Perth to bake more before calming down in later week

Perth Heatwave

The notorious and erratic weather is creating a muddle amongst the Australians. At one end, Melbourne shivered in one of the coldest nights 21 years hence on Monday, rains poured and swamped streets of south Queensland overnight and then at the same time, Perth has been basking in soaring temperatures.

Most of the Australians are expected to swelter in a blistering heatwave as the temperatures are likely to scale up into the weekend. New Year week for Perth is expected to sizzle at a baking 40°C.

All the more, the Weather Bureau has forecast for a much hotter weather in the coming days and the reason for this sweltering weather can be attributed to a trough that is likely to hit the west coast.

The trough is likely to move inland bringing in sultry weather conditions. Though the mercury was predicted to hit the 39°C but gradually it scaled up recording a high of 40°C at 2.17pm (local timing).

Moreover, the Meteorological Department claims that the mercury is now expected to witness a further high and is expected to settle at a soaring 41°C on Wednesday. However, when the weak frontal system will move in, the temperatures are expected to witness a fall by Thursday as well.

Moreover, a ridge is also expected to develop and once it develops, temperatures will heat up again. The maximum temperatures forecast for Thursday is 27°C, Friday may witness a 24°C and it is predicted to reach to a 26°C on Saturday. Sunday will again be a bit sultry with mercury predicted to climb to 31°C on Sunday.
