The Bureau predicts a 70 percent chance of showers (up to 15mm) on Sunday, with the risk of thunderstorms persisting into New Year’s Eve.

Temperatures are expected between 19-26°C, slightly above December averages but below January norms.

A spokeswoman from the Bureau expressed concern about a low chance of severe storms, bringing heavy rain, lightning, strong winds, and hail.
