Has the drought across southern Australia finally broken?
According to ABC Rural Weather: “cloud is crossing western Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania with a trough, generating widespread rain. Low cloud is driven across southern South Australia by cool southwesterly winds, bringing showers. Thick cloud is forming over the north near a monsoon trough, triggering heavy showers and storms.”
News Limited is reporting: “A one in 50 year monsoonal downpour dumping record rain across much of South Australia has cut off towns, stranded motorists, flooded businesses and brought smiles of joy to drought-stricken pastoralists.”
While last week national parks across central Australia received flooding rains with even the normally dry Trephina Creek to the east of Alice Springs running.
Western New South Wales may even get some good rain?
So has the drought finally broken?
