Some areas are looking lean on the rain charts at the moment, but the rainfall will increase over the southern and eastern inland during the coming 2 weeks.

One way to display this is with the precipitable water values again.

Very quickly. You can see the influence of that moisture through inland parts over the coming 2 weeks.

I will continue to update this element during the coming week because it will hold the key for inland areas and areas through SA to receive some reasonable rainfall.

You are wanting to keep an eye on that green shading even the blue shading would be better, coming through the interior from northwest to southeast, feeding into troughs and fronts. You may see the moisture divert away from the fast flow pattern, but watch what happens early in the week, with a trough that races through the inland and captures moisture. This can easily happen up stream along the line in the coming 2 weeks so keep watching over the coming week.

Significant rainfall over the west and southwest will continue for the coming fortnight and you can see a large amount of moisture stacking up along the west coast ready to come through mid to late month. So again, it may look lean under high pressure if you are living through SA and parts of western NSW and VIC, but it will shift through this week as we get better clarity on the frontal barrage coming next week.

The rainfall will come, in line with the climate signals that you can read more about here, here and here.

The science and theory is occurring before our eyes.
