The continuous heavy rain is absolutely unwelcome for ordinary people, but for Australia, which is suffering from the mountain fire in April, it's like rain. On the evening of the 15th local time, Australia finally ushered in large-scale rainfall. After the heavy rain in Melbourne, Sydney also began to rain. The long-term drought has been alleviated. The most important thing is that the raging wildfires are finally expected to be controlled.
In New South Wales alone, the torrential rain is reported to have helped put out 32 forest fires, down from 120 Thursday to 88.
The Met Office expects 30 to 80 mm of rain to fall in Eastern NSW from Thursday to Sunday. For firefighters who have been fighting for more than three months, the heavy rain is as expensive as gold.
NSW Rural Fire Department shared a rain video and wrote: "rescue work for many firefighters in NSW has begun. Although the rain will not put out all the fires, it will certainly play a role of containment to a large extent. "
"We expect the weather to change at least in the next four or five days or so," said Jack Phillips, senior meteorologist at the Australian meteorological agency "Rainfall in some areas may be useful, while in others it may be only a millimeter or two."
In addition, the weather forecast shows that after this round of rainfall, Australia will return to high temperature and dry weather.
