A SERIES of cold fronts and low pressure troughs brought rainfall to southern Australia during the week
Strong westerly flow brought the highest weekly totals over western Tasmania
The highest weekly total was 153.8 millimetres at Mount Read in western Tasmania, while weekly totals in excess of 100mm were widespread across western Tasmania
North-east Tasmania also saw some moderate to heavy daily falls during the week, including the highest daily total: 47.6mm in the 24 hours to 9am on June 24t at Mount Victoria (Una Plain).
Much of Victoria away from the north-west and central Gippsland, south-eastern New South Wales inland of the ranges, south-east South Australia and parts of the exposed peninsulas, northern and central Tasmania, and far south-west Western Australia received 10-50mm of rain for the week
High pressure dominated over the mainland, keeping most of the continent dry, although onshore flow brought weekly totals of 25-50mm around Innisfail on Queensland’s northern tropical coast but generally less than 15mm elsewhere.
