map that shows no one is safe from a giant rain bomb: What you need to know when it hits your city


Most of the country will deal with a drenching this week as a number of cold fronts move across Australia.

A band of rain over Western Australia will move east over the weekend, bringing wet weather to 80 per cent of the country.

Christie Johnson of the Bureau of Meteorology said the rain will start moving east from Wednesday.

“We may see rainfall in inland parts of WA and even at the end of the day, extending into the western parts of South Australia,” she said.

‘As we move to Thursday, this system continues to track across the country with a band of cloud stretching from the Kimberley right through the Northern Territory into South Australia and by the end of the day into western NSW, Victoria and Tasmania.»

Ms Johnson warned strong winds generated by the system could affect western and southern Tasmania and alpine areas in Victoria and NSW.

«However, this system tends to track eastwards on Friday, with rainfall mostly falling across north-eastern NSW,» she said.

Weatherzone meteorologist Ben Domensino explained that the wet conditions are due to «the blocking high pressure pattern that has dominated Australia’s weather for the past two months has finally broken up».
