With another rainy weekend ahead, Canberra is on track to record its wettest November ever.

The current record for the month of November sits back in 1995 where 138.2mms of rain feel across the 30 days.

So far this month, the ACT has already recorded 105mm, with plenty more still to come.

As of Friday afternoon, the Weather Bureau has forecast between 40-70mms to falls in some parts of the Territory over the weekend.

If that turns out to be the case, that would put the Capital well above the previous record set back in 1995.

Meteorologist Agata Imielska said the above average rainfall is expected in Canberra right throughout the summer season.

“We need to be mindful of the flood risk that we have because conditions are quite wet.”


Imielska also stressed the importance of being aware of the warnings in place, understanding your flood risk and putting together a plan for what you might do if weather conditions near you deteriorate.

“The best time to do that is when you’re not being flooded.”
