cloudy and very windy in Albany
BoM Albany has recorded gusts over 50 km/hr
and according to Met-eye it looks like straightening over the next few hours
Albany forecast has possible storms right through to Wednesday next week

Just got woken up by very loud hail with no rain on my tin roof. Radar has a nice big blot on it heading over me heading south east.

Yeah I think it will try all day to rain... Humidity is there ... As long as it heats up well we could be in with a good chance...

Tuesday onwards looks far better for Perth to get any rain and storms.

Looking at the models on BSCH for Friday the CAPE (Convective Available Potential Energy) near Perth is as big as I have seen it.

There looks like there will be "volcanic eruption" type thunderstorms to the east of Perth latre in the afternoon.

I'm not on Twitter so I'll stay in the dark ages and keep posting here. Speaking of dark ages, wow is that smoke cloud eerie from here in Collie! (We've just recently moved here). Hoping we get some stormage later to wash it out (and if it puts the fire out as well so much the better). Hope everyone is ok out there.

Welcome to the South West Davo!
I would love to see some stormage but there's way too much lightning for my liking at the moment. It's so dry all over the South West and I'd hate to see more fires started with resources being stretched as they are already. Hopefully there's a bit of rain that actually reaches the ground out of the incoming weather.

It looks like the Waroona area is about to get drenched. Lets hope it helps with the fires.
