Rainfall

The daily total for Mt Lawley was 40.2 mm which was the fifth highest daily rainfall for March on record for the official Perth site. Of this rain 23.0 mm fell in 10 minutes and 38.4 mm fell in one hour. Wanneroo (DAFWA site) in the northern suburbs recorded 62.8 mm in two hours, including 27.8 mm in just 10 minutes, and these values exceed the 1:100 year Average Recurrence Interval (ARI). Figure 3 shows the Intensity Frequency Duration curve for Jarrahdale (southeast of Perth) where a total of 57.2 mm of rain fell. Of this total 54.2 mm fell in one hour and 44.2 mm fell in 30 minutes. This rainfall exceeds the 1:100 year ARI for periods of 15 minutes to one hour. The highest daily total for the event was 80.8 mm recorded at Moodiarrup (southeast of Collie) while Pingelly in the Great Southern reported a record March daily total of 78.6 mm and nearby Narrogin registered 69.5 mm.


Hey, I didn't know pk got that much. We didn't get any heavy rain with the storms. Just a lot of lightning. :D

Though once winds reach those seen in severe weather doppler isn't as useful as it may seem.
This one craps out at 90kmh I think?

Yeah it's software.

I personally have installed TITAN (yes, that tracking software) and am giving it fake radar data.

I'm building my own RADAR.

I'm going to purchase a marine doppler radar, mount it on the roof, and use TITAN to analyse the data from it.
