The Latest On The Expect Downpour Today

The severe weather warning for the South West, South Coast and western regions of the Great Southern remains in place for this afternoon, but there's a chance we could be at the back end of the storms.

Following some incredible rainfall figures in the last 24 hours for the Perth metro area, parts of the Avon Valley and Great Southern, the heavy rain may be starting to come to a halt.

However, according to the Bureau of Meteorology, the low pressure system is expected to bring heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding.

The latest forecast suggests conditions will ease from the north over the warning area during the day, with heavy rainfall easing throughout during the afternoon. 

Locations which may be affected include Albany, Bunbury, Busselton, Katanning, Manjimup, Margaret River, Mount Barker and Narrogin.

Overnight rainfall figures were staggering with Perth picking up 96mm up to 9am this morning, Garden Island 108mm and Rottnest Island 142mm.

In regional areas, Northam had 79mm, York 74mm, Williams 58mm and Pinjarra 75mm.

The conditions have also brought about some incredible sunset shots in the last couple of days or so.
