    Perth going for 28c tomorrow. If that is reached it'll be a new high temperature record for August

    It's done it. 28.8C at Metro and 29.1C at the Airport. Small chance that it goes a bit higher. Impressive record.

    30.0C in the end with a WSW now in at the metro. That's a big record, even for the older airport site.

    Likely wettest period of the 'winter' coming up for many areas after the filth of today, so some consolation.

    Perth (Mt Lawley station) hit a diurnal max of 29.2C today.

    Knocked the all-time ('98) August record out-of-the-ballpark by +2C.
    A +10C max anom.
    FMD!

    that's confusing, BoM are showing 30.0 as the (Mt Lawley) maximum

    That BOM tweet was made as it was still rising (time stamp is EST I think)

    I think the 30.0 is right. It was up near there for a little while, not a flukey false reading

    Working in sun on hill near Cape Leeuwin yesterday, one of my guys just come back from six weeks in Kimberley. Said he felt hotter yesterday.

    We've had a seemingly endless run of glorious calm, sunny weather, three to five days of good surf & all days offshore a week during July & August this 'winter'. Cool nights making the heathen masses think it is a 'cold winter'. Best weather of the year, apart from the small fact we really need the rain.

    Sitting just under 800mm accumulated thanks to the damp June, but really need to get some more water stored in the soil & vegetation before the windy curse of the spring - summer months arrive.

    Is anyone able to get a read on what the weather might be like in the Stirling Ranges next weekend (14th/15th)? I'm looking at doing the ridge walk and would prefer to avoid testing conditions as it's going to be my first time.

    From what I can see there's a band of moisture somewhere in the mix for that weekend, but it doesn't look like it's going to be particularly windy or wet.

    EC showing 35 knots (850mb) on the Friday (12th), with more weather inbound.

    Looks very Zonal with a possible front/trough system due through on the Sunday.
    Not looking great IMO.

    Looks to be sliding past a bit now? 20-30 knot winds on the Saturday with lighter winds on the Sunday, and very little moisture across the weekend?
