More rain, cooler temps ahead

Cooler days have finally arrived in Perth, with temperatures set to stay in the 20s for the foreseeable future.

Perth recorded 0.4mm of rain overnight, while Jandakot received 2.2mm and further south Mandurah had 5.4mm.

The Bureau of Meteorology has forecast a maximum of 23C and more isolated showers for Perth today.

Tomorrow's forecast is nearly identical.

Showers are expected to clear mid-week but maximum temperatures should hover around 27C until Sunday.

"It does look like we've had a bit of a change of season," a Bureau spokesman said. "We're going to get another front coming through and bringing some shower activity overnight."

In regional WA, the small town of Leinster in the northern Goldfields had 18.4mm overnight and Walpole in the south of the state had 3.4mm.

The rain reached also the Wheatbelt, but only just, with Newdegate receiving 0.2mm.

More showers are forecast for the central and southern Wheatbelt today.

Late showers and a maximum of 24C are expected in Geraldton.

There is little relief in sight for the north of the state, however, with Port Hedland set for a top of 35C and Kununurra expecting 38C and possible storms.
