Rainfall to hit the footy final

Sam Terry, Friday October 1, 2010 - 19:30 EST

The final moments of Rugby League approacheth, excitement is high, but will footy zeal be dampened by the rain?

A cold pool of air has moved over NSW, causing widespread cloud to develop and blanket the eastern half of the state. The cloud kept temperatures well below the October average for many places, including Sydney, which had it's coldest start to October in six years.

The cold pool is also helping a trough to deepen, which will cause scattered showers from the Upper Western district to the South Coast. Unfortunately, Sydney is in the firing line.

There'll be isolated showers around in the morning for the city and surrounds, becoming more frequent in the afternoon. There is also a very marginal chance of storms.

Thankfully, we all know that footy fans can rise above the rainfall, with the addition of a simple umbrella with the appropriate colours (red and white!).
