Spring has sprung but the wintry weather isn’t done, with forecasters predicting showers for Perth into next week.

Just over 350mm of rain fell on the metropolitan area this winter – below the 10-year average of 398.1mm.

A massive 51.2mm fell on Saturday alone.

However, there was more rain in May (152.6mm) than in June, July or August.

Tomorrow’s forecast is for a maximum of 22C and possible showers.

Temperatures should rise to 25C on Friday before a cold front brings more showers and colder weather this weekend.

The first day of spring today marks the beginning of the King's Park Festival, a celebration of Perth's own central park and our native flora.

This year the Kings Park Festival features a series of live Santos Sunday concerts, including a performance by singer Christine Anu on Father's Day to officially launch the event.

The festival runs until September 30.
