The more this heat goes on the more I'm lovin it.
Just a pity a few dont have what it takes to handle it.
Turn up the wick I say.
Been a good year for turkey shooting, must be the weather.
Time to etch another stamp into the side of mahlappy me thinks.
Two more daysof this and then relief, looks like it's going
to be a dry argument

31.0C on my PWS, low so far 30.6C. 33.6C at 1:30am in Mildura shocked

NSW Outback has some truly epic readings, including 36.9C at White Cliffs, 36.8C at Tibooburra, 36.6C at Fowlers Gap. Pure 100% legendary

Today will be an epic day.


You poor fellas, I live in the outer the South-West suburbs of Melbourne. Was a bloody hot night for us too, low of 27.3C. Was 37C yesterday in my neck of the woods and just touched 35.7C today. Temps should cool down around Melbourne now that the southery is through.

Sorry I have to disagree Galaxyman, I think we have had a pretty decent Summer in Melbourne, not to hot but warm enough and plenty of Sunshine. Statistics alone are not enough to define what it's been like in Melbourne this Summer, also the outer burbs where I live are always a tad warmer too.

Tarcoola 48.2C at 338pm.

Pallamana (near Murray Bridge)surprisingly topped out at only 32C. Been in a SSW airstream all day which snuck behind the eastern side of the ranges.

Recorded a max of 37.5C yesterday at home under the fig tree (my un-official weather station). Temperature probably affected by transpiration from a heavy leaf canopy as well as the fluttering of the wings of the rainbow lorikeets who are currently helping themselves to the ripening figs smile

Loxton's at 46.5C and only 0.6 off their record.
Tarcoola and Woomera have broken their February records which is impressive.

City has somehow now managed to get up to 41C.

temps here made an early high then steadily declined to
hover around 30ish, really nice outside now, got the
webber cranking, while it's going to technically be cooler
tomorrow the difference is not going to be huge but
the next 2 days are a downhill slide until we fall over
the cliff into sunday.

Yeah I agree Weather_Viewer! Sorry Galaxyman but I am sick, sick, sick of hot, dry weather as it brings the bushfire risk in my corner of Melbourne - today's heat was too much for me, all the more because of the TFB we have in place!! mad

Would gladly trade it for either a lively cold outbreak with hailshowers and alpine snow, or "perfect summer weather" (sunny with temps in the mid-20s to low-30s), or a monsoonal system/ex-tropical cyclone/low pressure trough/cold front/etc with heavy rainfall and an outbreak of severe thunderstorms. Heatwaves are not welcome thank you, and I'm sure many other Victorian Weatherzoners will agree. frown

Very impressive for Yunta considering they are 300m ASL. No surprises with Tarcoola winning the state today with 48.2C. Bloody impressive. Port Aug gave it a shake though 47.2C not bad at all. Keen to see Kyancutta's Max at 9am tomorrow given 46C at 3pm, prob be a 47C as well out there.

Very strange distribution of heat today, northern plains struggled, Roseworthy normally dominates but struggled all day, Edinburgh similar. City struggled but managed 41C still...perhaps a bit of sheltering from the S/SSE flow from ranges and the WSW flow was quite weak through there, with most of it pushing more strongly into the northern plains and gulf areas into YP and E EP...with a curl around cross the Edinburgh/Roseworthy area. Yet Snowtown boils with 45.4C not much further N/NW. Very strangely aligned trough boundary that's for sure.

And now, with the seabreeze almost stopped dead, the air has begun a late cook again and airport surged to a 39.2C max at 5:50pm, and increasing dewpoint with it as the shallow seabreeze air cooks good and proper. Was 38/22 not long ago, some of most humid air I can remember feeling in Adelaide. Almost a small slice of Darwin.

Be a very humid evening unless gully wind can mix down a bit and push some drier air down from above the inversion.

TS cool
