Cape Town - The Proteas are looking to make it three Test series wins in a row on Australian soil when the first of three matches gets underway in Perth on Thursday. 

And, the good news for those looking to wake up for a 04:30 start each morning is that the weather looks set to play its part. 

According to Accuweather.com, baking sunshine can be expected at the venue for the first three days of the Test. 

The temperature is expected to get as high at 36 degrees Celsius on Saturday before cooling down on Sunday and Monday. 

The clouds are expected to play more of a role on Monday, the final day of the Test, but there is not expected to be any rain at any stage of the match. 

Win the toss and bat seems the only option for the captains.
