Weekly rainfall update + outlook 2 July 2024

Bureau of Meteorology July 2, 2024

A COLD front with a low-pressure system off the south-west coast of Western Australia brought rain across much of the state including the Pilbara and Gascoyne.

A low-pressure trough drew in tropical moisture from the Coral Sea, generating widespread showers and thunderstorms over central eastern Queensland, with a number of daily rainfall records for June.

A cold front in the south-east brought rain across South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania before moving over New South Wales, south-west Qld and southern Northern Territory.

Weekly totals of 25-50mm were recorded in many areas in the west of WA, south-eastern Australia, north-west NSW extending into north-east South Australia, and south-west and central-eastern Qld.

Weekly totals of 50-100mm were recorded in areas of central-eastern Qld, southern and western WA, southern SA and western Tasmania, with small pockets of more than 100mm in coastal Qld and northern Tas.

Qld had the highest daily total of 97mm in Melrose in the South Burnett region in the 24 hours to 9am on June 27, and the highest weekly total of 180mm fell in Mirani, just west of Mackay.
