UPDATE: Rain likely to go away, come again another day

UPDATE 10.30am: The cool southerly change promised earlier in the week is surely upon us, with temperatures dropping overnight to a minimum of 16 degrees - much closer to the May average daily minimum of 14. 

As of 10am the temperature was at 22 degrees and could reach a maximum of 28 today.

As for the rain, we've probably seen the wettest weather for the day, with a Bureau of Meteorology forecaster confirming most of the rain was offshore by mid morning and would continue to move that way.

Chance of rain for the rest of the day is now around 40%.

"The showers will mainly be around this morning and that cloud band will push north and off the coast, so it should clear up later today," the spokeswoman said.

Thursday is set to be sunny with a top temperature of 29. 

EARLIER:

WE'RE in for a bit of a drenching today - and a possible thunderstorm.

There's a 70% chance of rain for the region.

According to Weatherzone, there's a chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon.

But the raindrops won't necessarily quench our need for some cooler days - daytime temps will hover around 30 degrees.

Wednesday looks to be the rainiest day of the week, but there is a chance of showers on Saturday and Tuesday with some cloudy days in between.
