Swan Hill 47.5c . Looks like a Victoria state record for January. Interestingly other places in the Mallee didn't even get close.

Probably a bit far west. Kerang's come in with 47.0 at 3pm but haven't seen a max yet. Wouldn't surprise me if they went even higher.

Kerang max (to 3pm) of 47.4. Might have warmed up further later but we won't know until tomorrow.

I read somewhere that Boort recorded a 48.2c during the Black Friday event in Jan 1939. Doesn't pop up in Records as the data hasn't been digitized yet.

Lightning tracker showing heaps of lightning strikes on the butchers ridge fires. Hope it settles down. Would probably cause a lot of spot fires.

45C atm at Bairnsdale AWS. Maximum, I think, was 45.2C. Moderate NWly. Huge cloud from Buchan fire to the NE.

Never felt 45c in my life.

The gauge is always in shade

Now Victorians think 30s not hot any more.

Bairnsdale got to 45.8c.

Would be interesting to see the plume directions as the southerly pushes through.

We had a 45 second dusty gusty change pass through here around 5.45pm. No storms or rain.

Now circa 31C with light SW'ly, interestingly a weak storm (had two rumbles just now) is trying to establish itself as it passes over.

Commiserations to those who got load shed today, but overall (especially fire-wise) - I reckon Vic got out of this "one day heat event" not too badly.

But will the past 2 days of load shedding convince enough doubters that the investment put into Aus electrical system over the past 7 years has been effective? .....after all we are all told ad nauseum that the climate is going to get hotter. Was our money well spent?
