Weekly rainfall update + rainfall outlook 11 June 2024

Bureau of Meteorology, June 11, 2024

In the 24 hours to 9 am 4 June, a trough and cold front brought a band of rain and showers from the Kimberley in Western Australia, through the Northern Territory and across much of South Australia, with totals of 1-10mm generally, and some areas recording over 15mm.

From June 6-8, a trough developed off the New South Wales south coast, which deepened into a coastal low and interacted with humid south-easterly flow, generating widespread rainfall and localised heavy falls across coastal and adjacent inland areas.

Across the Illawarra district, weekly rainfall totals exceeded 100mm, with isolated totals over 200mm.

Some stations had June daily rainfall total records.

On the south coast of NSW, Culburra Treatment Works recorded the highest weekly total of 286mm, and the highest daily total of 187mm in the 24 hours to 9am on June 6.

In Western Australia from June 7-10, a cold front brought heavy rain across large areas of the south-west that have had severe rainfall deficiencies in recent months.

Weekly totals were above 100mm in parts of WA’s Central West and Gascoyne districts, and above 50mm along the coast in Lower West and South West districts.

Many stations had June record daily or multi-day rainfall totals, including Kalbarri with 69mm in the 24 hours to 9am on June 9, and Mullewa with 131mm over the three days to 9am on June 9.

Weekly totals of 1-25mm were recorded along the south coast of Australia, across most of Tasmania, and in parts of far north and southern Queensland and parts of northern and inland NSW for the week ending 9am June 10.
