Mandurah was transformed into a winter wonderland on Monday morning after a hailstorm pelted the area with icy chunks — some bigger than a 50-cent piece.
Extraordinary photos of the downpour show backyards, trampolines and roads blanketed in white.
It came after a wet and wild night for Perth which saw 71.2mm of rain in the 24 hours to 9am cause widespread flooding across the city.
While the rest of Perth continued to mop up, locals in Mandurah were reaching for their cameras to capture the spectacular scene.
Images show the hail came in unusual shapes and sizes, with Madora Bay local Ria Grobler commenting on Facebook, “The biggest and weirdest shapes I’ve seen in 56 years!”
Hail was reported in Mandurah, Madora Bay, Meadow Springs, San Remo, Stake Hill and Greenfields just before 10am, some of which appeared to be in the shape of a star.
There is still a risk of hail for Monday afternoon and a very high chance of showers and the chance of a thunderstorm, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.
