Some isolated t storms should pop up between Gero and Perth tomorrow. Looks like the last couple of days of October should finally bring some decent summer heat.

There is precisely and exactly nothing on the 256km Perth radar as of 6.11pm.

I think that the chances of hearing rumbles will be higher between 3.00am and 7.00am.

The activity on 256km Perth radar at 8.45pm has increased by a factor of million or more. A million times nothing is still nothing.

Not a single cloud in the sky, sod all on the radar...yet I can sense something building in the distance. I went outside to grab my kitty and there was that feeling in the air.

Somethings stirring... On another point, went down south last weekend, wetland areas overloaded with mozzies. Stood out of the car for a rest and got attacked by the at least 100 of the buggers, bloody huge(50 cent piece size) down busselton way. All this rain late in the season, means prime breeding conditions, not too many in Perth yet luckily... Big Ross River Virus infection incoming

Not happening tonight or tomorrow by the looks. The models are not agreeing with one another.

Could be jumping the gun, but a line of echoes popped up to the NE on the 256km radar. See if anything develops in the next few frames.. Wind is gettin up there, gusts to 70 in the eastern burbs.

There is a line of light showers lying East-West heading south on Perth radar. When I was outside I saw no flashes but I did stay outside long because of the wind chill. That easterly is very lazy.

Yeah there is a line of showers heading south. Bulk of it seems to be in the east but it stretches to Rottnest Island. Looks pretty cool on my balcony, too. Shafts of rain falling in a curve shape.

Marangaroo had a heavy shower of rain smell. Next to no drops actually hit the ground.

Yeah most of the rain seems to be in the sky. Also, I just heard a rumble from it! It's sunny here though and the rain's to the south-east of me, bit to the west.

WZ showing a line of increasing activity between Perff and Merridin and upwards to Kalgoorlie
with most of the activity in two clumps , one around Merridin , the other north of Kal
you can never always sometimes tell
