From the Weather Isn’t Climate department.
Damn you, global warming:
Perth is on track to have the coldest month on record.
This morning the temperature dipped to 0.4 degrees at 6.24am – and at 8am, it was still only three degrees.
That is the coldest day since July 5, 2010 when 0.3 degrees was recorded in the city.
Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Matt Boterhoven told WAtoday.com.au that today’s minimum took this month’s tally of cold mornings to 15.
The bureau counts temperatures of less than five degrees as cold mornings.
Mr Boterhoven said the record for cold mornings was 16 in a month, which was reached in July 2010, 2001 and 1998.
He said with forecasts predicting a minimum of two degrees for tomorrow and four degrees on Friday, there was a good chance that record would be beaten.
The days ahead for Perth: Thursday: Partly cloudy. Min 2, max 18. Friday: Partly cloudy. Min 4, max 19. Saturday: Mostly sunny. Min 5, max 20. Sunday: Mostly sunny. Min 5, max 21. (source)
