A few cold core storms embedded in the lines passing through the SW and also into the Southern Ocean.

Rotto has recorded 67kmh gust.
Busso Jetty and the SW Capes have given 80kmh a nudge.
Esperance has gusted to 69kmh and plenty of centres in the central wheatbelt getting a good gust or two.

Marangaroo mini micro burst of rain. It went from nothing to absolutely chucking it down to stopped raining in 30 seconds. We got 1 mm in that time.

I think all of Perth did pretty well from this event, as well as a large portion of agricultural areas. Swanbourne seems to be the only station which missed out, not even 5mm for them in total. 43mm and counting up in the Kalamunda hills.

Hmm dominant high to sea to the W/SW this week.

Around Sun/Mon looks like Coastal/Western Gascoyne & Pilbara to get another rainfall event.

Still very much ahead for the models though Thurs 8th May looks interesting too

Partial eclipse tomorrow.
Don't look at the sun. It'll burn you eyes into lumps of coal.

I was walking around today with just a t-shirt and shorts, looked abit out of place seeing everyone with jumpers. I was embracing it after being in 41C weather with 60% humidity mid last week. I love the cold! Even with the heating on tonight I was feeling hot.

ACCESSG is going for the same. Please I hope this holds. Really want some decent rain around Perth, not just 10mm, least 30mm event!
