Check the numbers in Donnybrook.
Shitloads of rain overnight. Giving 100mm a nudge.
Don't become complacent, severe weather warning still current and unadjusted from that issued yesterday.

It's barely stopped since about 9.00 last night. Some really heavy downpours. A few flash bangs but nothing huge. Final rainfall total for this event will be interesting.

Officially 95mm til 9am but it's still raining. We'll be well over the 100mm total by the end of this event.

This cold front is moving so slowly. As long as it keeps active, which it should do this afternoon, Perth should get a good fall.

Awesome feature emerging out of the cloud.
Hints of lowering out there.

Looks to be some rotation off burns or it could be an illusion.

That was heavy for a short while in the city. Some blue sky appearing now, almost like pre frontal showers.

Had a deluge for about 5 minutes which dumped at least 5 mm. It's still raining solidly now so I am not going outside.

This cold front is moving so slowly it's almost at walking pace. Interesting to see 30mm has left huge puddles, or should I say lakes on Langley Park. I can see a lot more rain coming overnight. Will be very wet out there by then.
