Australia: Unsettled spell for Perth, The Ashes likely to be affected

The England cricket team may feel more at home, as conditions turn wet and very windy for the end of the third test.

A deep low pressure system will cause winds will pick up from the southwest through Sunday, gusting above 80km/h by the late-afternoon, around the time rain will commence. 

Rain will continue overnight, tending to become more showery by Monday afternoon as the system gradually clears, with widespread rainfall totals of 15-25mm expected. There is a good chance The Ashes will see some interruptions to play.

Temperatures will also tumble as the system directs a cool maritime airmass across the region, with the mercury struggling to make it into the low-20’s on Sunday and Monday.

Conditions will become dry and increasingly warm through the remainder of the week, with daytime temperatures comfortably reaching the low-30’s by Thursday.
