ANOTHER winter blast is heading to Perth with a 100 per cent chance of rain and high winds peaking between 3am and 6am tomorrow.
“The front is likely to cause widespread damaging winds to 100km/h that could result in damage to homes and property,” the Bureau of Meteorology forecast this morning.
Overnight on Friday and through Saturday, another strong front dumped about 50mm of rain and had wind gusts of up to 60 knots (111km/h), but caused only isolated incidents of severe damage in Perth.
The wild weather tempted surfers and sightseers to Cottesloe Beach, tore a roof from a home in North Fremantle, and broke several yachts’ moorings in the Swan River.
Ocean Reef photographer Wiaan Walker spotted a number of boarders braving the swell at Ocean Reef Marina on Saturday.
“The waves were wild about 6-7ft; these guys enjoyed every bit of the swell,” he said.
Mr Walker said there were “wild rough seas, like something off a movie” just off the coast where boats launch out of and he watched water hitting up the rocks between the launch bays and the ocean.”
The Bureau forecasts higher than normal tides causing coastal flooding and dangerous surf conditions tomorrow morning.
The Department of Fire and Emergency Services said outdoor objects should be stored or tied down, emergency kits prepared, pets made safe, cars covered and boats secured.
Significant damage can be reported to the SES on 13 25 00.
