Rainfall Record?

Postby reinfall » Sun Jan 08, 2012 12:25 pm

Hi guys I am new to this forum and had a search around but am cant find the information I am looking for.
I remember reading an article earlier this yr that said that Kuri Bay had already broken the WA rainfall record and this was in about May I think with so they still had the start of the 2011/12 wet season to add to the tally. I cant find the info on the BOM site so I am wondering if anyone knows official reading for the rainfall that Kuri Bay got for 2011. One thing I have noticed is that a fair area of the Kimberley exceeded the 2400mm for the year which beats the previous record held by Kimberley Coastal Camp of 2380.6mm.

Cheers in advance :-bd

I know who will know that answer. Give the guys at MtLawley BoM a call. Ask to speak to JR. He looks after that side of things and is a walking encyclopedia. He's bloody funny too.
Let him know the WA Weather Group said he might know the answer. He'll either chuckle or hang up on you :lol:

Yep JR the man, call Perth BOM on (08) 9263 2222

If I'm in with the sane, does that make me insane?
