South West residents can expect perfect weather on Christmas Day, according to a Bureau of Meteorology spokeswoman.

Sunny skies are expected in Bunbury with a forecast maximum of 29C.

An easterly breeze is expected in the morning followed by a sea breeze in the afternoon.

The BoM spokeswoman said conditions would be ideal for the South West.

“That would be pretty much a perfect Christmas Day temperature I think,” she said.

“If we took a poll around the office I think everyone would agree.

“Not too hot but not chilly either.”

The spokeswoman said Collie and Harvey could expect similar temperatures.

“Collie can expect another sunny day at a maximum of 33C,” she said.

“Being inland they won’t get the effect of the sea breeze so that will keep the temperature a little bit warmer.

“In Harvey it is expected to be sunny and 31C.”
