THE Border will get a few days’ break from the rain that washed out many community and sporting events on Saturday, but showers and cooler temperatures are expected to return on Wednesday and Thursday.

Heavy falls totalled 33mm in Albury for the 24 hours to 9am yesterday, with similar tallies in the high 20s and low 30s recorded in the Upper Murray, west to Corowa and Yarrawonga.
Duty forecaster at the Bureau of Meteorology James Taylor said yesterday weather conditions over the next three days would remain benign while a rain system developed in the Tasman Sea.
“It will be generally fine with a bit of light frost Monday and Tuesday with top temperatures into the high teens,” Mr Taylor said.
“The front will move across the southern part of the state on Tuesday and from the middle to the end of the week there will be a very cold airstream that will see showers developing on Wednesday with local hail and thunder and snow down to 1100 metres and 800 metres on Thursday.”
Mr Taylor said there was potential for the snow levels to drop significantly lower than that.
“There is a bit of uncertainty with regards to the cold and rainfall totals that will become clearer on Tuesday,” he said.
“There will be follow-up rain in the Border and North East on Wednesday and Thursday.
“These are very spring-like conditions with warm days and cold outbreaks, only these cold outbreaks have been particularly intense.
“The last one we had was on grand final day and this week’s looks similar to that.”
