WEATHER

The wet and windy weather will continue today so don't put away the umbrella yet. The Bureau of Meteorology predicts a few showers until the evening, with the chance of a thunderstorm in the late morning and afternoon. Winds won't be as strong as yesterday though, averaging 30 to 40 kilometres an hour in the middle of the day. Expect a top of 10 degrees.
