Same crazy temps out there my lord. Been nicer through the south today, at times driving with the windows down around Victor then air-conditioning on 16deg back through the Southern suburbs where the heat started cranking again.

Looking forward to Sunday and the main SSW change with some deep cool air behind the bars flushing out this hot jail garbage grin

Love reading your daily posts Aussiestormfreak, you have a knack for it, it's a real breathe of fresh air, keep it up smile smile

Hottest day I've ever recorded here on the outskirts of Booborowie... recorded an all-time high of 48.3C. Last time it was this close was Feb 7, 2009 where we recorded 48.0C. We've been recording since 2002.

Thanks Jet Entrance! And I enjoy reading your posts too mate, as well as the South Australian thread in general. Helps me keep tabs on what's happening to the northwest and whether it'll have any impact here in Victoria. smile

Glad we're finally getting a welcome reprieve from the heat! Going to feel a bit muggy for the next couple of days, although the cold front scheduled for Sunday/Monday will feel invigorating, not-to-mention be a shock to the system! eek

That's pretty up there all right.

My garden, as example, sure is showing signs of heat stress here in Adelaide, and that's with 2 inch of rain just a couple of days ago. Cycling home yesterday through Uni SA Campus Magill spotted a koala limp on the ground with a water bowl and sign "please leave alone"... 48+ detrimental conditions.

Well, what can I say. What an epic day that is to be remembered. We officially hit 47.1C at the airport BOM station. This is a different kind of heat. Completely different realm from even 40C. Objects outside become almost too hot to touch. Any metal in the sun is a branding iron and could be used as a very effective torture device. Spiders hang dead from the roof outside with a single strand of silk, something I've never seen before. Birds were gathering under my car, gasping for air. I went to the bottle shop right in the hottest part of the day and the road tarmac was actually melting in places, you could see the tyre tracks left as cars smear the melting asphalt.

Overnight low was 30.6C on my PWS. Mildura didn't drop below 31C. The situation is truly epic. Tomorrow could reach 45C going by current models. Currently 30.0/20.6C. Meanwhile 33.6C down the road in Mildura. Some highly impressive midnight readings currently, including 35.4C in Broken Hill and 36.9C in White Cliffs.

Some pics from today:

dead spiders


It tends to over read in clear weather but you get the idea


heat sometimes has some unpleasantries

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.


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


While I respect your preferences (everyone has their own), I really do not care if you or anyone else doesn't agree with mine. I have my own weather preferences and enjoyment and I will continue to enjoy them regardless, without being made to feel guilty about bushfire risks and what not. Most of the Vic weatherzoners seem to be allergic to anything over 20C and treat any typical summer warmth in Melbourne like its plutonium, even though the ubiquitous cool change is a mere hours away most of the time, along with its days of low 20's and cloud. When compared to other summer climates in the world, the hyperbole on the Vic forums whenever the temp dares climb is plain hilarious, especially as Melbourne has the worst/shortest/coolest/most cool seabreeze/cool change-infested summers on average of any Australian city bar Hobart. What would they do if they lived in the deep South US, the Med, SE Asia, the desert cities in the Middle East and the US Southwest or the Pilbara for instance?

Personally, I'd ban all southerlies from Nov 1 to Mar 31, wintry outbreaks have a time and place - winter.

I will agree with ya on the thunderstorms though. They've sadly been nonexistent in my area this summer. Last event that actually put on a show here was in November.

I hope you keep posting Galaxyman, I'll admit I always enjoy your posts, they always liven things up! Make sure to stay tuned to NSW over the next few days with the extreme heat being pushed across over us. Parts of the Hunter Valley and Sydney have forecasts for 45-47.

Cheers mate! I'll be around when the weather is interesting.

GFS has the 30C 850hpa line just touching the riverland. Currently a muggy 32.3c on my PWS.

Heat I can handle, humidity is the killer poke

One plus of this weather, I don't have to try and trap the mouse living under the pavers, smells like the heat took care of him and the trail of ants leads me to beleive i won't need to clean it up either.

I wish Mt Lofty was more lofty, another 2km or so would suffice.

the end of this is going to be an anticlimax, if any rain is
to be had at all it will be minimal, possible storms north
of pt. augusta and northern ep area, marginally possible
over eastern riverland. a bit of cloud and much cooler is
about as much excitement as there is on offer.
by the end of this next period of uneventful mildness the
sds will be firmly entrenched have anyone who cares well
and truly by the jugular.

I can tell you one thing my free range chook flock is one tough nut of a flock when it comes to surviving extreme heat such as was demonstrated by Mother Nature on Tuesday and Wednesday not only did they survive without dropping like flies but proved to be the toughest breed alive in the harsh bush heat

You are right about that Thunda the SDS will be firmly entrenched and reaching for everyone's jugular after this mind numbing uneventful mild weather coming up
