Perth Climate and Weather

Perth has a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters. In summer (November to March) temperatures average between 58F (15C) and 88F (31C), occasionally reaching as high as 105F (41C). Luckily the sea breeze known as the 'Fremantle Doctor' somewhat tempers the heat. Rainfall during this period is low, with an average of only three to four days each month receiving rain. Winter in Perth (June to September) is cool without getting unpleasantly cold, generally staying between 46F (8C) and 68F (20C). This is the wettest time of year, with roughly half the days in each month getting rainfall. Tropical cyclones do hit Perth, however this is very rare.
