DISCUSSION: After many months of hot, humid weather with relatively low amounts of regional rainfall across many parts of central and eastern Australia, relief finally appears to be well on the way. As we look towards the eastern half of the nation over the course of the next few days, a fairly strong low pressure system is expected to develop in the vicinity of coastal sections of eastern Australia. As discusses in more detail in the article below (courtesy of the Higgins Storm Chasing team), this upcoming storm system will absolutely bring much-needed rainfall to several parts of central and eastern Australia which are in quite severe stages of drought at the present time. Therefore, this upcoming and likely prolonged rainfall event will definitely bring critical relief to both general soil moisture issues as well as regional fauna which are in varying degrees of danger to the persistently drier conditions which have remained in place during recent days and weeks.
