Well today a car crashes into my building in spectacular style (QV1) and tomorrow the first decent cold front will "smash" into Perth. Will take my camera, and hopefully get some good shots smile

I think snow on Bluff Knoll is under reported- would anyone agree with me? Given the prevailing westerly flow it should receive more snow than Oberon town, which is at the same height and at a similar latitude on the east coast.

Coming front will not compare with March storm: Bureau
Wednesday July 7, 2010 - 22:16 EST


The Bureau of Meteorology does not expect the coming storm to be anywhere near as damaging as the hail storm which hit Perth in March. - ABC
The Fire and Emergency Services Authority (FESA) believes there is a risk that houses still under repair from a devastating hail storm in March could be further damaged as two frontal systems head towards the WA coast, the first to hit Augusta and Margaret River in the morning (Thursday).

Residents from Kalbarri to Albany are being urged to prepare for the storm by securing their properties, moving vehicles undercover and remaining inside, while the storm passes.

FESA Operations Officer Will Blackshaw says properties damaged in the storm earlier this year are likely to be hardest hit.

"We may see damage caused to the households who sustained damage in the March storms earlier this year. We may also see damaged sustained by flying objects from people not securing loose items down in their houses."

The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting damaging winds of up to 100 kilometres an hour with stronger gusts in some local areas.

There is also the possibility of hail, although the bureau's Neil Bennett says tomorrow's system is not on the scale of the storm which hit Perth earlier this year causing more than a billion dollars damage.

"When we're talking about the hail which is potentially possible on Friday I don't think it's going to compare in any way, shape or form to the experience we had in March. This is going to be small, localised, almost pea sized hail. (It) shouldn't cause any damage at all. It's just an indication of how cold the atmosphere is going to be."

The first severe storm of the season approaches Perth - ABC
The Bureau of Meteorology is warning a severe cold front will hit the South-West and Perth today.

Residents from Kalbarri to Albany are being urged to prepare for the storm by securing their properties, moving vehicles undercover and remaining inside while the storm passes.

Damaging winds of up to 100 kilometres per hour are forecast with stronger gusts in some local areas and there is also the possibility of hail.

The bureau's duty forecaster Mark Paull says the front is expected to reach the metropolitan area around midday.

"But the stronger winds and really squally conditons won't be experienced in the metro area until probably later on this evening going into tonight when the worst conditions will build up," he said.

"We'll get the first line move through and then conditions will continue to deteriorate throughout the day with the strongest winds and heaviest falls overnight and into early tomorrow morning."

Mr Paull says the weather will ease late on Friday.

"The winds should start to moderate once we get past lunchtime Friday and drop off as we head into Friday evening," he said.

He says householders need to be prepared.

"At this stage, I would say it probably would be because we haven't had much this winter at all, so just the mere fact that we haven't had much and it's been fairly dry means that there's the chance that quite a few gutters will be full of leaves and drains will be blocked," he said.

"So, no matter what sort of rainfall we get there'll certainly be some sort of flooding I imagine and there'll be a lot of wind associated with it."

Frosty mornings giving way to big wind and rain
Brett Dutschke, Tuesday July 6, 2010 - 16:05 EST
Southwestern Western Australia has had two weeks worth of cold, frosty mornings but it's about to change as strong winds and rain arrive later this week.

The wind and rain will develop as soon as Thursday, bringing an end to the record long spell of cold mornings.

Rain will be widespread across the South West Land Division (SWLD) with almost everywhere getting some by the end of the week. Even the inland Gascoyne and Goldfields will get a bit.

Some places will get rain each day through to mid-next week as the weather pattern finally moves enough to allow a few cold fronts through.

By next Wednesday parts of the Lower West and Southwest should gain more than 100mm of rain, most falling this Thursday night and Friday with the first front - a big turn around after one of the driest June's on record.

With each front there will also be bursts of strong winds, possibly strong enough to bring down trees and powerlines. For most of the SWLD the strongest will be on Friday when northwesterlies are a chance to exceed 100km/h south of about Perth.

Similarly strong gusts are possible on each of the following days until Tuesday, south of about Perth and west of about Esperance.

Much of the country's west has been shivering through cold nights for more than a week, but the recent cold blast has dropped minimums to record breaking lows.

A low is spiralling just off the south coast of Western Australia and is directing cool winds into the state. These winds have remained dry and the clear skies are allowing overnight temperatures to dip far below their average.

Locations in the Central West and Lower West districts fell as much as 10 degrees below the average, breaking their July record minimums. Such locations included:
- Pearce: -2 degrees, coldest July night in 66 years of records
- Badgingarra: 1 degree, coldest July night in 45 years of records

Geraldton received their coldest night in 69 years of records for any month, falling 10 degrees below average to -0.4 degrees.

Perth has seen their longest streak of minimums below five degrees in 113 years of records, after dropping to 0.6 degrees last night.

The nights will remain cool over the next few days, but will not be as extreme as the past few nights. By the middle of the week cloud will move in hold the minimums closer to average.

Perth is experiencing a string of cold nights - ABC
Perth is experiencing a record cold spell and it is set to continue.

The city has broken the record for the number of consecutive cold nights below five degrees.

Last night was the 11th cold night in a row, which breaks the July 1997 record of 10.

The Weather Bureau expects the cold spell to continue for another two to three days.

Chilly morning for southern WA
Rosebud Lambert, Saturday July 3, 2010 - 17:01 EST
A cold front clipping WA has led to another frosty morning for Perth and the southwest region with some areas dropping below zero degrees.

