Maybe we have it wrong with this thread. If we rename it "When will we see 51C in Australia"? Or maybe "Where?"

The Oodnadatta 50.7 and 50.3 in January 1960 were on successive days. (Considering some of the other temperatures in this event - 49.4 at Whyalla is a standout - it was perhaps a bit of a surprise that Marree didn't make 50).

The only other 50+ values in Australia under standard conditions are the 50.5 at Mardie in February 1998 as mentioned earlier, and 50.0 at Wilcannia in January 1939. (The daily data from Wilcannia in 1939 haven't been digitised, so this value doesn't get picked up in some lists but we believe it to be accurate; a 49.7 from Menindee is pretty strong backup).

I think that it won't be long before another 50 is recorded, we've had a few close calls but surely it'll tip over sooner or later, just need the right dry arid conditions for it

Hottest I've ever experienced was 45 a few years ago

I remember it being 47C here on Black Saturday. Incredible how heat like that could be pushed this far south.

Yes - how on earth did Marree not at LEAST get to 50C in that 1960 event with it being 60n lower then Oodnadatta!!?

Without knowing whether there exists observations of the sky I am guessing cloud could be a factor robbing Marree of a 50 or two.

That's generally what happens in our part of the world, but we get robbed of 40 degree temps.
