It may officially be spring this week, but winter is not going anywhere in Perth.

On Wednesday a cold front, and a very cold air mass, is set to bring rain, hail, snow, and freezing temperatures to parts of WA.

“Wednesday will see an increase in shower activity as a front moves through the south-west,” Duty Forecaster at the Bureau of Meteorology Luke Huntington said.

“Behind the cold front is a very cold air mass, increasing the thunderstorm risk late Wednesday and into Thursday.”

“There’s also the chance of hail in the south-west, and snow at Bluff Knoll.”

A high 8-15 millimetres of rain is set to hit the metro area on Wednesday with a top of 19C.

The cool air mass will also bring record breaking cold temperatures for September with parts of the south-west expected to be below 0C on Friday morning, and Perth at just 4C.

But fear not, the wintry weather is set to clear for the weekend, with a fine 22C and sunny tipped for Father’s Day. Get the BBQ ready!

“Sunday is looking really nice actually, perfect conditions,” Huntington said.
