Temeratures hereabouts are set to become the highest for a couple of years according to the pundits. They aren’t being ‘exact’ though but suggest we can expect readings in excess of 40ºC this afternoon.
Since yesterday afternoon (at 6:30 p.m.) the car thermometer showed 39ºC I think they might be a little off with their ‘records’.
As you can see from the photo the temperature yesterday (bottom of the dark line) was over 41ºC and even now at 7:45 a.m. the temperature is already above 30ºC!
I appreciate for those of you struggling in the northern hemisphere with temperatures of -15ºC this doesn’t sound like much of a hardship, but I learned very quickly after arriving in Oz that it is *far* easier to warm up than to cool down!
