Marangaroo got 38.5 mm. Which is much more than I feared we would get.

45.9mm here in Stirling. Woke up to check the gauge expecting to only see 10mm. Can't believe I slept through the heavy rain!

13.5 mm when I checked about 8.00 am and it does not look like there will be any more before 9.00 am.

There was 2mm in Donnybrook overnight but the rain is quite a way north of us so I'm not sure that we'll get a lot more for the day.

Looking promising for tonight - late evening here in Perth. I hope it goes off, but expecting more of a polite sprinkle to end the month.

Hoping it doesn't get to bad tonight. I have to play a soccer game in Morley and I don't really want to play in the rain today.

Just had a couple of rumbles. Looks like some storms popped up just to the south of me, hitting Armadale about now.

A nice storm passing right overhead here in Donnybrook. Bit of rain too and what sounded like small hail though I can't confirm that.

It would have been nice if perth got more of a share of the big rainfall figures but that's the year we've had. What I've noticed that I've never seen before is the high pressure systems have remained to the south of us like in summer. Not only that but they've consistently been huge too. 1035 to 1040 hpa. A bizarre year I'd rather forget weather wise.
