Heatwave will scorch parts of Australia while monsoon trough brings heavy rain to Queensland

A massive heatwave sweeps across Australia while a monsoon trough brings “heaviest rain in years” and potential flash flooding to Queensland.

Eastern parts of Western Australia, northern South Australia, western NSW and north-western Victoria are set to experience temperatures in excess of 40C for days this weekend.

Temperatures are expected to hit 35C in Melbourne and 38C in Adelaide, while Brisbane and Sydney are set to hit just under 30C.

The heatwave comes as torrential rains hit parts of Queensland, with 300mm expected to fall along a 630km stretch of coastline between Cardwell and Carmila.

Clean-up efforts continue months later in Victoria after heavy rains caused record flooding in the rural city of Rochester in October.

Meteorologists warned on Friday that heat from western Australia’s Pilbara desert region is channeling hot air south-east into South Australia and Victoria, bringing sweltering temperatures across the States.

The state capitals, on the other hand, are spared the country’s greatest heat.

Southern NSW and Victoria are likely to see some showers on Sunday but remain hot.

Despite heavy showers across much of Queensland, Brisbane may not see even a drop of rain and is expected to be spared the wet weather but still be cooler than the southern states, with highs of 29C in the city.

Sydney will be spared the NSW heatwave, with the weekend set to be sunny with highs of 29C and lows around 20C.

The Bureau of Meteorology has warned Queensland residents to remain vigilant and prepare for the worst.

“During this period, locally heavy rainfall is also possible in small parts of the warning area, which can lead to dangerous and life-threatening flash floods,” the office said.

Flood Monitoring Notices have been issued for Charters Towers, Bowen, Townsville, Palm Island, Ingham, Innisfail, Ayr, Cardwell, Giru, Abergowrie, Clare and Lucinda.

Much of central and north Queensland’s interior could also experience moderate to severe flooding, with 17 catchments under flood surveillance.

The dynamic monsoon trough has made it difficult for forecasters to accurately assess which cities and settlements may be at risk of flooding.

“At this point, there is some uncertainty as to where the heaviest rainfall occurs and therefore which catchments are most at risk of flooding,” the bureau said on Friday.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services warned residents to keep up to date with alerts and alerts and not attempt to drive through flood water.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese reiterated caution on Saturday morning.

“Take the advice of the authorities,” he told reporters.

“Don’t risk driving through flood water when they’re present. Make sure you stay safe because that’s the most important thing.’

Police urged motorists not to ignore the advice as “extraordinary weather” set in over the next few days.

“Attempting to negotiate these hazards, either in vehicles or on foot, can be treacherous as water levels rise and fall rapidly and very often with little or no warning,” police said in a statement.

A police SUV with an officer inside was swept from Pump Creek dam near Almaden in far north Queensland on Friday afternoon.

The officer managed to get out of the vehicle as it was being swept into Pump Creek and swam a short distance to the creek bank. He wasn’t hurt.

The bureau also said a tropical depression could be developing near the northeast coast over the weekend or early next week.

Around 1,000 homes and local businesses in Rochester – with a population of about 3,100 and about 180km north of Melbourne – were inundated when water spilled over the banks of the Campaspe River in October before reaching 115.7 meters above mean sea level .

A shortage of craftsmen and materials means Lorraine and hundreds of others don’t know when they can move back into their homes.

“Without exaggeration, there will probably be between 150 and 200 trailers in people’s driveways,” Wilson said.

On Saturday, Mr Wilson and his wife counted 250 trailers parked in driveways across Rochester.

Even before the floods, psychiatric services, construction workers, artisans, and laborers were in short supply.

“Now we need her more than ever,” said Mr. Wilson.

“If people want to take a little vacation and have the proper level of manual skills, there’s so much work along the way.”
