NT: A slight chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible about parts of the Top End during the day and into the evening. Some thunderstorms may have the potential to produce localised strong winds and moderate rainfall. Heatwave conditions are expected to continue over the northern and western region as hot to very hot conditions continue before easing leading into this weekend.
QLD: Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible today for most eastern coastal and adjacent inland districts where one or two thunderstorms may briefly become severe. The risk is considered low. Localised showers and isolated thunderstorms may produce localised areas of heavy rainfall for coastal districts which may exacerbate existing flooding and river and stream rises.
NSW: Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are possible today for some northeastern coastal and adjacent inland districts and central and southern coastal and inland parts as a low pressure region lies through western parts of the state. There is the potential for some thunderstorms to become severe in the south during the afternoon and evening with the threat of localised strong to damaging winds, large hail and heavy rainfall. Localised moderate to heavy rainfall may lead to further flash flooding over the next 12-24 hours. Frequent cloud-to-ground lightning is also possible with any isolated severe thunderstorms that do develop over the forecast period.
VIC: A Fire Weather Warning is current for people situated within the Mallee fire weather district as the combination of high temperatures and low humidity and southwesterly winds during the afternoon elevate fire danger to severe thresholds. Isolated tending scattered showers and potentially severe thunderstorms are also possible across western, northern and central parts of the state today where localised strong to damaging winds, large hail and heavy rainfall may occur. Localised moderate to heavy rainfall may produce areas of flash flooding with frequent cloud-to-ground lightning possible with isolated thunderstorms.
WA: A Fire Weather Warning is current for people situated within the Interior, East Pilbara Coast, West Pilbara Coast, East Pilbara Inland and Ashburton Inland fire weather districts as heat wave conditions continue for a vast portion of central and northern parts of the state. Extreme fire danger is present today for parts of the East Pilbara Coast and West Pilbara Coast with severe fire danger present for the Interior, East Pilbara Inland and Ashburton Inland. Moderate to fresh and gusty east to southeast winds are expected across the interior today.
