Perth woke up to a Smoke On The Water vista of the city again on Friday morning as the haze from prescribed burns hung around.

A smoke alert remains for the metro area, from the Hills down to Mandurah.

The haze is expected to clear by this arvo, but the Parks and Wildlife Service said it may return next week when more burn-offs are planned.

Residents are advised to shut doors, windows and turn off air-conditioners if the smoke is particularly thick and those with asthma and pre-existing respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses are advised to follow their treatment plan.

Meanwhile, it was a brisk morning, a world away from Thursday’s shorts-and-thongs temperatures.

Early starters at Perth Airport would’ve felt the full 1.5C experience at 6.30am, and for the rest of us, it was a much balmier 5.9C.

The forecast for the rest of Friday is expected to hit a very respectable 24C before it dips slightly to 22C on both Saturday and Sunday.

Today, there will be some relief with blue skies and 24C forecast for Perth.

And, just to celebrate the easing of some restrictions on Monday, rain is forecast.
