Australia will continue its east-west climate divide today, with wet and windy weather for the eastern states, while the west coast can expect hot and dry conditions.

A tropical low and associated trough will continue to bring heavy rains and storms to Western Australia’s Kimberley and the interior of the Northern Territory, with 50mm to 100mm possible by the end of today.

The eastern states will be affected by a separate lowering, front and trough, with intense storms and rains in northern Tasmania, Victoria, eastern New South Wales and Queensland.


Meanwhile, heat will continue to build up on the west coast in the coming days as a low-pressure channel draws a mass of warm air towards the coast. Perth is expected to hit 40 ° C tomorrow.
