After months of drought and weeks of bushfires, the region could see some much-needed rain in coming days.
According to the latest predictions from the Bureau of Meteorology, after a dry and hazy day on Tuesday, the region could be in for several days of showers and thunderstorms.
So far this month, Wagga has recorded just 1.6 millimetres of rain so far in January. The Tumut and Tumbarumba areas, which are at the centre of the current bushfire crisis, have recorded zero and 0.8mm respectively.
While Tuesday is going to be hot, dry and hazy, possible storms are predicted for Wednesday.
Possible showers and thunderstorms have been predicted for the region until at least Sunday, with the temperatures on those days remaining in the low 30s.
