Running from October to March annually, the ACT experienced its most severe storm season on record in 2019-20 with Belconnen hit hardest.
The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting thunderstorms will continue across the region tomorrow, Thursday 8 October, becoming severe with gusty winds and possible large hail.
A thunderstorm led by damaging and destructive winds over 120km/h is a “high risk” of hitting Canberra this afternoon, according to the BOM.
Expect rain and wind to continue Saturday with a “vigorous” cold front making its way over the ACT expected to pass by Sunday.
With moderate, “welcome” rain predicted for Canberra over the weekend, minor flooding is “possible” for the Queanbeyan and Molonglo rivers.
Severe weather recorded across the ACT and NSW South Coast has backed off as the deep low-pressure system responsible moves away from the coast.
Get the winter blankets ready and batten down the hatches Canberra, because some cold, windy weather will follow once this rain passes late tomorrow.
