If you don't like cold/wet/windy and you're in southeastern Australia, then the 10 day forecasts look bleak. I'll take you through whether there is any light at the end of the tunnel.
Southeastern Australia is in week two of an extended stretch of cold, wet and windy weather. The temperatures themselves aren't exceptionally cold (we get these conditions every winter), but the length of them in a row without a break is unusual.
The 10 day hour by hour forecasts continue to look bleak for much of the southeast (if you don't like that sort of weather [if you do check the snow forecast!), but they do show a hint of clearance after the long weekend.
If you're after a break from the showers and gusty winds... we should have some days with lighter winds and a bit of sunshine.
If you're after warmth... we don't have it.
In order for it to warm up we need a high to move over the Tasman Sea, letting all the warmth that is still up in northern Queensland come drifting back down into the south.
Problem is, we can't see day by day forecast details more than 10 days out (scientifically it just doesn't work), however we can see trends in the next fortnight and few months that can give us a bit of a heads up of where those weather systems could move.
If you haven't checked out our seasonal maps yet, please do. These show all the different things that drive our weather, followed by the outlooks for rain and temperature in the weeks and months ahead.
