JUST five days after a hailstorm and a maximum of 15.9C, the mercury has almost reached 30C as Perth has its warmest start to spring in 18 years.The temperature reached 29.2C at 12.45pm this afternoon, which is 9C above the September average.
Perth has not experienced warm weather like this in early September since 1994 when also on September 9 the mercury reached 29.5C.
However, the onset of a sea breeze quickly cooled the temperature back to 25C.
The unusually warm early September weather comes after a string of very cool days in Perth this week.
I'm not looking forward to summer at all!
