    WA Braces For Severe Storms And Freezing Temperatures Next Week

    Severe weather with strong winds, rain and temperatures close to zero is expected to hit Western Australia next week, prompting warnings from officials for people to prepare.

    Western Australia has been warned to brace for strong winds, flash flooding and tornadoes as the cold season arrives next week. The Bureau of Meteorology WA said Perth should expect a series of cold fronts, with some expected to be severe, bringing wind gusts above 90 km/h that can damage trees, with some having wind gusts up over the 125 km/h range, and heavy rainfall that could lead to hail and flash flooding, causing roadblocks and water ingress into buildings.

    Prepare for Temperatures Close to Zero and Strong Winds.


    Around the cold front, by the end of next week, temperatures are expected to drop near zero in several places, with frost around in those areas as well. DFES chief superintendent Peter Sutton urged the public to prepare by removing branches from trees that could fall off, securing items such as trampolines and outdoor furniture, and ensuring they have an emergency kit.

    Last year, a third of storm-related call-outs in the area occurred in May. The SES is available for property damage that requires immediate attention. Still, it is better to stay home with families, so everyone should prepare and ensure their problems are ready to avoid unnecessary call-outs.
