    Australia's Hottest Day Ever!

    And, it's not even summer yet.

    At 105 F, Australia Just Had Its Hottest-Ever Day : NPR

    Australia experienced its hottest day ever recorded on Tuesday, according to preliminary results from its national Bureau of Meteorology.

    The average maximum temperature across the country was 105.6 degrees Fahrenheit, topping the previous record of 104.5 degrees, set in January 2013.

    There's good reason to think that this record could be smashed again within the week — Diana Eadie, a meteorologist at Australia's BOM, said that the heat on Wednesday "will only intensify."

    Yep, the heat is extreme. It's hot as hell. Very concerned for the elderly, the vulnerable, animals and others who don't have anyone looking out for them and reasonable shelter.

    Weather watchers have said “it’s almost guaranteed” all-time heat records will be broken in major cities over the coming days as a scorching heatwave marches across the continent.

    We could even see Australia’s hottest single day in history. Today, temperatures could exceed 20C above average in some areas with Melbourne likely to hit almost 40C. To put that into perspective, Melbourne usually only gets as high as the mid-twenties in December.

    The Riverland of South Australia could breach 50C on Thursday. Sydney’s west could see 46C on Saturday while the 43C forecast in Canberra could be the capital’s hottest ever temperature. “A record heatwave is developing across southern Australia. We’re expecting to break temperature records at dozens of locations across South Australia, the ACT, Victoria and New South Wales,” Sky Weather Channel meteorologist Tom Saunders said.

    I read something the other day about people being concerned about race horses. Apparently the races are still going on but probably should not be.

    People should not be going outside at all unless they need to in those conditions, never mind going to the races. The horses should not be exposed to those conditions either.
