Chilly weather has been predicted for Anzac Day dawn services across the country with temperatures in the south-east expected to drop to as low as 5C in some areas.

Anzac Day dawn service attendees in New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania will experience frosty weather with temperatures falling to below 10C at 6am on Monday, according to Sky News Weather.

Queensland is scheduled for heavy rainfall across the state, with a major rain event impacting the north tropical coast that will last through to next week.

The rain event, which is the result of a coastal trough, will bring six-hourly rainfall totals between 150mm to 200mm.  

It could cause major interruptions to Anzac Day services held in major coastal towns. 

Townsville to the north of Cooktown are the major areas of impact, reports Sky News Weather.

Cooktown is predicting 25-50mm on Monday, Cairns could be saturated with 50-80mm of rain on Anzac Day, while Townsville is expecting 50mm.

Queensland’s potential drenching on Anzac Day comes as an expert predicts Australia could be battered with floods and rain for the remainder of 2022 as two major weather events are set to collide for the first time in 50 years.

Sky News chief meteorologist Tom Saunders said La Niña had lasted much longer than average with the weather system still sitting over the Pacific Ocean.

La Niña generally ends sometime in mid-Autumn but it is expected to endure until the end of the season and bring plenty more rainfall.

A negative Indian Ocean Dipole is also brewing over the Indian Ocean and the weather system could be on a crash course with La Niña

The combined weather systems would mean increased rainfall and the risk of more major flooding across the country for the rest of 2022.

The last time the two weather systems combined was in 1974 and it marked the country’s wettest 365 days in 122 years. 

The two weather systems have only clashed three times in the past and each occasion are within Australia’s top 10 wettest years on record since 1900.

More than a year’s worth of rain has been dumped over south-east Queensland and northern NSW in the last three months.

In the flood-devastated Northern Rivers region, the mammoth clean-up effort is nearly over with more than 20,000 truckloads of waste cleared.

‘Around 95,000 tonnes of waste has been removed from flood-affected towns and deposited at facilities in Alstonville and Coraki. That’s equivalent to 126 Olympic swimming pools,’ Deputy Premier Paul Toole said on Thursday.

The Bureau of Meteorology has warned there is more than an 80 per cent risk of above average rainfall battering northern and eastern Australia during winter.

BoM has forecast the current La Niña event to finish around late autumn.

There is potential for flooding in some already-saturated areas in Queensland with predictions of 100mm to 200mm of rainfall (pictured, a woman walks through flooded Tweed Heads)

‘This has been the second La Niña in consecutive years, something last seen in 2010-2012,’ the bureau said.

‘La Niña events typically break down in early to mid-autumn. However, trade winds remain stronger than average over the tropical Pacific Ocean delaying the further weakening of the La Niña over the past fortnight.’

Sky News meteorologists have warned a third La Niña could happen during winter.

It would mark the first time a triple La Niña has happened in the last 22 years. The phenomenon would also mark the fourth triple event since 1900.
