SCHOOL is officially out and so was the sun for most of the weekend, much to the relief of many mums and dads.

But parents may need to find some indoor activities to keep their children busy later in the week, with rain set to replace the sunny weather in coming days.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Rick Threlfall said the sunshine would hang around until tomorrow.

"(Today) is likely to be mostly sunny but it will carry on being pretty cool in the mornings," he said.

Rose City residents were expected to endure another fresh awakening today, with temperatures close to freezing, but a maximum of 18 degrees is predicted.

"(Tomorrow) should be fine but there will be a little more cloud around and again there will be a cold start in the morning - about 1 degree," Mr Threlfall said.

Wednesday will more than likely be an inside day, with 5-10mm of rain predicted.

"Wednesday should see the cloud increasing and some rain at times," Mr Threlfall said.

"Because of that cloud it won't be as cold in the mornings. You can expect a minimum of about 7 degrees but it will only get up to about 14 degrees."

Rainy Day

  • Between 5 and 10mm of rain is expected to fall on the Rose City on Wednesday.
