La Nina brings further rain for central and eastern Australia.

Canberra, Nov 23: the bureau of Australian meteorology (BoM) announced on Tuesday that a La Nina event has firmly established itself in the tropical Pacific Ocean, transforming a stormy summer for large swathes of the East Australian nation.

Further flooding is predicted over the next couple of days with 50 to 100 millimetres of rain expected for parts of Victoria, NSW and Queensland and severe thunderstorms on its way.

‘Upcoming rain may worsen current flooding. An initial flood watch has also been issued for parts of South Australia where heavy rain may cause overland flow and disruptions to transport.’

  • Climate change may bring decent rain – but not yet for some time

Meanwhile a huge cloud mass sits over Eastern Australia bringing wet and volatile weather.

Researcher James Risbey of the Department of Oceans and Atmosphere said it was not possible to say exactly what happened in the summer.

BoM officially declared a La Nina weather event Tuesday and declared the Pacific Ocean is in a La Nina phase.

Moisture levels higher than normal due to the amount of moisture in the countryside.
