Western Australia Satellite Notes

An unusual weather pattern is bringing storms to parts of southern Western Australia, with residents in the Central West, Lower West, Great Southern and Central Wheatbelt districts told to brace for damaging winds and possible flash flooding.
While northern parts of the country have experienced unseasonably warm temperatures, winter is business as usual in the south.
The former owner of the Grantham quarry that allegedly contributed to the fatal 2011 flood has said the western embankment beside the quarry was a natural landmark and not manmade.
