The jet stream pattern is similar to last week with a cold low pressure trough out West and a Warm high pressure ridge Southeast and an active Southwest to Northeast storm track in between providing us with a parade of periods of rain on and off, heavy at times and some thunder in a few areas. The surface weather map above is valid this aftenoon.
The temperature roller coaster ride continues this week and next weekend as well.
It will NOT rain all day constantly today even where it does rain there will be dry hours, the driest areas will be the far South and East Suburbs. All areas turn wet tonight into tomorrow.
