AUS: Heat and rainfall records tumble across the south

See this special report on the causes of today's extreme weather.

WA: Heavy rain brings flooding to South Coast

Above: Albany radar rainfall echoes at about 2-hourly intervals from 11am Thursday (02.50UTC) to 3am Saturday (19.00 UTC). The radar shadow from NW to WSW, where the beam is obstructed by a plantation, means that heavy rain that fell westwards towards Bridgetown and Augusta is not shown.
Below: Rainfall distribution for the 24 hours to 9 this morning.
Bottom: Rainfall distribution for the 24 hours to 9am Saturday, although most of the rain fell before midnight this evening.

Heavy rain fell overnight and today in the lower Wheatbelt and Great Southern bringing flooding to southern coastal streams while cold, gale force winds caused widespread damage. Several days of cold, wet and windy weather caused the loss of 100,000 or more sheep.

Falls of 25 to over 100mm were recorded to 9 this morning at most stations SW of a line from Bremer Bay to Perth (see ). The heaviest falls were in the southern parts of the Central Wheat Belt, especially to the south of Katanning where Broomehill scored 142.0mm and Cranham 106.0. New records for April daily rainfall were set along the coast by four stations with fairly long records: Albany Airport 78.6mm (42 years), Mettler 103.0 (37), Esperance 66.0 (36) and well to the east Salmon Gums 51.0 (67).

During the day the rain contracted to an area about 100km around Albany, but intensified (see ). Most of the rain for the 24 hours to 9am Saturday (see ) fell before midnight, with Albany Airport recording its highest ever one-day total of 104.8mm. The Albany Town gauge recorded 80.6mm, its highest April total in 98 years. Other heavy totals were 125.8 at Kendenup to the NW of Mt Barker, and 111.4 at Mt Barker itself. The midnight to midnight total for Albany Airport was 165mm. The Airport's monthly average for April is 56.4. The heaviest 48-hour total was 194.4 at Mettler. A breakdown of the heavier downpours is below.

Cold, gale force winds added to the discomfort and damage. While daytime temperatures were a little above yesterday's record-shattering figures, much of the South West, Central West and Wheatbelt recorded maxima 6 to 11 below average. Gosnells City in Perth's southeast only reached 15.5, 11.1 below. Most of the South Coast failed to reach the mid teens, with Pemberton recording a top of only 12.0. Offshore from Perth, the wind gusted to 104km/h on Rottnest Island and 91km/h at Garden Island and Ocean Reef. Elsewhere, 91km/h was reached at Cape Leeuwin and 89km/h at Albany Airport. Rottnest Island's wind run for the 48 hours to 9am Saturday was 2,694km, an average of 56.1km/h (gale force begins at 63km/h).

Stock losses were the main product of the bad weather. Sheep stayed wet in cold, windy conditions from Wednesday evening until late today and early estimates are that as many as 100,000, mostly sheep less than a year old and breeding ewes recently sheared, may have been lost. This was despite tremendous efforts by communities to ease the plight of the beasts. Local service clubs assisted in rescuing live sheep and the heartbreaking task of burying tens of thousands dead -- a busy bee at Kojonup buried 17,000. Individual farm losses of 200 to 300 were common in the worst-hit areas around Darkan, Boyup Brook and Kojonup. The highest loss on one property was around 5,000. One Arthur River farmer lost over 2,200 weaners and young ewes, his future breeding stock. Another lost 1000 sheep, lambs and hoggets two weeks off shears.

Homes were flooded and roads were closed, damaged and blocked by downed trees and branches. Near Broomehill, which recorded the national highest rainfall total of 142.0mm to 9 this morning, a flash flood floated a bus off the Great Southern Highway. The town itself experienced flooding and extensive damage, while at Tambellup, 20km to the south, homes were evacuated and flooded after the Gordon River broke its banks. Flash flooding blocked roads and entered houses in Esperance, one house to a depth of a metre, as an April record 66mm fell to 9 this morning. 34.2mm was recorded in the town between 6 and 8am and 21.4mm in the hour to 2.30pm at the airport. The area is not prone to heavy rain, so drainage systems were unable to cope. The SES base was also flooded while personnel were out sandbagging, pumping out flooded homes and setting up roadblocks. Albany SES received over 150 calls to deal with roof damage and flooded properties. Property damage was also reported from Narrogin, Katanning and Denmark. Strong winds and fallen trees and branches caused blackouts in both metropolitan and rural areas.

On the positive side, the widespread rain has boosted pastures and given an early start to the cropping season across the state's main productive areas. In areas where water was being carted on Wednesday, dams are overflowing today.

AUS: Record April heat across large area

Dozens of April heat records fell in WA, NT, SA, NSW and TAS today as a remarkably broad hot airmass engulfed the central two-thirds of the continent and extended SE to TAS. The temperature anomaly maps above show the greatest departures from normal were in on the Eyre Peninsula and along the west coast of SA where both minima and maxima would have been considered hot for mid-summer. Overnight, Kyancutta's low of 24.5 was 15.1 above normal while today Nullarbor topscored with 42.0, an incredible 17.2 above normal.

Ceduna Airport, with 64 years of observational history, received the rare distinction of breaking both its highest maximum and minimum temperature records for April on the one day, and both by considerable margins. The airport's minimum of 25.5 was 0.6 above the previous record, and the maximum of 40.4 was 0.8 above. Elliston, 200km SE of Ceduna, added 2.1° to its previous record with a top of 38.3, remarkable for a station with a 43-year history.

In TAS and the NT, stations with significant histories also saw records comprehensively rewritten. On the TAS East Coast, Orford, with 37 years' record, added 2.0° to its April extreme with a top of 30.0 and Swansea (49 years) added 0.8 for a top of 30.1. Hobart Airport (47 years) recorded 30.7 compared to the previous high of 30.1, though the Hobart City site, with its longer 118-year history, fell 0.9 short of its April 1941 record. In the NT, Alice Springs (64 years) added 0.5 to its old record with a reading of 39.1, and Curtin Springs (40 years) and Jervois (37 years) both added about a degree to their old records.

Details of all known records are below.
