After yesterday’s predictions of between 10 and 25 mm of rain today (4 November), the Bureau of Meteorology has updated its forecast to up to 45 mm.

In October, 56 mm of rain fell on the capital.

BOM meteorologist Hugh McDowell said that while there is no weather warning for severe thunderstorms in the region at this stage, Canberrans can expect significant amounts of rain today, particularly on the southwest slopes and western parts of the ACT, and again on Friday and Sunday.

The expectation is for between 20 and 45 mm of rain on Thursday.

Sunday is likely to come with 8 to 15 mm of rain and possible thunderstorms late in the day.

On Monday, the rain is expected to ease (0 to 2 mm) in what is expected to be the warmest day of the week with a maximum of 25 degrees.

The ACT can expect warm days and cool nights, with maximum daily temperatures consistently in the mid-to-low 20s next week and overnight minimums predicted to be in the 8 to 12 degrees range.
