Heatwave update

January 10th, 2009

So far this month we have averaged 39.3 degrees celcius (103 F) for our daily maximun temperature. That is six degrees above the January average! We have also nearly had a month of temperatures over 30 degrees.

The good news is we are expecting it to drop for a few days next week. The forecast is predicting 31 and 34 on Tuesday and Wednesday. That is still warm, but it is not 44!

If you are interested in weather, the Elders website has some cool surface temperature charts online. These are the charts they use to predict the weather forecasts for the next week or so. The more red the colour, the hotter it will be. You can check them out here.

For the record we are on the left side of the above map at the bottom of the red zone! You can click on the pic to make it bigger.
