That was was quite sobering to observe - a reasonable rule of thumb for moderate physical activity is to assume a 10bpm increase in heart rate per 10C rise in ambient temp, but at 46C the body struggles to lose excess core heat fast enough to maintain itself at 37C, even with plenty of water intake & perspiration.

Our previous record in the bottom of the Kuitpo valley was 39.5 degrees and we beat that by a solid 3 degrees. What surprises me in all of this is that the "experts" did not predict any of this. Instead, they forecast a"mild December", "no extreme heat" and January was supposed to be "relatively mild", "a few days in the mid-thirties". At the moment, our average for January is 4 degrees above normal and I'm wondering what February holds.

Well yesterday was definitely a blood and marrow boiler for Kalangadoo with many more to come next month thankfully my outdoor weather sensors didn't melt in the heat

At around 17:24pm the temperature on my pws reached at staggering 44.7 degrees outside just .2 of a degree shy of the record previously recorded on my older weather station in 2014 but in stark contrast the heat index on laptop screen as i am looking back at yesterdays readings says it did actually reach 44.9 so pretty much equal with 2014 record

Now its time to sit back,relax and wait for mother nature to cook us alive once again in February

City, Mount Barker, Kingscote, Keith, Roseworthy, Lameroo, Strathalbyn, Mount Gambier, Robe, Cleve, Port Lincoln are over 100 years old.

The maximum temperature average the month gone wasn't a record for Adelaide:

1908 34.18
2001 33.71
1939 33.29
2019 33.05
1906 32.86

There is one day missing a maximum temperature - a below average day (the 8th), which if we took Kent Towns temperature (26.9), would make it 32.85; thus only the 5th highest on record.

The minimum average (18.11) is well down from the top, in 30th spot. Top 6 being:

2001 20.29
1908 20.20
1974 20.05
1981 19.91
1939 & 2006 19.88

So, it therefore ranks 8th, behind:
1908 27.19
2001 27.00
1939 26.58
1890 26.13
1981 26.02
2006 25.90
1906 25.58
2019 25.58 - extending decimal places demotes it below 1906

As for daily maximum records go; just the one record day maximum was broken - it of course being the 24th. The 46.6 surpassed 42.0 set in 1982. The minimum record on that day is still from 1982 - 33.5, which was Adelaide's overall record until 2009.

The Australian Meteorological Association has a public meeting next Tuesday Feb 19 discussing Home Weather Stations. The Bureau's climatologist Darren Ray will also be covering our recent heatwave. This is a great opportunity to discuss with Darren Adelaide's hottest month on record, the floods in Qld and the latest global climate report.
