Severe weather can be expected in Perth,Western Australia as two cold fronts will hit Perth,Western Australia.The Bureau of Meteorology has released a warning for Perth,Western Australia stating:
Severe Weather Warning
Severe Weather Warning
for destructive winds and heavy rain
for people in the Central West, Lower West, South West, South Coastal, South East Coastal, Great Southern and Central Wheat Belt forecast districts
Issued at 11:01 pm WST on Thursday 25 July 2013.
For people in parts of WA southwest of a line from Kalbarri to Southern Cross to Israelite Bay. This includes people in, near or between the following towns: Kalbarri, Northampton, Geraldton, Jurien Bay, Dalwallinu, York, Southern Cross, Narrogin, Katanning, Margaret River, Busselton, Bunbury, Albany, Esperance, Mandurah and the Perth Metropolitan area.
A cold front is expected to approach the west coast during the early hours of Friday morning and move across the South West Land Division during the course of the day. During Friday afternoon a secondary cold front will move across the southwest of the state.
The first front is likely to cause WIDESPREAD DAMAGING WINDS to 100 kilometres per hour that could result in DAMAGE TO HOMES AND PROPERTY. In isolated areas DANGEROUS GUSTS in excess of 125 kilometres per hour could cause SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE OR DESTRUCTION TO HOMES AND PROPERTY. DAMAGING WINDS are likely to develop near the Southwest Capes around midnight, reaching remaining parts of the west coast from Kalbarri to Walpole by about 4am, and extending inland to remaining areas during Friday morning.
The first front is also likely to cause HEAVY RAINFALL that may lead to FLASH FLOODING in the Lower West and South West forecast districts early Friday morning.
The passage of the secondary front is also likely to cause WIDESPREAD DAMAGING WINDS to 100 kilometres per hour that could result in DAMAGE TO HOMES AND PROPERTY southwest of a line Jurien Bay to Bremer Bay on Friday afternoon. DAMAGING WINDS will extend to southwest of a line Dongara to Paynes Find to Israelite Bay by the evening. This system is likely to produce higher sustained winds and more frequent squalls than the first front.
Large swells will accompany the secondary front leading to DANGEROUS SURF CONDITIONS which could cause significant beach erosion along the west coast south of Kalbarri.
People in the south of WA experience a system as windy as this about 5 times per year.
The Department of Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:
If outside find safe shelter away from trees, power lines, storm water drains and streams.
Close your curtains and blinds, and stay inside away from windows.
Unplug electrical appliances and do not use land line telephones if there is lightning.
If there is flooding, create your own sandbags by using pillow cases filled with sand and place them around doorways to protect your home.
If boating, swimming or surfing leave the water.
Do not drive into water of unknown depth and current.
Slow down and turn your headlights on.
Be alert and watch for hazards on the road such as fallen power lines and loose debris.
If it is raining heavily and you can not see, pull over and park with your hazard lights on until the rain clears.
If your home or property has significant damage, like a badly damaged roof or flooding, call the SES on 132 500.
The next warning will be issued by 5:00 am WST Friday.

Clear nights tend to cause a larger temperature drop because more heat is allowed to escape into space than in cloudy nights.This is why desserts tend to be cold at night despite hot afternoons.
The same applies for Perth,Western Australia.In Perth,Western Australia during winter on clear nights the temperature can drop to a cold 1 degrees Celsius but on a cloudy or rainy winter night the temperature might stay above 10 degrees Celsius all night.In Kuala Lumpur on clear nights the temperature can drop to 21 degrees Celsius on very clear nights but stay above 27 degrees Celsius on cloudy nights.
On the morning February 22 2013 the temperature in Kuala Lumpur had dropped to 22 Degrees Celsius due to clear skies.
This night is a clear night in Kuala Lumpur and so the temperature as of 11 PM at Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport was a "cool" 27 degrees Celsius despite the hottest afternoon of the week.
In fact now(11:45 PM) the temperature at the Bukit Rahman Putra(Sungai Buloh) weather station was 26.2 degrees Celsius.Overnight we can expect the temperature to drop further and perhaps below 25 degrees Celsius.
