Warm and sunny start for summer in Perth

Sam Brown, Sunday December 1, 2013 - 19:23 EDT

After a mild start to summer today for Perth, the following six days should reach at least 26 degrees, with a scorcher set for Friday at 34 degrees.

A ridge of high pressure will maintain sunny conditions until Thursday, although winds will be gusty at times.

A low pressure system will then move over the southwest of the state on Friday bringing a few clouds and the possibility of a brief thunderstorm. However, a very hot air mass is expected to bring the temperature up to 34 degrees.

Looking into the weekend, a few light showers may develop on Saturday although temperatures are still expected to remain in the high twenties. On Sunday, conditions should ease once again as a ridge begins to build and temperatures potentially reaching into the high twenties.
