Here is something I don't think I have seen before:

Flood Warning for the Northern and Southern Interior Districts

Issued at 10:10 am WST on Monday 20 January 2014
Western Australia Flood Warning Centre

Widespread moderate rainfall of 20mm to 50mm with isolated heavier falls up to 150mm is forecast for the Northern and Southern Interior Districts during the 24 hour period to 9am Tuesday.

Areas of flooding throughout the Northern and Southern Interior District are expected to continue during Monday and into Tuesday.

For those who are not familiar with WA forecast districts the northern and southern interior basically covers the Great Sandy, Gibson, and Great Victoria deserts.

Cheers

Too true Notso, not too many people living out in those areas, just the indigenous communities.

But just listening the the WA Country Hour on ABC and this system looks likely to produce rain over a large area of the state which will probably by welcomed by the pastoralists.

Weatherzone said 200mm @ Rabbit Flat, and 250mm @ Supplejack Station. That's great rain for that country!

Keep her going, Hughie.

G'day Explorers

Interesting post, this time last Monday things were warming up a little with steady 44 degrees day time temperatures recorded for four days straight, night time temperatures were hovering around the 28 Celsius mark, the airconditioning was struggling at keeping the house comfortably cool ~ today it's raining like there's no tomorrow with a good burst of wind to help it along. We live in a land of contradictions weather wise.

A sad twist of fate for two mine workers in the field just last Wednesday, a miscalculation of sorts saw a 26 year old bloke do a perish and his offsider was and still is in a bad way because of heat stress, the contradiction is that just five days later they might have drowned in the Pilbara.

Safe travels :

Hope so, the locals in Central and
West NSW could do with a bit too.

That was the start of this system's journey south I think. Very heavy rain in the Pilbara yesterday and overnight, 96mm at marble bar for the 24 hours to 9am.
Light falls starting in the goldfields. Should be a great year for travelling in the deserts.
