Plenty of storm activity developing offshore at present. The synoptic chart is looking interesting with a warm front near the coast tonight and a low over Perth tomorrow.

What's with all the lightning ahead of the rain on the lightning tracker? False readings or is there really a lot of clear air strikes?

if you set up the camera on timer
go and stand in front with the shelfie behind you
you will get a shelfie selfie
you can never always sometimes tell
when you least expect the most

Weather Situation
A low pressure system is expected to deepen just to the south of Perth overnight with a period of strong and gusty westerly winds around the northern side of the Low.

The Low is likely to cause WIDESPREAD DAMAGING WINDS to 100 kilometres per hour that could result in DAMAGE TO HOMES AND PROPERTY. DAMAGING WINDS are possible in the warning area after midnight Saturday with conditions easing during Sunday morning.

This is typical weather for this time of the year but winds may cause damage to property and make road conditions hazardous.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:

Store or weigh down loose objects such as outdoor furniture.
Have an emergency kit with a battery operated radio, torch, spare batteries and first aid kit.
Ensure pets and animals are in a safe area.
Move vehicles under cover.
Boat owners should securely moor their boats.
Campers should find shelter away from trees, power lines, storm water drains and streams.
If your home or property has significant damage, like a badly damaged roof or flooding, call the SES on 132 500.

The next warning will be issued by 11:00 pm WST Saturday.
This warning is also available through TV and Radio broadcasts, the Bureau's web site at www.bom.gov.au or call 1300 659 213.

There's a nice red bit headed directly towards Bunbury atm according to the BOM tracking. Might go see what things look like to the north. :)

Yeah, not so sure about a tornado. Perhaps simply a good outflow or maybe a minor funnel forming in the fractus.
