Record Breaking Perth Heatwave

Jump to last reply

Ugh. Perth summers make me seriously miss my home state of Colorado where it's currently a refreshing -2C.

Happy Australia Day ya'll. We'll be spending ours in front of the air conditioner, watching movies, praying that we don't have a power outage.

The silver lining? Limes are down from $30+ a kilo to $9.98, so I can afford to make lots of ice cold margaritas!

"Perth has begun what is expected to be a record-breaking heatwave this week, while Western Australia's northwest prepares for a potential cyclone and thunderstorms.

The Fire and Emergency Services Authority (FESA) is urging people to ensure they are ready for all types of weather this week.

Perth residents are expected to experience the city's hottest consecutive number of days of high temperatures since 1965, with the mercury forecast to hover around 40 degrees for the next seven days.

That includes Australia Day, which is expected to be 40 degrees.

Bureau of Meteorology manager of weather services Grahame Reader said extremely high temperatures and bad fire weather conditions were expected in the south.

In the north, a low is brewing and is likely to develop into a tropical cyclone mid-week and may affect the Pilbara, he said.

"Flooding is possible in the northwest as well as thunderstorms through most parts," Mr Reader said.

FESA acting chief operations officer Lloyd Bailey said people across the state needed to get ready, have a plan and remain vigilant.

"We want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable time over the Australia Day public holiday, but with bad weather forecast, you need to prepare your bushfire or cyclone survival plan, check for any alerts in your area and be aware of the fire danger ratings," he said.
