There's a chance of rain for the Great Lakes this weekend but not nearly enough to break the drought or bring us out of our current level four water restrictions.
Possible showers are forecast both inland and along the coast on Friday and Saturday, although they aren't expected to exceed 5-10mm.
Along the coast temperatures are predicted to range between 19 and 26 on Friday, 19 and 31 on Saturday, and 18 and 24 on Sunday.
There is also the likelihood of thunderstorms on both Saturday and Sunday.
Away from the coast the temperature is expected to range between 18 and 30 on Friday, 20 and 31 on Saturday, and 17 and 25 on Sunday.
With just two days remaining in November, the extent of the drought is clearly visible in our rainfall figures for the month.
So far the Great Lakes has received around 6.4mm in coastal areas, while the long-term average for November sits at 82.4mm.
Inland the figures are only slightly better, with 14.2mm recorded compared to a long-term average of 80.3mm.
Conditions aren't expected to improve coming into summer either, with the Bureau of Meteorology predicting higher than average heat and lower than average rainfall along the east coast until at least midway through the season.
