Wet August for the WestJames Casey, Thursday August 29, 2013 - 14:16 EST
Southwestern WA copped another August soaking yesterday with more rain, wind and storms on the way.
A trough moved through the Central West and Perth yesterday bringing 25 mm for Morawa, the heaviest August rain in 15 years. Jandakot recorded a significant 49mm bringing their August total to 178mm, the wettest August in at least two decades.
This won't be the end of the August rain for southwestern WA as a trough ahead of a front will move through Thursday evening bringing 5-10mm, strong winds and the chance of thunderstorms.
The cold front will pass through the southwest during Friday evening bringing a further 5-10mm of rain and wind gusts over 90 km/h.
Further ahead, rain and wind will ease slightly into the beginning of next week before another front moves through during Tuesday bringing more wind and rain. A high pressure system will then establish itself on Wednesday in the wake of this front bringing mostly dry conditions to the region.
