Perth climate: WA bushfire season could stretch into autumn amid long dry spell

Western Australia’s hellish bushfire season could continue through autumn, even as the rest of the country squelches through unusually soggy conditions.

The Bureau of Meteorology says the Eastern States are in for a warmer and wetter autumn, spurred on by the waning of a La Nina oscillation in the Pacific Ocean.

But dry conditions will continue in the west. It’s already been a nightmare fire season in WA, with out of control blazes earlier this month destroying 14 homes from Denmark to Shackleton.

The BoM expects large parts of Australia to receive more than the median rainfall from March to May, while temperatures are predicted to be above median for most of the country, with only a small part of the NSW coast to be cooler than usual.
