Australians planning to park themselves on the couch on New Year’s Eve instead of heading out on their way may not miss much with the gray and cloudy weather conditions expected.

Conditions for cities along the east coast, including Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, are gray and cloudy, according to a senior meteorologist for the Weather Bureau.

« If you stay indoors (on New Years Eve) it won’t be too bad because it will be pretty gray for a lot of cities, » senior meteorologist Jonathan How told NCA NewsWire on Thursday.

Storms and showers were expected for much of the north of the country, and the only cloud-free parts of the country would be west and central Australia, he said.

In Brisbane there are cloudy skies and the possibility of showers expected until midnight, and in Sydney the showers are expected to clear before the fireworks.

The nation’s capital, Canberra, will be cloudy, but for night owls there will be mostly dry.

« But it looks a little more interesting for New Years Day. We’ll see the humidity increase and showers and storms can appear in the afternoon, ”How said.

In Hobart, cloudy and cool conditions will last from New Years Eve through the first day of 2021.

Adelaide looks « just fine » in dry and mild weather, and Perth sees clear conditions with a hot first day of the New Year.

Unfortunately, gray skies are expected to worsen on the east coast in the first few days of 2021, with thunderstorms predicted in Queensland, NSW, ACT and Victoria.

« On the way into the New Year it seems to be a very active time in much of Eastern Australia as a lot of tropical moisture is seeping in from the Coral Sea and that will trigger a lot of thunderstorms.  » As I said.

He urged those traveling around in early January to heed warnings and be aware that severe storms pose the risk of flash floods.

« For Friday we are looking at fairly widespread storms in the east, with a focus on west Victoria, east south Australia and west NSW, » the meteorologist said.

These areas can experience heavy rainfall and the possibility of large hail and noxious winds.

Compared to last year, however, the risk of bush fire in the eastern states is lower, he said.

« Fortunately, there are very few active bushfires this year, and because there is so much moisture in the air, dry lightning will not pose such a risk this time as there will be so much more rainfall. ”

However, temperatures in Western Australia are expected to rise in the first few days of January, with highs in the low to mid-40s. .

« I don’t expect records to be broken, but it’s going to be pretty high, » said Mr How.

« Severe to extreme » weather conditions will also develop in central WA, the southern parts of the Northern Territory and the northern parts of South Australia.
