Here we go again… more bad weather on its way. From the Bureau of Meteorology:
For people in parts of WA southwest of a line from Mandurah to Hyden to Israelite Bay. This includes people in, near or between the following towns: Mandurah, Narrogin, Katanning, Bridgetown, Margaret River, Busselton, Bunbury, Albany, and Esperance.
A deep low pressure system will move south of Albany and an associated strong cold front will move over southwest parts of the State during Saturday.
This weather system is likely to cause WIDESPREAD DAMAGING WINDS to 100 kilometres per hour that could result in DAMAGE TO HOMES AND PROPERTY. In isolated areas DANGEROUS GUSTS in excess of 125 kilometres per hour could cause SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE OR DESTRUCTION TO HOMES AND PROPERTY.
DAMAGING WINDS are likely to develop south west of a line Busselton to Windy Harbour between 3am and 5am Saturday, and extend to south west of a line Mandurah to Hyden to Israelite Bay after 8am Saturday. Small hail is possible, with thunderstorms likely south of a line Bunbury to Esperance.
DANGEROUS SURF CONDITIONS are likely which could cause SIGNIFICANT beach erosion.
This front is expected to be windier than a typical front and is likely to produce the kind of weather that is around twice a year.
The Department of Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:
If your home or property has significant damage, like a badly damaged roof or flooding, call the SES on 132 500.
This warning is also available through TV and Radio broadcasts, the Bureau's web site at www.bom.gov.au or call 1300 659 213.
