A scattering of storms for southwest WA

Graeme Brittain, Monday August 20, 2018 - 14:39 AEST

Storms look like sparking up later today over parts of the southwest as a low pressure system approaches.

The low is supported by an intrusion of cold air higher up in the atmosphere, which is helping to make the air unstable.

The main focus of the thunderstorm activity looks to be over the South West, South Coastal and Great Southern districts, with storms most likely from about late-afternoon to the early hours of Tuesday. Storms are also possible further north and east.

Winds will be quite gusty during any storm, possibly reaching up to about 90 km/h in some parts, as well as the chance of some hail in the mix.

Rainfall amounts are not anticipated to be especially high, with less than 10mm on the cards for most areas.

Most of the thunderstorm activity should have cleared by sunrise tomorrow.
