Australia Thu 15 Nov 2018 NT: Heavy storms hit Darwin. Three thunderstorms rolled across Darwin overnight 14/15 Nov as the storm season hits its peak. As usually happens with thunderstorms, rainfall was extremely variable. Berrimah CSIRO, 10km NE of the CBD, recorded 105mm, yet Darwin Hospital, only 8km to its NW, only recorded 21mm. The rest of the city recorded something in between, with the CBD (Stokes Hill) picking up 68 and the airport 73mm.

Australia Thu 15 Nov 2018 WA: Lightning brings $3.6m fire bill around Dalwallinu. Up to 20 fires in crops were sparked by dry thunderstorm lightning strikes in the Dalwallinu area of the WA northern wheatbelt, 200km NE of Perth, late on Thursday 15th. The fires burnt through about 30 sq km of cereal crops in the largest blaze, while smaller fires also destroyed crops. The damage is estimated at at least $3.6m. The fires come in what is an otherwise good season for wheat in the region. [ABC]


Provisional records set or equalled today

Obvious errors have been corrected, however this is realtime data which has not yet been validated. Full validation of official records by the BoM Quality Management System (QMS) is a much more complex process and may take some months. Go here for further information on this records section and how the QMS works. These provisional records are based on data received as at 1404 EST on 16/11/2018.
