As the rest of WA sweltered through scorching conditions last weekend, those in Albany enjoyed much milder conditions.

While Albany had its hottest day of the summer on Sunday when the mercury at the airport hit 39.2C at 11.44am, it has been much cooler than other parts of the State.

Perth reached 43.3C on Saturday, while on Sunday Katanning residents suffered through 43.4C and Narrogin had a top of 42.5C.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology, Albany’s average temperature this summer has been 0.7 higher than the usual average of 25C.

It is those milder temperatures that have had visitors flocking to Albany.

Rose Gardens Beachside Holiday and Caravan Park manager Bronnie Allen said they were full with people trying to beat the heat.

“We were full all weekend with people from Perth,” she said.
