Mistakes are common with BoM, and who knows when these are corrected, if they are.
Apparently Beverley, in the WA state’s south-west had 402mm rain last night, says BoM’s rainfall map. Beverley is the red spot. (Update, it’s a DAFWA site that has a recording problem. I wonder when BoM notice the error on their data records)

Warwick Hughes often finds anomalies like this, and plenty of missing data. Another example: Example of error in Bureau of Meteorology rain data.
I will check back to see when this is fixed. Weather data is very important for people working in agriculture and fishing, it needs to be accurate like it was before automatic instruments became the norm. A superb website, blighted by silly errors.
