AFTER gorgeous weather over the weekend, it was back to reality today for Perth as strong winds and rain lashed the city.

With temperatures of 27 and 24 degrees on Saturday and Sunday, the grey skies set in this morning with 9mm of rain falling and strong wind gusts.

A tree blew down on a house near the Peter Carnley Anglican Community School in Wellard.

Tiles were cracked on the roof, and SES crews were in attendance.

Traffic was slow on the Kwinana Freeway north bound, with water from the river blown onto the road.

There’s more rain on the way, with between 1 and 3mm forecast for tomorrow.

The showers will clear on Wednesday after an early shower and Thursday should be fine.

But conditions will become unsettled again towards the weekend, with a top of 34 on Saturday with the chance of a thunderstorm.
