More wild weather forecast for WA

MORE wild weather is forecast for the southern half of Western Australia as efforts continue to restore power to hospitals and more than 110,000 homes.

Heavy rain and winds of up to 140km/h whipped the state's southwest coast on Sunday, causing unprecedented damage to the electricity network, uprooting trees and ripping a circus tent in Busselton from the ground.

The most severely affected area spanned from the south metropolitan area to Margaret River, with the strongest wind gusts - consistent with a category two cyclone - recorded at Cape Naturaliste.

A Bureau of Meteorology spokeswoman said another strong cold front was expected to hit the region south-west of Bunbury to Corrigin to Israelite Bay later on Monday.

The spokeswoman said a further significant cold front was expected to affect a large part of the south-west land division on Tuesday night.
