Port Augusta now 48C at 1.15pm, with a full 3-4 hours of heating left it could be in with a real shot of getting to 49.5C+...

Wow even Port Lincoln has cracked 48C, it usually dodges the heatwaves but not this time. As mentioned above, Port Augusta has also reached 48, as has Ceduna. There's also multiple 47's across the state.

Tarcoola and Port Augusta are neck and neck now.

Port Augusta just pulling ahead at 49.1. That 0.9 could be the distance to Andromeda or just a gust of wind away.

Ceduna tripped up by the trough - who knows if it could have.

Tarcoola looked like it was out for the count, but comes back with a late 49.1. Has it got any more puff left, that's the question...

Fascinating to watch this minute to minute. Does highlight just how extreme the weather needs to be to get to 50C.

If you round it to the nearest degree it's 50C!

There are probably plenty of people sweltering who envy us on the NSW north coast where temperatures have seldom left the twenties this month. Just a pity about our humidity. I find dew points in the mid-twenties, as we're experiencing today, quite oppressive, especially when there's not much breeze. Adelaide's dew points today are around 20 lower. I'm not sure which I'd prefer.

Just a thought ...

The only one we know of with standard instruments is a 50.0 at Wilcannia during the 1939 heatwave.

That would make the Wilcannia 50 the NSW record would it not? And not far off Mardie and Ood. When do you expect it to be digitalised?

Not sure, but it's near the top of the priority list when money gets found to start doing historical data again.

Save some dough and stop putting AWS in the desert. Use that to get it done. Before the dumbasses at the ABC, SBS and Fairfax turn a future NSW 50 into a 'hottest evah' meme, coz they looked up climate data data extremes and no one in your illustrious bureau corrects the dumb shiitzzz
