A big bag of NOTHING in the rainfall department for WA.


A dry picture continues under a ridge of high pressure that is anchored out over the southwest Indian Ocean, sending in stable conditions.


These conditions are expected to remain in place for the coming 7-10 days with no signals for rainfall at this time for the remainder of April.


However, there are some signs that we could have the first set of cold fronts try and approach the southwest of WA during the first week of May, with not a huge amount of rainfall making it inland at this stage, but certainly there is that sign the pattern could break down in that period.


This chart is for May the 5th. IT WILL CHANGE.



So the next 10-15 days looks pretty boring.


Only coastal showers and drizzle expected with the movement of frontal weather well south of the WA coast. Onshore winds may produce that light and patchy activity.


No rainfall at this stage for the inland or north, with the Indian Ocean as quiet as a mouse and dry air entrenched over the region.


You can see it is not going anywhere anytime soon.
