Perth weather: City breaks spring temperature record hitting 34.9C

WA’s capital city is sweltering through an unusual heat spike, with temperatures in Perth on Wednesday hitting 34.9C — breaking the record for highest temperature in September.

That’s despite Tuesday’s top of 25C, Thursday’s forecast top of 29C, and a top of just 19C by next Tuesday.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Luke Huntington said Wednesday would feel more like summer in Perth because a trough that developed rapidly off the coast had brought hot northeasterly winds from inland northern parts of WA.

“The sudden fluctuation in temperature is a fairly common spring set-up for Perth,” Mr Huntington said.

“We typically see one or two warm consecutive days before the temperature drops back again.
