Severe weather warning has been issued for destructive winds in the South West tomorrow.

People in, near or between Walpole, Augusta, Margaret River, Busselton, Bunbury, and Manjimup should be ready for a strong cold front.

The cold front is expected to lie near the south-west capes by sunrise, moving through the SW Land Division during the day to lie near Kalbarri to Israelite Bay by the evening.

The passage of the cold front across the region between 7am and 10am tomorrow morning will produce squally conditions.

Gusts could be in excess of 125km/h and cause significant damage or destruction to homes and property in localised areas.

In the wake of the front a pool of cold unstable air will produce cold and squally conditions with isolated thunderstorms and small hail.

This could bring further damaging winds gusts 90 to 100km/h in localised areas.
