Bluff Knoll might receive another dusting of snow tomorrow morning, as Bureau of Meteorology predicts a chance of white powder flurries over the Stirling Range.

According to the BOM Station Manager, Jason Balhorn there is a likely chance of snow between 2am to 11am on Friday, August 10.

“It’s likely there might be snow but that’s not to say there’s a 100 percent chance for you to climb up there and see snow either,” he said.

“There’s a very big chance it’s going to rain too, so it won’t be a pleasant time walking up there.”

Stirling Range recorded snow for four days in a row last week, as snow chasers made their way to the top well into the morning to take photos, make snowmen and even hitting the skis.

However, Mr Balhorn said he never would not recommend anyone to climb up without taking caution.

“I personally never recommend people climb up because I would hate somebody to hurt themselves.”

Meanwhile, a severe weather warning is still in place in the Great Southern region today, with damaging winds reaching 76km/h at 7.44am.

“That was our big thunderstorm that came through this morning which came a little bit of hail as well,”

“41 knots is pretty strong and there will be a couple more thunderstorms tonight.”
