The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe weather warning for tomorrow in areas of the Great Southern district, expecting damaging gusts up to 100km per hour.

The strong cold front will hit Albany at roughly 11am, after hitting Southwest Capes at 8am and extending through the South West Land Division during the day.

Showers and isolated thunderstorms may bring strong winds and consequently damage to homes and property.

Expect showers and wind gusts in the hours before and after the front has crossed.

The South West of WA experiences a front as windy as this roughly five times per year.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services has advised people that they should stay inside away from windows, unplug electrical appliances and refrain from entering the water in wild weather.

If you experience significant damage to your property contact the SES on 132 500.
