    Early storm blows out Broome’s monthly average rainfall
    Monday October 28, 2013 – 13:17 EDT

    Broome has received almost the average amount of rain that falls through October and November, all from the one thunderstorm.

    Nine millimetres fell in the town on Friday afternoon, in the first storm for the season.

    However, the Bureau of Meteorology says it was caused by a trough hovering in the region rather than a proper monsoon system.

    Duty forecaster Nadine Baillard says the falls have come unusually early in the town this year.

    “Our October average rainfall for Broome is 1.4mm and in November that increases to 8.9mm, so yes the 8.6mm would be higher than the usually average rainfall for October,” she said.
