Squall line to the west is going to slip South. Northern suburbs are getting ripped off compared to the southern suburbs

Looks like we have had a good finish to August hopefully September doesn't end up like June compared to May! :roll: . Hills figures are looking very nice indeed. I have one a gripe about the new water corp website and their publishing of rain fall, they now have a fancy new interface but it looks like they like comparing rainfall in the metro site, to dam levels in the hills! Also they publish figures for stream flow only till 2010, which is convenient. I know they are trying to get us to save water but no need to be so alarmist, its more a problem with population pressure and finite dam water sources, wish they would stop this, the trend begun in 1970's (-| .

Just got home from a trip to Exmouth fishing of course. I left on 11th. Today I emptied 55.5mm from the rain gauge.

Heading north the crops north of Geraldton looked dreadful. However on the weekend they got good rain. There were puddles at the Galena bridge camping area besides the Murchison River when I arrived on Tuesday afternoon. Overnight it rained for a good 2 hours. My guess is that there was 10-15 mm at the Galena bridge. Wednesday morning there were plenty of small lakes and lots of large puddles in the camping area. The crops are now looking magnificent after a good drop of rain. Those farmers will be very happy now.

Lots of heavy rain from Mt Lawley down to Ocean Reef between 4pm and 5pm. Some guy's car skidded in front of me, did a half turn. Luckily we were going slow and he righted it before a crash was caused. Hate to imagine if anyone was on the road next to him going at 70. Freeway was at a stand still. It bucketed down when I got onto Shenton. Absolutely bucketed down. Stunning rainbow though :)

Weatherzone has described todays front as 'strong', which I wasnt expecting with a forecast for a 'few showers' from the BOM. I presume the front is strong for wind and not rainfall.

The weather has certainly been entertaining in August. Lets hope for a wet September as well with the catchments now soaked.

The weekend is set for a wet and blustery start as a strong cold front crosses southwest parts of Western Australia, however conditions will improve for Father's Day.

A series of cold fronts are currently bringing unsettled conditions to the region, with large surf, damaging winds and showers.

One that crossed the region last night brought wind gusts of up to 95km/h at Cape Leeuwin and 78km/h at Mandurah.

Showers also brought widespread falls of 5-10mm across the region, with some places on the hills seeing more than 30mm. Some showers were heavy, with 5mm falling in just 10 minutes at Dwellingup.

The state's capital received 7mm to 9am today, bringing the August total to 167mm, the wettest since 2004. However, overall the winter was still drier than normal, with the total of 351mm falling short of the season's average. Likewise, at Perth Airport, the seasonal total of 293mm was their fifth driest winter on record. This is largely due to June being very dry, with some places in the region seeing their driest on record.

Another front will cross today, causing another burst of wind and showers.

By 11:30am, wind gusts had already reached 107km/h at Cape Leeuwin and 80km/h at Rottnest Island near Perth. Winds will be strongest until about 4-5pm, with severe weather warnings in place for wind gusts up to 100km/h for the Lower West, South West, South Coastal and Great Southern.

Showers will bring a further 5-10mm, mostly near the coast.

Thankfully, conditions will ease into this evening as a ridge of high pressure pushes into the region.

For Father's Day, it will be generally much nicer. Although it will still be fairly cloudy, winds will be much lighter and showers will be briefer and much more sporadic. If you do intend to head outside though, it may be worth packing the umbrella, just in case.

Looking further ahead, it will be a wet start to the week as another cold front crosses the region. However, from about Wednesday, residents can look forward to sunnier, warmer weather.
