High ridge moving in across the state from a southerly direction hence temperatures are not going up too high today .
Perth only 22 at 10am so far with those strong cool easterlies blowing.

Jeez, there is some interesting model output for you guys over in the SW over the next 10 days or so! Strong winds and flooding around Perth on the agenda if the models are correct.

Yes forecast doesn't look that summery at all but a trough forming dragging moisture from the potential cyclone further north seems to be the culprit.

Later in the week a forecast for heavy rain for a few days...with a trough dragging some precipitation from the northern low...

So much for SWWA being a 'mediterranean' climate...

Anyway, its made it into the news now...

WA farmers brace for rare summer deluge
Ben Domensino, Wednesday February 8, 2017 - 13:45 EDT
Five month's worth of rain could fall over Western Australia's wheat belt during the next three days.

Unseasonably heavy rain will develop across the state's South West Land Division, Goldfields and south coast from Thursday to Saturday. This part of Australia typically receives 10-20mm of rain during February, although many areas could see 50-100mm in the next three days.

This rainfall event will be driven by the southward movement of a low pressure system that is currently producing flooding rain over the Pilbara and Kimberley Districts. As the low moves south, it will cause tropical moisture to clash with cooler and drier air moving up from the Southern Ocean. This interaction will trigger heavy rain and thunderstorms for about three days.

Perth should receive 30-60mm during Thursday and Friday, which is well above the 13mm that usually falls during the month of February. Areas around Esperance could see well over 100mm between now and the weekend, which is at least four times the monthly average at this time of year.

A Flood Watch is in place for the Central West District, where catchments are already wet from recent rainfall.

Perth's impending rainfall comes off the back of its wettest January in 17 years and there is a risk of flooding in the city during the next two days.

Stay up to date with the latest flood warnings at http://www.weatherzone.com.au/warnings.jsp

Trough dragging down the moisture from the low.
Heaps of rain around the South West some places including around Perth getting between 50-100mms.

And...some unusually cool temps to match the rainfall. Yesterday's daily maxima were the lowest on record for February(by a decent margin) for many stations across SWWA.
Examples (yet to be officially verified):
(Previous lowest daily maximum in brackets)
Perth AP 17 (19.8)
Dalwallinu 17 (18.9)
Bickley 14 (18)
Esperance 15 (17.7)
Merredin 16 (18)

Noticed that, some spots at moderate and major flood level, figures in the 100+ mm bracket for 24-hour period, yikes! Also made ABC news (Channel 2).

I wonder whether WA has their own local emergency broadcaster channel for events like those on the 11th...guess one way to find out is to ask a local...

Yes a bit of flooding with the Avon and Swan rivers receiving over a 100mms of rain .Wheatbelt got a soaking and now water is flowing down towards the ocean through the river systems.

This may get the mozzies breeding up though as lots of water around and it only take about 2 weeks to get the mozzies into a breeding cycle and get their numbers going.

Rain slowing down a bit with trough weakening and a weak ridge moving in from the West.

Do you live there or have you regularly travelled there? I acknowledge what you're saying but not sure if you got the gist of my last post.

Seriously this is one of the problems -- without Skype no-one has any idea of what I might have really been expressing.

Thanks...so now we can click on the link to this forum, to this thread and to that link to get some information. Or even better, copy the link into our bookmarks and avoid the first option altogether...

All good if you travel regularly to SW WA smile , but that still is not what I was on about. Water under bridge by now probably.
