AN UNSTABLE south-westerly air stream over the past week resulted in persistent rainfall across much of Tasmania and southern Victoria extending into the New South Wales Southern Tablelands.
Weekly totals of up to 50 millimetres were recorded in these areas, increasing to up to 100mm for West Gippsland and up to 150mm for western Tasmania.
A coastal trough, along with the passage of a cold front over the South West Land Division (SWLD) in Western Australia, resulted in widespread rainfall of up to 50mm over much of the west coast and south-west, increasing to up to 100mm for the far south-west of the SWLD.
Northern Queensland recorded around 25-50mm of rainfall, locally higher, during the first three days of the week.
