The massive cold front which passed over a large part of WA has left a trail of destruction in parts of Perth and snow flurries in the Great Southern.

More than 9,000 homes and businesses lost power when wind speeds reaching 100 kilometres an hour hit last night.

5,000 were still in the dark this morning.

Fences, roofs, patios and trees were also casualties of the wild weather, as the SES responded to 79 calls for help, mostly for minor roof damage.

In some good news, snow chasers were able to spend some time in the white stuff on Bluff Knoll this morning, where freezing temps delivered the first flurries of the year.


It looks magical but isn't expected to last, forecasters say it should melt away by midday.
