Southern WA is being warned to prepare for more wild weather as another potentially destructive front approaches the state.

A deep low pressure system may bring damaging winds up to 100km/h to the region tonight and into tomorrow, the Bureau of Meteorology warns.

Thunderstorms were also possible.

A weather alert was issued for the South West, South Coastal and Great Southern regions, including communities in a line from Bunbury to Dwellingup, Hyden, and Hopetoun.

This includes Bunbury, Narrogin, Katanning, Albany, Bridgetown, Margaret River and Busselton.

Wind gusts of 93km/h were recorded at Cape Leeuwin this afternoon.

The weather warning comes less than 24 hours after a cold front brought heavy rain to Perth and South West communities.

Perth has received 32.6mm since 9am yesterday morning, with Jandakot (46.8mm), Dwellingup (39.8mm) and Swanbourne (35.4mm) the heaviest hit.
