TOP PRIORITY FOR IMMEDIATE BROADCAST
SEVERE WEATHER WARNING
for Widespread Damaging Winds with Locally Destructive Gusts and Abnormally High
For people in the Southwest District and adjacent parts of the Lower West, Great
Southern and South Coastal Districts, including Mandurah, Bunbury and Busselton.
Issued at 3:45 pm on Friday 30 May 2008
A low pressure system and rain band are developing off the west coast. The low
is expected to deepen and pass to the south of Cape Leeuwin late Saturday
morning or early afternoon. The passage of the low is expected to cause widespread damaging winds to 100 kilometres per hour with locally destructive gusts in excess of 125 kilometres per hour
. Severe winds are forecast to develop
in coastal parts of the Southwest District early Saturday morning, then extend
to remaining parts during Saturday morning and early afternoon. The rain band is
likely to produce locally heavy rainfall through the Southwest, Lower West and
adjacent parts of the Central West. Thunderstorms are also possible in the
warning area and remaining parts of the Lower West and Central West Districts.
Higher than normal tides may result in inundation of low-lying coastal areas,
The FESA - State Emergency Service advises that people should secure loose items
and stay indoors when strong winds develop. Boat owners should ensure that small
craft are securely moored. Driving conditions will be hazardous. Should flash
flooding occur, avoid affected roads, watercourses and floodways in the vicinity
until safe to proceed.
The next warning will be issued by 10:00 pm Friday
So it finally looks like a decent system that will give us more than 10mm
Weird that Qld is getting heavy rain.... i would expect that in jan-march rather than now... rain hoggers !!!!
So Perth should get a good soaking tomorrow.
