‘A front is progressing across southern parts of WA, and as that goes into South Australia, a low-pressure system developing will move up and into inland areas,’ he explained.
‘Moving with it’s a fair bit of cold upper air that will lead to thunderstorms.’
The rain is predicted to increase when the machine reaches the east shore.
‘As we move into Friday, this system will encounter moisture in the east so rain can grow along the shore and Tablelands.’
