A couple of weeks ago, the National Weather Service warned that it was a good bet that Australia would be experiencing rain again in the next couple of months.
Now it seems it is looking more and more like it will be another three or four weeks before we get the next big rainfall event.
Weather station in Brisbane recorded a low of -4C (16F) on Tuesday night and the Bureau of Meteorology said it could be another week or two before we see another big rainfall.
What is a rain event?
The National Weather Services National Weather Bulletin (NWS) says a rain shower occurs when rain falls on the ground.
It is the opposite of a thunderstorm, which is a cloudburst or tornado.
They are not the same thing.
Rain is an umbrella term for a collection of water droplets that have fallen on the surface of a surface.
A shower is a series of drips falling on a surface or on the soil.
Rain is a key ingredient in thunderstorms.
It usually occurs as a shower of drippings, but some showers can have up to several drops falling on the same spot.
The main ingredients of a rainstorm are moisture in the air, air temperature and pressure.
In thunderstorms, the thunderstorm’s updraft lifts the heavy raindrops off the ground, causing them to rain down, creating a torrential downpour.
The intensity of the downpour depends on the amount of moisture in that air, and whether the moisture is dense enough to cause thunderstorms to form.
A thunderstorm forms when the updraft of the updatory flow causes the air to descend.
The downpour is caused by the updraught, the updrift’s downward motion.
When thunderstorms form, they create a huge amount of rain.
They usually last for hours, but sometimes a few hours is more common.
They can be huge, sometimes as heavy as a hail storm, and are not a cause for alarm.
The NWS bulletin says thunderstorms are often accompanied by hail and flash flooding.
How do we know if we have a rain storm?
A rainstorm is caused when the atmosphere of a region, particularly the Pacific Ocean, is wet and dry.
It can also be caused by thunderstorms in the same area, which can also have similar causes.
If there is thunderclouds in the atmosphere, they are usually caused by rain falling from the sky, and then flowing down.
The NWS says a shower or thunderstorm can be caused if the rain falls at or near a higher elevation than usual, as this will make it more likely that the moisture will condense into a cloud, which will result in a rain-like environment.
It will also result in more thunderstorms on the night of the shower.
The higher the temperature, the drier the air becomes, and the more precipitation there will be.
It also increases the likelihood of thunderstorms because thunderstorms can form when moisture in air condenses.
A wet weather day is one in which rain is falling over a broad area.
This can include a rain that falls across a large area, or rain that hits a smaller area.
There are several ways that the NWS can tell that we have rain.
It could be by looking at the ground around the site of the storm, or the ground itself.
The ground is the most likely site to be the source of a storm, but a lot of other weather-related events happen over land, including thunderstorms and hail storms.
The National Weather service recommends checking the weather on a regular basis to see if there is a chance of rain showers or thunderstorms forming in your area.
Another way that we can tell if we are in for a rain day is to look at the rainfall recorded from the ground in your neighbourhood.
This is called a precipitation forecast.
Rainfall data from the Bureau can also give a good indication of the likelihood that rain will fall in your local area, although it will not tell you exactly how much rain is coming down.
