Nice little downpour started at 5am at 1mm per minute then slowed down with some good thunder around in the vicinity of Broome .

Ended up with 51 mms from this morning storm associated with a broad low/trough which extends right across the Top End .

Just as it was starting to dry out a bit...

Monsoonal trough which has been fighting the dry air mass across OZ is bringing rain as far south as the Pilbara.

Broome had about 5mms in the south side of town but none at the airport.

40.8 at Roebourne Airport at 9.13am Solar Time is a tad extreme. Depending how high it goes in Pilbara would the result be some kind of record this late in March?

Cheers Desie. I posted in a few comments in the NSW section about the heat in WA. Far as I can tell Roebourne (if it doesn't go higher) equalled the latest in March stat of 45 set on 28th 2010. Crazy warm.
I noted that this summer down here on the east coast NSW we got some heat blasts but not by way of WA this summer I think. Mostly from the Simpson furnace.
Just looked and Roebourne has cruised past the 2010 stat. 45 point fricking 6 degrees. Maybe it will reach that 2006 record. insane

45.6 (as of now) at Roebourne is an Australian late-season record; no previous instances of anything above 45.0 after 21 March.

Roebourne on track to repeat yesterday. To get over 45 degrees two days in a row this late in March is fricking mad.
Mardie is even hotter than it was same time yesterday. Holy crap.

Yes Knot another warm day in the Pilbara region todaye but Mardie got to the highest maximum of 45.9 deg today which equals Roebourne's record from yesterday..

While Pt Hedland and Roebourne had a nice cool day with only 43.9 and 43.5 respectively.

Mardie 45+ again. So in the space of 3 days a long standing Australian March post equinox max temp has been reached. This is quite unbelievable.
