How to Measure the Weather in Perth and Western Australia

For those of you who live in Perth you will enjoy a Mediterranean climate with long, hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. It is the sunniest capital city in Australia with clear blue skies for 70% of the year. The warm weather and clean air allows everyone to enjoy a year-round outdoor lifestyle.

It can get really hot in Perth with January being the hottest month with an average temperature of  25°C (76°F). In April this year the hottest temperature recorded in Western Australia reached 40.2 -that’s extremely hot for April.

June and July are the coldest and wettest months going down to a cool 13°C (55°F) and an average of 140mm of rain.

In order for you to maximise your time in the great Western Australian weather why don’t you consider using a Weather station to measure the weather.

What does a Weather Station measure?

A weather station is made up of a few weather reading instruments such as a barometer, thermometer and hygrometer. Each of these different instruments measures different helpful things:

  • A barometer measures atmospheric pressure - this lets you know what kind of changes you can expect in the weather. Is it going to be sunny or rainy?
  • A hygrometer measures humidity in the air. Comfortable and healthy living and working humidity levels are between 35 and 65% - anything higher than that can lead to poor health
  • A thermometer measures the air temperature. Comfortable and healthy living and working temperatures are between 18 and 24 C – so check your heat pump settings in both summer and winter.
