Plenty of colours on the radar now! Sharp, heavy downpour just passing by. Reckon the upper levels are cold enough for hail?

Okay that was...sudden and strange.

My dad flies out to China at midnight, hope it's clear by then he isn't a fan of flying! though he flies a LOT.

Interested to see what that little mini-front (is that term allowed? :) ) brings us later today.

'mini' is a four-letter word round these parts, I know... :mrgreen:

So Perth at 9am had reached 135mm of rain for the month. An impressively wet May with some more to come. Hopefully it's a sign for the coming Winter.

Just went very dark here in Marangaroo. Now the sky has developed leaks.

Been trying to work out when the front is coming through, judging by the sat pics it looks like it has passed/passing? Not much form to it on the radar, fairly broken up with just some scattered heavy cells.

Cold air mass approaching the capes now by the looks of it. Any ideas if it'll push up to the metro?

Just had a 2 minute squall. It bucketed down and it blew like crazy. My guess is about 2 mm fell, it is still raining lightly.
