Brisbane is currently on track for its driest August since records began in 1999.
The capital of the Sunshine State is yet to record a single drop of rain in August. In fact, the last recorded rainfall was on July 20th when 0.2mm fell. This makes it a whopping 37 days without rainfall.
The driest August was in 2009 when rain was only recorded on three days with a total of 4mm falling. Should less than this fall over the coming working week it will be the driest August in at least 12 years.
However, Sunday may be the last of the dry days. On Monday a large high pressure system will move eastwards and centre itself over the Tasman Sea. This will direct moist southeasterly winds and showers onto the south Queensland coast, including Brisbane. This will continue on Tuesday and Wednesday with totals of 10-15mm possible over the three days.
Should the rain gauge at Brisbane dodge these onshore showers it will face a potentially wet final day of the month. A trough is expected to sweep through the city on Friday with showers and storms bringing up to 15mm.
