Weather extremes
Australia is a large continent, and so it is not surprising it can experience extremes in weather. Perth has just had its hottest summer on record, but in contrast the east coast is experiencing heavy rainfall and wide-spread flooding. The Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory has had a bit of both: the image above was taken in mid-February on a day forecast to exceed 40C, however the previous weekend the site recorded 30mm of rain!
