Rain clouds will begin to build into Thursday morning with the highest risk of a shower forecast in eastern areas according to the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology where temperatures during the day will peak at about 23°C.

Brisk winds reaching 25 kilometres per hour will increase the risk of blowing dust, particularly inland what could reduce visibility for drivers on some roads.

A period of more unsettled weather with more widespread shower is forecast into the weekend.
