Snowtown and Port Lincoln both have data from 1939, too.

mount lofty 39.9. will surely hit 40.

Today really is the 'perfect storm' for extreme heat. Very delayed monsoon, years of drought, lack of seabeezes, heat building through the interior for months and months with little in the way of weather systems to clear it out and impeccable timing of the change to maximise heat today.

And to think the hottest of the air is still being advected in. This might very well be the hottest day any of us will experience in our lifetimes in this state. A day for the record books that's for sure.

Haha, yeah. I mean, I sure hope you're right, but the way trends are going for frequency of record breaking i'd not put money on it..

Walked from North Tce to Rundle st along Frome. On North Tce I wet my hair at a water fountain, it was dry halfway to Rundle st.

Many of these records date back to 1939 so not entirely accurate statement.

46.0 as of 1.38pm at west terrace. 0.1 off the record.

And yeah I say we may never see these temps again in our lifetimes due to the rarity of the ingredients lining up for such heat to occur. Doesn't happen very often. But could always go hotter next year or take another 100 years to happen, never know. That's the beauty of weather.

I just went for a walk, the wind makes it feel like you are standing in front of a hand dryer.

What is not accurate about it? You can only break the records you have, I get that, but from 2000 to 2014 the number of observed Australian hot records is over 12 times greater than the number of observed cold records (from here, might be a bogus source but seemed ok at quick glance https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/2015GL065793#grl53430-sec-0005-title ). So hence my statement that I wouldn't be betting on not this record again in my lifetime. Or did you mean the statement I was quoting originally?

Roseworthy hit 48.1 @ 2.13. So most of the northern Adelaide Plains have sat within 2 degrees of 50 today at some point, truly remarkable.
