Ill start a seperate thread.
Narelle looks like its sucking in from a large area.
With plans to intensify, I see it comming down the SW coast a long way.

More rain for the SW I predict.

I see weatherzone suggesting a possible 20 - 40 ml of rain for sunday / monday?
If and when whatever is left over from Narelle effects Perth and the SW, rain and swell is all we will get.
Last year I think it was Biancas left overs that gave us a large swell that pleased all surfers for a few days. Very little rainfall was delivered to Perth and the reminance moved over very quickley.
Would not be supprised if she fades away to nothing in the indian ocean and all we get is some more humid days.
As Popyee says "time will tell"

EC and GFS have the cyclone or left overs ending up over SW capes (though 1 day different timing), but both give a band of rain across central west and then down towards Perth before it gets there and waters the capes. CMC has HUGE rain totals near the west coast as it washes out near Perth and ACC has it washing out north of Perth and drifting towards it with some heavy rain in the vicinity, certainly one to watch.

Ive been throwing some fertiliser on the lawn every time it looks like it's going to rain in a big way. For the middle of summer, I have hardly watered the lawn at all, but now mowing it every few days. Getting my lawn into a decent healthy looking one after years of neglect, its taking me weeks instead of months.

Wellington dam has been filling up over summer, I hope the rain from this cyclone tops it up more.

Walffles, maybe you should be cleaning out your gutters instead of fertilising your lawn. lol
How is it that wellington dam is filling up over summer?
Is the new de-sel plant feeding into that dam?

Still looks like a fair bit of rain possible for parts of the SW from this, wind impact looks to be minimal. Ukmet and short range ACC now in play both holding low track pretty close to west coast (particularly compared to GFS), this is a wetter scenario should it work out that way.

All models have narells left overs ending up around the south west capes.
Would be nice if she came in further north of Perth as that would be Perths best chance of rain

Narelle could indeed miss all of WA by the time she slips below the South West. Hoping not of course but she has kept us wanting.

30/20 across Perth at 5am = YUCK!

Some quite nasty looking cells approaching the SW capes area right now.

Actually, looking at the ENE surface winds, high Dp, N winds at 850 , 700 and NW winds at 500 and W ish at 200 you kind of think....nahhhhhhhh

Some big swell coming in at the local beaches now. A NNW drift and light winds at 12 kph. Time to grab the board and get into it.
