Weekly rainfall update + rain outlook 21 September 2022

Bureau of Meteorology, September 20, 2022

A STRONG cold front embedded with storms crossed southern Western Australia on September 13 with totals of 30-60 millimetres observed around Busselton.

The front continued over south-east Australia on September 15, connecting with a complex low south of the Great Australian Bight, bringing significant falls west of the ranges in northern New South Wales and the Queensland border region, including some daily records for September.

Weekly totals of 25-100mm resulted in increased flooding in catchments on the western slopes of the Great Dividing Range and some inland areas of NSW, and caused minor flooding in some catchments around Melbourne and north-east Tasmania.

Weekly totals of 1-25mm fell further inland, along the southern coast, in northern South Australia and into central Queensland and around Darwin.

Alpine regions had daily totals of 10-50mm at the end of the week, much of it falling as snow in Victoria.

The highest weekly total at a Bureau gauge was 152.8mm at Perisher Valley.

The highest daily total at a Bureau gauge was 77.4mm at Barraba (Mount Lindsay) to 9am on September 16.
