Going by B.O.M. there is a double weather front approaching the City,

WA storm cuts power, hits homes and washes yachts ashore as big cold front looms near Perth....

Loose yachts wash up against a concrete barrier at the Bunbury Yacht Club, while two people brace against the spray of water.

Loose yachts were tossed against a concrete barrier at the Bunbury Yacht Club.

We hope that all Caravanners on the way North have found safe shelter, wouldn't†like to be out in it today, or any time in the next week........

Get the umbrellas ready Perth is set for a weekend of wet weather.

Sat 9th June....

A complex storm front on Saturday night and into Sunday will drench the state with up to 50 millimetres of rainfall, possible thunderstorms and gusty winds reaching 90 kilometres per hour.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster James Ashley said the storm front would cause Perth to hit the halfway mark for the average June rainfall of 173 millimetres in just two days.

"We're going to have a pretty rainy period Saturday night until about lunchtime on Sunday," he said.

"About 1:00pm, the wet weather will pass and it will clear up. But between 7:00 tonight and 1:00 tomorrow afternoon, the Perth area is likely to see falls of 20 to 50 millimetres or more with the passage of that system.

"I'd expect coastal parts of the metropolitan area will see winds of up to 80km an hour easing as they get further inland."

When it's 7.2 degrees & feels like 2.2 degrees - does that sound like a liveable climate? Only the Great Southern Ocean separates Antarctica from Warrnambool!! You can carry only a limited amount of warm clothing in the van.
I hope our next two grandchildren (twins) hurry up & make an entry so we can head north to "God's Own Country".

Frost blankets central and eastern Australia....

Parts of Queensland experienced their lowest temperature in more than a decade on Tuesday morning as frost blanketed central and eastern Australia.

A combination of clear skies, light winds and a lingering mass of cold air caused temperatures to plummet across the eastern half of Australia during Monday night.

By the early hours of Tuesday, some places were shivering through their coldest morning in years.

In Queensland, Townsville dipped to 6.3 degrees shortly before 7am, making this its coldest start in 10 years. Further south, 3.5 degrees at Ayr was its lowest temperature since 2004.

Ice was also covering the Red Centre as the sun rose this morning, with Alice Springs hitting minus 3.7 degrees for the first time in two years. Across the border in SA, Moomba's minus 0.3 degrees was its first morning below zero in seven years. In western NSW, Tibooburra had its coldest morning in six years after hitting 1.4 degrees.

Melbourne and Canberra tied for the coldest capital city in Australia this morning, both dipping to three degrees. For Melbourne, this was the coldest morning since last winter.

Almost feels like Summer here in Perth,† 10 deg at 8.30 am wst, but showers forecast today with a top of 19 deg

Brrrr... negative 3 degrees this morning - at least that is what Weatherzone said for Wangaratta. Here in Bright/Porpunkah, I am sure it was closer to -5 when we peeked out of the curtain at 7.45 am.

Mt Hotham, Bogong and Feathertop are looking spectacular dressed in snow.

I feel sorry for those of you still in South East Queensland. I use to shiver through negatives going to work from Jimboomba†in another world. Now I can just sleep through it until the sun surfaces above the fog and the frost burns off.

Hi K.J.
I guarantee some dill would still be stupid enough to try to drive through the road n the pic you posted! Dunno if those who try such antics think their cars can swim, but I hope they can - I also hope they get charged for the effort of emergency services to come out and rescue them.
Cheers

†G'day Dave,† unfortunately you never seem to hear about these idiots being charged,† more's the pity,

maybe some example of a very large fine might have some effect on these fools ??

Hi guys, have seen some idiots in my† trip on the 'big loop road' too, but was told about an incident at the Birdsville races one year when the 'rain came down'.† Apparently the Police closed the roads in & out at one point.† †The word around got around that any driver who disregarded this advise and managed to bog themselves, it would cost them $1,000 per tyre ( including caravan tyres) to be rescued!††biggrinbiggrinbiggrin† † † † † † † THAT SURE GOT EVERYONE'S ATTENTION!!!† Common sense comes at a price sometimes hey!† † Gwynnie†floating.gif

Complex frontal system about to drench the WA coast, again....

Mon 2/7/18

A cold front, low and trough currently traversing the Indian and Southern oceans will arrive at the WA coast overnight, and this front is soaking up a lot of moisture on its journey. By midnight Tuesday, some parts of the coast between Denham and Albany may have collected well over 50mm in the rain gauge.

The system as a whole is expected to generate powerful winds as it crosses southern WA. Damaging gusts greater than 90km/h are a high risk from very late Sunday all the way through to Thursday.

By Thursday, as the system has moved away to the east, parts of southwestern WA may have picked up 60-90mm of rain. Some of this will fall as heavy rain and showers, possibly leading to flash flooding.

If you happen to be travelling at the moment,†Be sure to keep an eye out for severe weather warnings.

K.J.

Perth, south-west WA brace for damaging winds, rain as severe weather warning issued.....

Wild weather the likes of which is only seen in Western Australia's south-west twice a year is set to hit the state on Wednesday, 25/7,

packing strong gusts which could cause significant damage or destruction to homes and property.

A map showing South West WA with bands of blue and green over the top indicating the chance of rain.

A strong cold front is expected to bring wind gusts up to 100 kilometres per hour across south-west WA from late in the morning through to early Thursday morning, but isolated gusts may exceed 125kph.

Locations which may be affected include Albany, Bunbury, Busselton, Mandurah, Manjimup, Margaret River, Mount Barker, Perth, Harvey, Lancelin, Walpole and Yanchep.

If you're on the road, find shelter NOW !!!

Sunshine here today in Brisbane with a 35 km/h south westerly blowing. Temp is 22 degrees. Not too unpleasant if a body can get out of the wind. Safely ensconced in the van and on the computer, so all's good.
