Multiple states are headed for a drenching in coming days as the remnants of ex Tropical Cyclone Tiffany spread across Australia.
Tiffany made landfall over the Top End last week before weakening but is set to dump heavy rain as it spreads across eastern states.
The tropical moisture brought over Australia by Tiffany will help fuel rain over part of every mainland state and territory this week.
Jackson Browne, Bureau Of Meteorology senior meteorologist, told Today that central and eastern states should expect heavy rainfall and flooding in some parts.
“There is a flood watch current for the northern-western reaches of South Australia at the moment as well as the eastern reaches of Western Australia.”
Here’s what’s happening across the nation’s capitals today.
