Testing heat coming to Perth

Rob Sharpe, Sunday December 2, 2012 - 14:18 EDT

Temperatures are rising in Perth each day with mid thirties arriving for the end of the Cricket Test Match at the WACA.

Perth residents have experienced a cool period with five days straight below the November average of 26 degrees. Today the temperature has risen near 30 degrees as a warm air mass begins to push in.

On Monday the mercury will make it into the low thirties before it reaches into the high thirties on Tuesday. If Australia can bat until Tuesday, they will do it in scorching dry heat. Those in the stands will have to make sure they drink plenty of water.

From Wednesday until the next weekend temperatures will fall closer to the December average of 29 degrees with typically dry conditions. However the hills are facing the risk of a few showers or storms between Tuesday and Wednesday evenings as an inland low pressure system nears the region.
