PERTH looks set to achieve its average annual rainfall for the first time since 2011 after a heavy downpour overnight.
The city recorded more than 19.4mm of rainfall overnight, and with further heavy rainfalls so far this morning it looks as though the city will surpass its average annual rainfall of 838.5mm.
The last time that mark was surpasses was 2011, when 860.8mm fell.
In 2010, the city recorded its second-driest year on record when just 503.88m fell.
#Perth has recorded 19.4mm of rainfall overnight, taking us up to 843.8mm so far this year. We just need 0.2mm to get the average annual rainfall! This will make it the first time since 2011. With showers approaching from the west on the RADAR it does look very possible!
