A severe weather warning for Perth and surrounding areas has been cancelled, but not before a cold front gave the city a thorough soaking.

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

Weather bureau duty forecaster Mark Paull said the worst of the weather had passed.

“The showers should ease this afternoon,” he said.

A DFES spokesman said the SES had received around 20 call-outs overnight, mainly in the southern suburbs.

“The cause is mainly backed up gutters, where water has pooled and in some cased entered the property,” he said.

“In the worst case scenario it can bring the ceiling down.”

The bureau will continue to monitor the conditions throughout the day.
