It’s been a varied week in weather. We’ve had a variety of temperatures starting with a three, and some spots have even recorded rather furious storms. If you’re wondering about all the specific details from a week of weather to remember, JR our resident Weather Ferret is here again to provide all the details.
Over the weekend we had a number of isolated storms popping up over the Perth area. There were several Severe Thunder warnings issued for the southern coastal suburbs to Mandurah. The warnings also included heavy rain and large hail, however that came to no avail in most places. The best rainfall was recorded at Swanbourne, with 1.2mm. The storms are lingering, with a chance later today over the eastern hills, as well as a possibility later in the week.
