SEVERE thunderstorms and showers across much of eastern Australia continued throughout the week due to a slow-moving surface and upper troughs combined with a humid airmass.
The heaviest rainfall was recorded across South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria, with a number of locations setting new records for both their wettest November day and their wettest day for any month.
A low-pressure trough over south-east Queensland generated wind, thunderstorms and rain, which continued to the weekend.
Weekly rainfall totals of 15-50mm were recorded across most of eastern Australia and across parts of the northern tropics, with pockets of 50-100mm.
High weekly totals of 150-400mm were recorded in parts of eastern Victoria and south-east New South Wales.
The highest weekly total of 435mm was recorded at Cathcart (Mount Darragh), NSW and the highest daily total was 227mm at Jervis Bay (Point Perpendicular), NSW in the 24 hours to 9am on November 29.
