IT looks as though the weather is going to play nice for grand final barbecue hosts this weekend – whether you’re of the AFL or NRL variety.

After last weekend’s complete blow out, the Bureau of Meteorology has predicted a 0 per cent chance of rain on Saturday and Sunday.

AFL grand final party hosts can expect a max of 22C with light winds and a little cloud cover on Saturday with bounce down for the Adelaide-Richmond game at 12.30pm WA time.

Hotplate-happy NRL fans will be looking at a Sunday that’s slightly hotter and windier with a 25C max and 15-25km/h winds predicted ahead of the Melbourne-North Queensland decider at 4.30pm WA time.

If the football codes aren’t your thing, it could be a good beach day with Sunday’s warmer weather and offshore winds becoming lighter as the day progresses.

The forecast will have WA Beer and Beef Festival organisers breathing a sigh of relief after last week’s downpour forced them to postpone the Elizabeth Quay event for this weekend, beginning tonight.

It is expected to be mostly sunny for the remainder of today with a max of 19C.
