Public holiday Monday has been ushered in with a generous downpour.
Intermittent falls are expected to continue throughout the day before taking a night's reprieve.
Tuesday is not expected to bring a repeat performance, but rain will return on Wednesday and Thursday before a dry Friday heralds another clear weekend.
The week's falls are not expected to exceed 10mm, despite several days of constant showers.
However, when added to last week's 0.6mm, it is already exceeding last year's June total.
By this week in June last year, only 0.8mm had fallen over the city, and the entire month received 36.8mm.
The May total is also sitting well above average, with 53.9mm measured.
Compared to May 2018, which saw just 30mm.
