Great temps in the Kimberley and Pilbara.
A few places in the Pilbara recording about 35ºC.
Most of the Kimberley nudging 40ºC this week.
The heat is building ahead of the coming wet season.

A couple of distinctly different indigenous seasons.
The people near Broome recognise 6 seasons. Those further toward the NT boarder in the Kimberley have 3 seasons with 3 sub-seasons.

indications are good for aurora tonite
if you have dark skies to the south then keep a lookout in the later evening

Was reading something from a US scientist who specialised in solar activity. She stated the filament (or something to that effect) was unlikely to reach the Southern Hemisphere and that the Northern Hemisphere should be in for a great show again tonight (their tonight)

An amazing day right through the state.
A weak build up in the NE. Amounted to little.

A small amount of precip in the Pilbara near paraburdoo.

A few light falls about coastal areas in the last 24hrs or so.

Check the charts folks, BoM or Index page) some sunny skies about most of the state this week.

Are you using Meteye? You should, it delivers very accurate forecasts in 3hr blocks.

Dunno about Saturday but I'm interested to see what happens later on Sunday and into Monday. BOM is being cagey though.

Just wondering if there is likely to be any severe weather warnings issued for Sunday?

A sharp eye has John Ford. He was watching the ISS stream.
It went over the approaching cold front and associated cold pool. He got a screen shot for us.

34.2C at the Perth site just before 3, certainly going to be a big contrast to the coming days. SWW out now!

http://www.weatherzone.com.au/news/sout ... ing/145217

The mercury soared in the nation's southwest today with Perth recording its hottest September day on record, however heavy rain and cooler temperatures will arrive on Sunday.

Temperatures have climbed into the thirties across the South West Land Division as northerly winds drew a warm airmass from northern parts of the state into the south. Maximums climbed as much as 10-15 degrees above average throughout the region, with many areas even recording record high September temperatures.

Perth reaching a more summer-like 34 degrees today, which is the city's hottest day since April and more remarkably the hottest September day on record.

Temperatures have been steadily rising over northern WA for the past few weeks, with daily temperatures reaching the mid-to-high thirties each day. This heat migrated south today, with Morawa forecast to reach as high as 36 degrees, which is 13 degrees above the September average.

The heat will be forced away from the southwest tomorrow as a cold front pushes in. The front will source a high amount of moisture off the anomalously warm seas of the southern Indian Ocean, to bring heavy and widespread rain on Sunday. This will combine with strong winds to make for a wild and wooly start to the new week.

Widespread falls of 15-30mm are expected from the Central West to the South West, which will spread inland to provide a soaking to the Central Wheat Belt and Great Southern. The rainfall will give a good boost to water storages before entering the dry months of the year.

On Monday, the rain will push further east with only a few showers persisting across the southwest. The temperatures will also be much cooler, staying as much as 10 degrees below what is being felt today.
