Broome has officially recorded its wettest year on record, a mere 7 weeks into the year.

Record rainfall aided significantly by Cyclone Joyce and Cyclone Kelvin have meant the town has received 1497.2mm so far this year, eclipsing the previous record of 1496.6mm set back in 2000.

January (940mm) and February (557.2mm and counting) were both the wettest on record, with January also being the town's wettest month on record.

With the cyclone season persisting through to April and the remainder of the year to come, Broome has the chance to break its previous by a significant margin.
