which is a pity, as it misses much of the hotter part of the 20th century.

44.9 at Clare AWS today, old record of 43.7, with records going back to 93'.

Amazing temperature for 400m asl in this region.

The convention outside at the moment is incredibly high based and low topped yet I can see rain haze under some of the bases. I was looking at similar looking clouds earlier thinking there's no way these will produce precip but there ya go.

Well riding the push-bike home this arvo was about as usual for a 40degC day - hot and not so sweaty, it drys off of you before it can bead and run!

That's not remotely the case. Even 1939 ended up a relatively cool year nationally (the second half of the year was the second-coldest on record): http://www.bom.gov.au/jsp/awap/temp/arch...month&area=nat.

(Extending the 2010 study back to 1910, now that we have a decent quantity of digitised data to do it with, is on my to-do list).

That much is true. In the data set I used for my PhD, which ended in 1996, there was only patchy warming of extreme high maxima, although much clearer warming of high minima and extreme lows of all kinds. Since 1996, extreme highs have taken off - although interestingly, in those parts of the southern inland which have dried off, the decline in frosts has levelled out or even reversed in places.

That Mt Lofty record is incredible. From never being anywhere near a 40 to an easy 40+

Actually, that was Robe Airport. Robe town had only got to 32 as of 3pm (it's a manual site so only reports at 9 and 3).

As far as I know, Robe and Neptune Island were the only SA sites that failed to get to 37 yesterday. There were a few in the 37-40 range (e.g. Cape Borda, Point Avoid).

Thanks for the conversation yesterday teckert and Blair, was interesting.

My garden faired ok, but two new finger lime trees had some new growth completely scorched to brittle. Hopefully the trees pull through as they were not cheap. Enjoying today being relatively cooler.

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