Third driest June on record for Perth

30 Jun, 2010 03:47 AM

There's one day to go, but Perth's wettest month of the year will spectacularly fail to live up to its billing.

Bureau of Meteorology figures show that 51.4mm of rain has fallen in the Mt Lawley rain gauge, making it the third driest June on record.

The month is usually Perth's wettest, with an average 176.7mm.

With no rain forecast before the end of the month, this June looks certain to be wetter than only 2006, when 24.6mm fell, and 1989.

Four of the eight driest years have occurred since the turn of the century.

It has also been a dry 2010, with rain for the year to date just 205.6mm, compared to the average 373.3mm.

However, other parts of the state have set records of their own.

The wettest day anywhere in WA this month was 120mm at Winning, near Carnarvon, on June 16, a new June record for the site.
