Abrupt end to Perth's Indian Summer
Alex Zadnik, Tuesday April 5, 2011 - 12:49 EST
Perth has just experienced a record breaking run of autumn heat but it's all going to come to an abrupt halt on Thursday.

March was the hottest on record for the city and we have recently broken a record of consecutive days above 30 degrees. Tuesday 5th April is expected to be the 16th consecutive day above 30 degrees, smashing the previous autumn record of 12 set in 1998.

Wednesday will be the last day of warmth for some time, with a strengthening cold front bringing an increase in cloud and wind as it approaches late in the day. Brisk southwest winds will sweep through Perth on Thursday morning with the front, bringing showers and the coldest conditions in around 4-5 months.

Rainfall totals will probably only reach 1-5mm across the city on Thursday but could exceed 10mm through coastal suburbs. Despite the small rainfall totals, the showers will be welcome, given there has been nothing in the official gauge since the 1st February.

Perth will struggle to reach the low 20's on Thursday, so it looks like being the coldest days since last spring. The wintry chill will come as quite a shock to the system, as there hasn't been a maximum below 25 degrees since January.
