We're being told to brace for 5 days of heat, today kicking off a number of scorchers. 

It will be the longest run of very hot weather in 5 years with temperatures expected to exceed 35 each day. 

Neil Bennett from the Weather Bureau says it's a low level heat wave, and is encouraging us to check on elderly family members and friends.

It's also important to remember to keep pets hydrated.

On Sunday the mercury is likely to reach 40 degrees, before things start cooling down in Perth from Monday. 

But for our neigbours in WA's north that's just the start of things to come. 

Marble Bar will become the country's hottest town when it hits 46 degrees on Tuesday.

While Paraburdoo is set to swelter through a week of temps in the mid 40s.
