Rain has come in time to improve the wildflower season across parts of WA.
It’s unusual to see cold fronts extending right up the west coast, with rain falling in the Pilbara, from Karijini National Park (which has been very busy) to Mt Augustus.
Denham, Kalbarri and Northampton all got rain.
It moved through in a band from Geraldton to Dalwallinu and Merredin. Morawa, Mullewa and Carnamah got some.
There was rain through the Gascoyne-Murchison, from Carnarvon to Three Rivers.
Goldfields towns like Cue got some as did the wildflower band through Yalgoo, Ninghan and Paynes Find, and even out east as far as Leonora and Laverton.
For areas where carpets of everlastings usually bloom in late August, like Ninghan, it could mean a later and better season than we otherwise might have expected, particularly around granite outcrops.
At Ninghan Station last Sunday, there were still just the green shoots of flowers coming — so the rain could be perfectly timed to kick-up the season.
