Wetter than average August for Perth

Graeme Brittain, Tuesday August 14, 2018 - 17:03 AEST

Even though we are not yet half way through August, Perth has already recorded higher than average rainfall.

The 20.0mm of rain that fell last night tipped Perth above average.

A total of 133.0mm has been collected so far this month, as of 09:00 WST this morning, equating to about 108% of the average August rainfall.

For the remainder of August, models are indicating further spells of rain, with no strong signals of a trend to significantly drier weather for the remainder of winter.

This winter is the first time since 2003 that all three months have recorded above average rainfall.

The record for the highest winter rainfall is unlikely to be broken, given that it stands at 957mm - in the winter of 1945.
