BUNDY households lost the battle between the washing line and Mother Nature thanks to the weekend of sporadic wet weather.
And with showers predicted for the rest of this week, it may be time to invest in a clothes dryer.
"They'll probably be heavier today and Wednesday," Weatherzone meteorologist Sam Brown said yesterday.
Mr Brown told the NewsMail the brief periods of rain and the cooler temperatures on both Saturday and yesterday were due to south-easterly winds coming off the seas.
"They'll bring the temperatures down a bit," he said.
Mr Brown said temperatures were likely to hover around the mid 20s for most of the week, with a top of 27 degrees today and tomorrow.
Since Friday to 9am yesterday, Bundaberg recorded 5.2mm of rain.
