For information on locations and time periods not covered in these reports please contact us providing the postcode and the name of the closest major town to your location of interest.

Until further advised, subscribers can avoid these additional charges by quoting their allocated Registered User name when requesting individual reports for areas beyond the coverage of this service.
Location/Postcode based information
Thunderstorm observations are provided for locations across Western Australia where observations are recorded. The current month's summary is updated daily, where possible.
Only sites that have reported a thunderstorm appear in the summary, however absence from this list is not sufficient to confirm that a thunderstorm did not occur in the area on a particular day.
Postcodes (in grey) have been added to help users find the area relevant to their claim. For WA, the postcode list displays those postcodes that have a majority of their area within 50km of the listed location.
Please note that data for PERTH METRO appears at the top of the first page. If there have not been any thunderstorms in Perth Metro in the month then this will NOT appear.
District based information
Completed months have a daily district summary included in the report. This is attached shortly after the start of a new month. A map of forecast district boundaries is available at www.bom.gov.au/weather/wa/wa-forecast-map.shtml. The district summary can give a useful spatial representation of thunderstorm activity and also provides information about other phenomena such as strong winds, dust storms, frost and fog.
