WA: Fronts bring heavy rain to the South West. A procession of fronts crossing WA has brought heavy rain and caused isolated minor flooding. Several records were set in the 24 hours to 9am with Windy Harbour's 61.4mm its highest one-day July total in 30 years. A few locations scored over 50mm, including Cape Leeuwin and Jarrahwood, with minor flooding reported in the Thomson River. Rain eased after 9am, but further fronts are lining up to the SW, as the charts show.
