Wet weather in Perth this weekend

Ben Domensino, 2 August 2019

A cold front will bring showers and possibly a storm to Perth on Saturday.

While the day should start out dry, showers are likely to develop in Perth by the afternoon, most likely around lunch time.

Saturday's showers are being caused by a relatively weak cold front, which could also produce a few thunderstorms with its passage.

Perth could pick up about 3-5mm of rain from this system, possibly a bit more in areas that see thunderstorms.

Showers will ease into Saturday evening as the front moves further inland, alhtough there will still be a chance of a few light showers on Sunday as onshore winds persist.

More wet weather and possibly storms are on the cards for Perth on Monday, as another cold front sweeps over Western Australia's Southwest Land Division.