The front brought a pool of cold air but little cloud, allowing morning temperatures to plummet across the south, leading to wide areas of frost. Perth fell to 0 degrees, the coldest July morning in at least 17 years. Perth Airport dropped to -1 degree, the coldest July morning in 66 years of records.

Some areas dropped up to 9 degrees below average. Hyden in the Great Southern region fell to a freezing -4 degrees. Pingelly shivered through their coldest morning in 100 years with a minimum of -2.5 degrees.

Southern WA will have to keep the extra blankets out with the next few mornings expected to be up to 6 degrees below average, although it will be a little warmer than today's chilly wake up call. An increase in cloud from Monday will lift minimums closer to average.

Another cold front will approach WA from Thursday 8th bringing another burst of cold air. Despite the cold air, temperatures are unlikely to drop as low as today as cloud cover with the front will act to moderate temperatures.

and finally - I really should have posted these articles earlier but anyway... doesn't matter.

Perth has just shivered through its coldest June in 15 years, according to weatherzone.com.au.

Minimum temperatures in Perth were the lowest they’ve been since 2006, averaging at 7.1 degrees, one-and-a-half below the norm. This was helped by a spate of frosty mornings during the last week of the month.

From Thursday 24th to Monday 28th, morning minimum temperatures dropped below three degrees, the longest string of temperatures this low in at least 17 years.

“A cold front pushed through the southern half of Western Australia during the 23rd,” explained Samuel Terry, meteorologist for weatherzone.com.au. “This cold front was immediately preceded by very dry winds and clear skies, all contributing to Perth’s run of cold mornings, including the second coldest morning in 130 years of records.”

By combining minimum and maximum temperatures, it's clear that residents of Perth just experienced the chilliest June since 1995.

“Minimums were the main contributor to the overall coldness of June, but maximum temperatures were also below average,” said Terry. “There were some days during the period where a blanket of cloud covered much of the west, keeping maximum temperatures down.”

It wasn’t only the mercury that was low in Perth in the last month. Rainfall totals in the region were generally less than half of the long-term average. The city itself only collected 51 millimetres, as compared to the June average of 135 millimetres.

“A broad high pressure ridge sat across the southern half of the country for the majority of June,” Terry explained. “A ridge like this forces most rain-bearing systems further south, and it has been no different this month.”

“For the rest of winter, rainfall is looking more positive, with median or above-median rainfall expected, which is good news given that winter is by far the wettest time of year for the region.”

After the freeze, the rain rolls in LIAM PHILLIPS
July 8, 2010 - 7:46AM

Weatherzone: Perth storm tracker
Perth's record cold snap continues, but one of our driest starts to winter will end with a bang today as a strong storm prepares to hit Western Australia.

The unprecedented run of official cold weather - where the temperature dips below 5 degrees - was forecast to finish this morning.

But despite conditions easing from the frosty, near-zero weather of the past two weeks, the minimum still managed to dip down to 4.8 degrees at 1am. This made it the 15th day in a row of officially cold weather.

The cold snap is set to end today courtesy of a fierce storm that is looming off the WA coast.

While the minimum is forecast to jump to 9 degrees overnight, the storm will bring heavy showers this morning, increasing during the afternoon and evening.

The Bureau of Meteorology says there will also be possible thunderstorms tonight, with strong and gusty winds developing during the day.

The Bureau has issued a severe weather warning for the south-west of the state, including Perth, Geraldton Mandurah, Bunbury, Busselton and Albany.

The front will cause damaging wind and heavy rain, with gusts up to 90kmh this morning, strengthening to 100kmh by tonight and tomorrow. Hail storms are also possible.

The State Emergency Service has advised people to secure loose objects, move vehicles under cover and stay inside away from windows.

If caught outside, people should find shelter away from trees, powerlines, storm water drains and streams. Boat owners should make sure their boats are securely moored.

Drivers have been warned to take extra care on the roads. If driving through heavy rain, you should slow down and turn your lights on or if visibility becomes low pull over and park until it passes.

Actually not all that bad out there. Just bought take away lunch from Matsuri (had to have another sticky beak).

Some heavy rain made the Narrows disappear for a bit ... click on pics for larger versions if you are interested.

WA is starting to feel the force of a strong cold front that is set to deliver heavy rain and potentially damaging winds to the southwest.

A Severe Weather Warning is in place across the southwest, including the Perth metro area, with wind gusts in excess of 90km/h expected to lash the region. Heavy rain will also feature with some areas expected to receive over 60mm in the next 48 hours.

The Lower West and Southwest regions have felt the start of the front with Busselton already receiving flood inducing rain rates of 7mm in 10 minutes. Busselton has seen 21mm since 9am and Mandurah 17mm, and the heaviest rain is yet to reach the coast.

Northwesterly winds are strengthening ahead of the front. Mandurah recorded gusts up to 82km/h this afternoon with Perth experiencing gusts up to 57km/h. Wind gusts will increase across southern WA tomorrow as the front pushes east.

Rainfall will increase overnight and continue on Friday, spreading from the southwest and across southern WA. The hardest hit areas are likely to be the Southwest Land Division and parts of the Goldfields and Eucla.

Boy that is a strong front coming in with cold pool right behind. Very strong, should be some solid falls from frequent heavy showers and some thunderstorms embedded as well. Squally winds, possible tornado as well given the shear. Enjoy and keep safe!

A ripper band moving through the metro area right now (4.20WST) and good to see coverage in the falls. 39mm as far north as Geraldton and inland falls starting to tally up as well.
