Fathers Day - rains on the way
GRAND finals footy for all codes has a cloud hanging over it this weekend, with light rain forecast for the Central Highlands region.
It’s fingers crossed for a bright and sunny Sunday for Father’s Day; although spending the day indoors with dad might be the umbrella-free option.
“The only weather you’ll see up to Saturday is patchy fog areas, and a bit of low cloud, but there is a rain band moving into the south-west of the state during Friday and approaching the Central Highlands during Saturday,” said Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Mike Marrinan.
“We’re likely to see rain develop throughout the Highlands, particularly southern parts on Sunday, and it is likely to be moderate falls with isolated heavy falls associated with storm activity in the rain band.”
Mr Marrinan said the rain event would be preceded by higher than average day and night-time temperatures.
August winter rainfall across the Highlands would have been well below average if not for the rain event in the first half of the month, he added.
“In most places, thank goodness for the rainfall that occurred from August 10-12 because we did have some rainfall in June and July but it amounted to very little.
