Perth weather: hot in the city, hot in the city

ENJOY today’s cooler weather while it lasts because it appears we’re in for a pair of bitumen cookers as summer begins this weekend.

We’re headed for a cloudy 23C today with southerly 15-20km/h winds switching south westerly and increasing to 20-30km/h in the middle of the day.

The mild-mannered weather is expected to get a little hot headed later in the week though.

Saturday and Sunday could have you dusting off your Billy Idol vinyl because its forecast to be Hot in the City.

The second day of summer is expected to reach 35C, while Sunday could top 36C.

Thursday is expected to be a little cooler at 25C.

An early morning beach swim could be on the cards tomorrow with south easterly winds at 15-25km/h before the breeze is expected to ramp up to a 25-40km/h south westerly.

On Friday, the magic 30C mark is predicted to hit, and with no expectations of onshore westerlies, it could be a ripping day at the beach on the first day of summer.
