The weather is set to remain fairly mild and sunny for southern parts of the state, thanks to a slow moving high south of the state, sending a dry southeast to easterly flow over the region. That flow pattern will turn warm to hot over interior parts heading up the Stuart Highway to the southern NT. A few thundery showers are possible over the far north over the coming days before the ridge knocks the humidity back into the NT.
This will set the stage for a dry week for most areas and the weather is set to turn very hot over the western and northern areas.
Some locations over central and southern SA may reach the 40s with a north wind ahead of a trough in about a week's time. This may bring the chance of thundery showers once again but no widespread rainfall at this time.
Lets take a look
Rainfall Next 10 Days
Rainfall is expected to be very limited and mainly over northern and eastern parts of the nation. I will leave a light rainfall forecast for most areas to just indicate the chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms in about a week's time but otherwise rinse and repeat weather. Make the most of it!
