What is wrong with this place that we can't just get on with it. Sydney or brisbane get a radar like that and would have 100mm already. We need something decent from this weekend because yet again one of these massive highs is coming over and going to dry us up for another two weeks. Dam i had to water my lawn the other day. Perth has truly frustrating weather. Bom tells us how bad it's going to be and more often than not its a fizzer.


Yup. Welcome to the world of climate variability (climate change etc.).
40% drop in rainfall over the past several decades, and further significant drops to come. We'd all better get used to it. Meanwhile tony-dumb-dumb and co. think its all a hoax. (-|

Marangaroo got 4.5 mm Saturday and 28.5 mm Sunday. Currently at 5.10 pm Sunday there is 17.5 mm in the rain gauge.

Quite happy with the rain from the system overall. Would have liked more from the Front and rain band.

Thought I'd just comment that coming home (to Parkwood) from Rockingham about noon the rain was insane! I reckon if we'd had a rain guage on the car it would have clocked up something like 50mm in the trip (about 40 min). Not surprised Jandakot got so much rain around then.

2 1/2 mm here in Bayonet Head for the weekend to 7am this morning
11.2 at the airport to 6:30 am and that from 2pm yesterday
pretty patchy rain and the wind here wasn't worth writing home about
however it has gone round to the SW so maybe more rain

So "disappointed" that there was only 48 mm in the rain gauge this morning. I was expecting maybe 35 mm. :D :D :D :D

When are we likely have the next decent rain event for the Southwest Land Division?

I don't see anything significant coming during the rest of the month.
