MANY southern regions including parts of the Lower West, Central West, Great Southern and Central Wheatbelt have felt the sting of the dry April, with the May rain most welcome.
In the Lower West, Lancelin picked up 32mm to 9am Wednesday, bringing the total May rainfall just above average. Dwellingup also gained another 10mm, bringing the total monthly rainfall to over 200mm, the heaviest for May since 2005.
Morawa in the Central West saw 21mm, making it the heaviest rainfall event so far this year.
In the Perth district, Jandakot saw 13mm, firmly securing above average May rainfall by over 35mm.
As the low pressure trough responsible for the rainfall slowly shifts east, the rumble of thunder and showers will begin to ease.
A high pressure system will then build over southwest, bringing clear skies once again.
