PERTH got a soaking today with more than 30mm of rain dumped on some parts of the city.

By 5pm, Perth had recorded 26mm, Bickley in the hills south-east of Perth received a drenching of 33.6mm, while Rottnest got 27.6mm, Swanbourne 27.2mm, and Jandakot 30mm.

The Bureau says showers and thunderstorms would continue around the Perth area into this evening, but the heaviest rain had passed.

A thick band of thunderstorms throughout the day made driving conditions treacherous, but a Road Weather Alert that was issued had been cancelled.

A heavy cluster of thundery showers, clearly visible on the Bureau of Meteorology radar, hit the city around midday and dumped heavy showers for several hours.

The downpour prevented any play in the crucial Sheffield Shield match between WA and Queensland, which was due to start today at the WACA.

The SouthWest, Midwest, Central Wheatbelt and the Great Southern also received showers.

Adventure World closed

The inclement weather also brought an early closure at Adventure World in Bibra Lake.

The company announced on its website: "OK, OK enough's enough weather! We are officially going to close the park for the rest of today due to the proximity of lightning.

"If you are a season pass member of know anyone who was thinking of coming this afternoon, please pass the word on. Tomorrow's weather is looking hot and sticky so we look forward to seeing you all for a refreshing day out from 10am!"
