I suspect many of our suburbs have received more rain than the CBD has - rain bands tend to go from NW to SE around here.
Generally in Adelaide, the closer you are to the hills the wetter it is.
No, really? :)
When I can't see the hills, that's how I know it's raining...looks like Adl cracked the 100 yesterday?
Indeed it did. Melbourne made it today, Hobart on Tuesday.
Obviously the hills are much wetter than the plains, but even some distance from the base of the hills there's a pretty strong west-east gradient in rainfall (1981-2010 averages are 546 mm at Kent Town, 437 at the airport). Haven't looked closely at north-south gradients near the coast.
Where is Perth in all this, behind all the other capitals as usual?
Yes - still sitting on 76. 3rd lowest on record for January-May (and lowest for the 9 months September-May).
I didn't realise it had rained so much overnight.
We've had more rain in the past 5 days than the previous 5 months and 5 days.
Yeah those other bloody capitals got to 100mm for the year before us but we've almost gone and done it again just in the past week. That's how Perth operates though, wait and see if it works out for everyone else then go and do it bigger and better.
