    Severe Weather Warning
    IDW28001

    Severe Weather Warning for damaging winds and abnormally high tides for people in the Central West, Lower West, South West, South Coastal, South East Coastal, Great Southern and Central Wheat Belt forecast districts
    Issued at 11:35 am WST on Friday 20 May 2016.

    For people in parts of WA southwest of a line Geraldton to Southern Cross to Norseman to Israelite Bay. This includes people in, near or between the following towns: Perth metropolitan area, Geraldton, Dalwallinu, Jurien Bay, York, Mandurah, Bunbury, Busselton, Margaret River, Bridgetown, Albany, Katanning, Narrogin, Southern Cross and Esperance.

    Weather Situation
    The first significant cold front of the year is expected to affect southwest WA during Saturday.

    The strong cold front 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 expected to develop about the Southwest Capes late Friday evening, extending to reach Perth to Katanning to Albany by 6:00am Saturday and Jurien Bay to Merredin to Hopetoun by late morning.

    HIGHER THAN NORMAL TIDES may cause FLOODING OF LOW-LYING COASTAL AREAS particularly along the west coast during Saturday morning around the time of high tide.

    DANGEROUS SURF CONDITIONS which could cause some beach erosion are also likely.

    HEAVY RAINFALL will occur with the passage of the front with the heaviest falls expected southwest of a line Perth to Albany. Isolated thunderstorms and small hail are possible southwest of a line Perth to Albany, extending along the south coast to Esperance during Saturday afternoon and evening.

    People in the southwest of WA experience a front as windy as this about 5 times per year.

    Temperatures could be higher than expected due to Joe King's higher than normal methane output today.

    Correction, the game is Saturday night.
    In that case the weather is mostly through by the time the game is being played.

    Who knows - if the whole Richmond team gets hit by lightning, the Dockers could win a game! One in a million - not bad odds really.
