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.

SES responds as dangerous weather hits Lancelin to Esperance

Forty FESA’s State Emergency Service (SES) have answered 18 calls for help in the metropolitan area and one call in Mandurah since the first front moved through earlier this evening.

These calls have involved minor roof damage and leaking roofs across the metropolitan area. The City of Wanneroo has had the most number of jobs, followed by the City of Stirling and City of Perth
