Rain could fall for five consecutive days this week, if predictions from the Bureau of Meteorology materialise.
Thunderstorms with possible showers are forecast for the Albury-Wodonga region on Wednesday and Thursday, while the bureau has predicted Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be cloudy with showers and possibly more storms.
Up to 3mm of rain is predicted to fall in Albury-Wodonga on Wednesday, 4mm on Thursday, 2mm on Friday, 6mm on Saturday and up to 10mm on Sunday, according to the bureau.
Senior forecaster Michael Efron said if the storms developed they would be slow moving and could result in significant localised rainfall and unsettled conditions.
"The rain [isn't] necessarily good news with conditions becoming quite hazardous across firegrounds," he said.
Mr Efron said the rain could sweep across bare earth left behind after fires and sweep debris onto roads, possibly even triggering flash flooding.
