Nice looking isolated cell, the SW area is starting to go red in the last couple of frames.

Access model for the 23th is suggesting a deep low near the southwest WA corner at the moment. Subject to change of course

Had 15 mm in Marangaroo. It is currently somewhat windy.

I heard ABC news that severe storms had caused damage in Southern Suburbs. The ABC in line with their no advertising policy did not mention the new BMW model the Mini Tornado. =)) =)) =))

From the West Australian

https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/244 ... d-weather/

On Ethelwyn Street in Hilton, residents told of hearing a loud bang before they lost power and strong winds ripped their properties apart.

Several properties are without roofs and fences, trees and snapped power poles are strewn over the road.

Stephen Howarth had the windows of his home smashed in the storm.

"There was an almighty bang and I knew what it was straight away. I couldn't get to the doors and windows to open then in time before they exploded outwards with the pressure," he said.

"We've found things in the garden that were in the house."

Mr Howarth said sheet metal from a nearby factory was blown on to his car, damaging it.

The winds, he said, were so powerful that a boat parked in a neighbour's driveway was blown over and a minibus was "picked up and moved".

He said the street's residents were baffled how homes in neighbouring streets had been untouched.

"It's only on this street, we've all been hit," he said.

Noel Nicholas told of how he bunkered down on the first floor of his property, on the corner of Ethelwyn and Clarke Streets.
The roof of his home has disappeared, leaving only two bedrooms covered.

The windows of the home have also been smashed and fences and the garage destroyed.

"There was an almighty explosion and that's when we knew we were in trouble," he said.

Mr Nicholas was emotional when he told of how the family home was now uninhabitable. He has lived in the property for 45 years.

Neighbours rallied around the street this morning, bringing cups of tea and coffee to those now unable to go inside their homes and helping sweep driveways of debris.

Some stood on balconies surveying the damage while SES volunteers worked to remove trees from the roads.

"I'm just devastated and I just can't believe how this happened so quickly. Just seconds and it all was gone," Mr Nicholas said.

It looks there is a coldie (cold core thunderstorm) approaching from the SW.

Yep, the OConnor tornado was officially confirmed and classified as an F2, packing winds of over 180km/h.

Was a severe weather warning issued for the system? It seems to have done much more damage than previous systems this year with SWW's issued.

Hey Pete, was wondering if you have the link/info for the official confirmation of the (E?)F2 rating, does that also detail the 180km/h?

I did read in a report, "A BoM spokeswoman said a wind engineer had inspected damage in Hilton and concluded the tornado that hit the suburb packed wind speeds well exceeding 125km/h." I reckon the wind speed was higher too, hence exceeding 125km/h. Some of the damage pics/bigger object movements would have had some decent wind force etc.

I talked to the head duty Met today and they said one of the severe weather mets went with the wind engineer to assess the damage and they had gone with that 125-140 km/h range.

No there wasn't a SWW issued. After talking to the head duty Met, they said they had discussed the system a few days in advance but had decided that it looked to be a moderate frontal system. So they weren't expecting the tornado event. Tornado prediction can be tricky, esp. if the decision/mindset has been made for no expectation of them as such.

Todays ACCESS model run for the next 10 days is looking really good for interesting Perth weather.

Yes, looking like a proper mid winter week coming up from Saturday evening. High pressure well to the North and frequent cold fronts crossing us and deep lows running through the Southern Ocean bringing Perth and the SW the risk of gales at times.
