Cook's record is 48.7 in 1973. Suspect it might have been a bit too far west for the peak of the action this time round (as it was in 1960); Forrest's highest during this event has been 45.3.

Possibly a 50 tomorrow in western NSW with 32C at 850mb and 39C at 850mb around Cobar. I'll be watching Wilcannia for that, but I expect it will "only" reach 49C.

Yea I usually add about 18C to the 850hPa temp in non coastal areas and genuine HOT days, and more like 15C on the cooler days. So real shot at 50C but as you say prob 48-49C but def a broader area of higher temps than SA had at the same elevations. Port Augusta got 48.9C with 30-31C 850's and 37-38C 925 temps so can be done but at the very least, expecting a swath of new records across NSW tomorrow.

TS cool
