We can expect a few garden variety thunderstorms over tomorrow and into Friday in the SW
The front will be slow moving, looking at the Meteye forecasts.

I think it is quite possible I can go to the gym and it will still be dry when I leave about 11.30 am. This is for Kingsway/Marangaroo.

The afternoon however is quite likely to be sloppy.
