Christmas is going to be hot. #Perth weather: 34C forecast for Christmas Day

CHRISTMAS is going to be a bright, bright, sunshiny day.

Despite Perth feeling more like winter the last couple of days, you can rest assured that Chrissy Day will have clear skies, with a minimum of 19C and maximum of 34C forecast.

The two day summer storm broke Perth’s average rainfall record by 4.8mm.

It’s the first time since 2011 that Perth has exceeded the average yearly rainfall of 844mm.

Perth, which usually only receives an average of 13.1mm in December, was drenched by 24.4mm of rain from 9am on Sunday till 6pm Monday and temperatures dipped as low as 12.4C.

In the Perth hills, Bickley was bucketed by 46.4mm of rain, making it the wettest area in the State. Thanks to the downpour, December rainfall peaked at 34.4mm.

But the Bureau of Meteorology said summer “would be back to normal before long”.

A bureau duty forecaster said the wintery weather was certainly unusual for December and was caused by a system moving further south than usual.

“It’s a type of system that we often see during the winter, with a deep low and cold front pushing up toward the South West land decision,” he said.

“The systems do happen year round, but this time of year they tend to be well to the south over the Southern Ocean and Indian Ocean and in this case it just happened to move a bit further.”

He said once the cold air mass moved temperatures would rebound quickly.

“We could have a shower or two early Tuesday but it will be confined to the coastal suburbs by the morning and then it will be a mostly sunny afternoon, reaching 25C,” the duty forecaster said.

By mid-week we are looking at temperatures close to 30C, and by Thursday a high of 33C.

Christmas Eve is forecast to be a sunny 31C with east to south easterly winds between 20 to 30km/h.

The duty forecaster said Christmas Day was shaping up to be fairly consistent with previous years.

“We could end up a few degrees from 34C in either direction depending on when the sea breeze comes in, but there doesn’t seem to be too much variability in the forecast, there should generally be clear skies,” he said.

It’s ours! Australia reclaims the urn. The Ashes 2017-18: Australia reclaim the Ashes at the WACA

AUSTRALIA reclaimed the Ashes on a misbehaving WACA wicket, crushing England by an innings and 41 runs on day five of the third Test.

Steve Smith’s men required a single session on Monday to roll the tourists for 218. England reluctantly resumed on 4-132, clinging to hope that wet weather could keep the five-Test series alive.

Overnight rain seeped through the covers and soaked an area of the pitch, threatening to ruin the hosts’ hopes of taking an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series.

The start of Monday’s play was delayed by three hours, during which ground staff worked on the wet spot with blower vacuums while captains Smith and Joe Root were in near-constant dialogue with umpires.

Root appeared unhappy to hear play would start at 1pm local time.

The skipper’s sense of unease was amplified by Josh Hazlewood’s first delivery of the day, a shooter that straightened and clean bowled Jonny Bairstow…
