Christmas Day was 39.6C, the fifth hottest Perth Christmas on record. Friday has been yet another scorcher, with at least three more days predicted to get to 40C of beyond. The forecast for Saturday and Sunday is an ugly 41C, and Monday -- New Year's Eve -- is expected to be 39C. There is little relief in sight, with Tuesday also tipped to be 39C. By Wednesday next week the temperatures may drop to 33C. - Perth Now.
