    Flooding Rains Possible Across Southeast Australia

    Southeastern Australia cloud be looking at some heavy rains this week as a frontal boundary should set up shop, dumping inches of rain.

    Showers and thunderstorms will be slow moving in the Victoria and New South Wales regions of the country, allowing showers and thunderstorms to continue to hit the same place.

    The city of Melbourne will be at risk for flooding today as the front passes overhead. Late on by mid-week, storms will drift towards the Canberra area.

    On top of the drenching rains, storms have the possibility to bring hail and some gusty winds.

    On the other side of the Great Dividing Range, showers and thunderstorms could bring more of a flash flooding risk. The internal deserts have a low tolerance for sudden rainfall, and any slow moving showers and thunderstorms could overwhelm creek beds and streams.
