Summer weather: Scorching heat before severe thunderstorms and rain across Australia’s east coast

Australians have so far been treated to a summer that can’t make up their minds, from unseasonably cold days to the more humid, muggy days we’re more familiar with at this time of year.

That pattern will continue as parts of the country will swelter more than 30 degrees before another round of severe thunderstorms and rain.

Here’s the forecast near you.
