Australia’s wet spell could last ‘right through the decade’

Sky News Weather Chief Meteorologist Tom Saunders says the “wet spell” currently impacting Australia could remain “right through the decade”.

He said there is a “heightened risk” of further major flooding over the next few years.

“What we have seen is a period in Australia where drought has really dominated and as a result we actually went 30 years without seeing either a moderate or major flood along the Hawkesbury-Nepean river,” he told Sky News host Chris Kenny.
