I’ve been watching the BOM site for Victoria: we have seen some truly incredible temperatures today. In at least two locations we saw the temperature exceed 45.
- Hopetoun – 45c at 2;50pm
- Mildura 45.5 at 3;37pm
Swan Hill saw the temperature reach 44.8c.
In November . And yes, we are still officially in Spring. Here are previous records, this tells you what records got smashed.
If I read it correctly, a 32 year record was just smashed.
