Which is indicative of our collective (lack of) interest in the weather at the moment. :(

Actually I think the problem is that is hard to get enthusiastic when we are having dull colourless and boring weather.

We need a decent storm with lots of rain, strong winds and plenty of lightning and thunder at night. I'm not asking for much just what we should be having.

Stuck in a crappy blocking pattern. June 2013 was similar to now, and once the blocking pattern finally moved away, we were stuck in Westerlies for weeks which kept bringing front after front. I really don't think it will shift for a couple weeks. We actually don't too bad from El Nino weather, 2009 winter was quite wet.

Anyone notice the planned 3 Doppler radars in the wheatbelt? Funded by the state government, but presume they will end up on the BOM site?

Hmm, yeah I just looked up my records for that and there were lots of rain days for June to September but the wettest day for me was only 26mm (Perth 30.6mm) - and we still ended up below average for winter at my place. What we need are some more events like that one last month!

Yep, totally agree Floppy!

Wonder if we'll get much weather in the next couple of days? Possible storms forecast for here.

Sparks we have sparks. Fairly frequent lightning to the WNW to NW of Marangaroo.

Ground is also a bit wet so it looks like we have had at least one showerovernight.

Unfortunately screwed up weather seems to be the norm in June during the last 5 years. I remember the good old days when there was an average of 18 days in June when rainfall was recorded. Now it seems like 18 dry days is the norm.

Marangaroo got 0.5 mm.

Well that was the most pathetic cold front to ever approach us. Completely fizzled out to nothing. Now another week of "fine" weather before maybe a shower or two end of next week some time. This year is over already. Yet another below average year. Think I'll move down south where I can see some rain.
I've never seen more weird synoptic charts. Those dammed highs are down in antarctic waters and it's raining in the NT during their dry season.

I think the BOM is being safe about mid week incase there is a major downgrade. Next weeks low is the best looking low this year yet. Could move through and keep the SW in a prolonged Westerly that means further fronts could move through. This imo has been the worst start rainfall wise I ever can remember for SW WA. Previous years OK we have had a really dry June, the previous month has usually brought on near average rainfall.

This could break WA into a proper winter pattern and hopefully this won't let up until Sept/Oct. Usually SW WA doesn't do too bad under El Nino. I honestly just can't explain why we stuck with strong highs too far south for this time of year.

Not one day below 20c so far this winter. Today was forecast for 19c but it got to 21c. If the next two days follow suit then we could go 20 days into winter. Some sort of record surely.

I am hoping and praying that the approaching cut off low brings good rainfall for the South West Land Division (SWLD). My garden in Marangaroo is very dry so I hate to think of how it is for the farmers.
