The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe weather warning for the lower west, South West and south coastal districts.

This includes Mandurah, Bunbury, Busselton, Bridgetown, Margaret River and Albany.

A BoM spokesman said an approaching low pressure system and cold front would produce heavy rainfall between Bunbury and Walpole that could intensify from Sunday afternoon until Monday morning.

“Potentially damaging winds to 100km/h could also develop during Sunday morning about the Southwest Capes with the risk extending to coastal areas between Mandurah and Augusta in the afternoon,” he said.

Higher than normal tides may cause flooding of low-lying coastal areas in the Geographe Bay area, including Busselton and Dunsborough, on Sunday morning.

“This is typical weather for this of year, but winds and particularly the rain may cause damage to property and make road conditions hazardous,” the spokesman said.

If your home or property has significant damage, like a badly damaged roof or flooding, call the SES on 132 500.

Perth, by comparison, seems set for a day of showers increasing into the evening with a maximum temperature of 20 degrees.
