Perth has largely left the wet weather behind for the weekend after a drenching on Saturday morning.

Another cold morning greeted early risers, though not as shivery as previous days with the mercury recording a low of low of 8.7C at Perth Airport and 10.1C in the city.

There had been just over 3mm of rain up until 9am, with very little falling since.

The cold front moving across Perth and the South West will bring only minimal rain tomorrow and on Monday, before more wet weather passes through on Tuesday.

It means Sunday will be partly cloudy with the chance of morning fog and light winds.

Monday is expected to be even more gloomy as rainfall starts to close in before the showers set in properly on Tuesday.

The warmer mornings, with a minimum of about 9C on Sunday, will again give way to chillier starts of about 7C.


TODAY: 19C, clearing in the afternoon

SUNDAY: 9-18C, partly cloudy

MONDAY: 7-18C, becoming cloudy

TUESDAY: 7-18C, partly cloudy, showers

WEDNESDAY: 9-19C, showers

THURSDAY: 12-18C, showers
