The SC Weather Report – Round 5

Note: All times are local. Rabbitohs vs Warriors is being played on the Sunshine Coast.

Friday 6pm: There has already been some showers present on the Gold Coast this afternoon, most likely to have brought around 7-10mm to the stadium. The weather during the Friday evening match is most likely to be fine, however this is only slightly higher than the chance of any rain (55% vs 45%).

The airmass is expected to remain relatively moist, and combined with the light to moderate winds, is expected to leave a moderate to high amount of moisture remaining on the playing surface during the match, from the earlier showers.

Humidity levels will be slim to nonexistent, and game temperatures will be mild to warm in the southeasterly winds.

Sunday 4pm: Isolated to scattered showers are expected close to the coastline on Sunday afternoon, some of which will make it onshore to around the Kogarah area.

At this stage there is a slightly higher chance of rain impacting upon the match than it remaining fine, and there is a little computer model uncertainty in the forecast, so this forecast may be updated on Sunday morning.

Sunday 6pm: There is the possibility of a light shower (or brief patchy rain) around the Canberra during the Sunday evening match, however any of this activity is most likely to occur beforehand. So the most likely scenario is for fine weather during the match, with a moderate to high amount of dew on the playing surface.
