THE cool relief that swept over Perth at the weekend will not be enough to stop the city from yet another warmer-than-average month.

Despite a maximum on Saturday of just 23.2 degrees, Perth - with forecast highs of 32 degrees today and 29 degrees tomorrow - will have an average maximum for the month of more than 30 degrees.

The average maximum for March is 29.4 degrees. The warm weather follows the hottest summer on record.

Saturday's maximum was the coolest day since 22.6 degrees was recorded on December 2 and the coolest March day since the mercury touched 18.4 degrees in 2008, according to Bureau of Meteorology statistics.

However, cooler weather is on the way to start April, with maximums in the mid-20s or lower for the first five days.

Perth's March rainfall will be double the March average of 19.4mm, thanks entirely to the 40.4mm dumped during last week's storm.

This year's monthly rainfall makes it the wettest March in Perth since 2005.

Even the CRU of the East Anglia University said that the manipulated temperature records from Australia were a shambles. This has been referred to as Australia-gate. Researchers have found the BOM and CSIRO have have adjusted the temperatures, left out certain time periods to make it appear that today there are unprecedented levels.
