If you enjoyed the stinking hot Perth weekend, we have good news for you – another one.

The metro area is set to reach a maximum of 35C on both Saturday and Sunday, so if you haven’t got the aircon fixed yet, now is the time!

Perth reached a scorching 37C last Saturday – the hottest day since March – before cooling down slightly to 32C on Sunday.

Perth will get a slight reprieve from the heat, thanks to a weak front approaching from the south coast, for the start of the week, before the temperature ramps up on Friday.

Joey Rawson, Senior Meteorologist at the Bureau of Meteorology in Perth, said the warm weather will stick around overnight, making for some balmy evenings.

A minimum overnight temperature of 21C is predicted for Sunday.

“A west coast trough – very common for this time of year – is bringing warm temperatures from the north and inland,” Bureau of Meteorology Duty Forecaster Jessica Lingard said last Friday.

“We can expect very pleasant weather over Friday, Saturday and Sunday… summer starts in a week so we will see things heating up.”
