Extreme heatwave

 

January 2019

Extreme heatwaves are forecast to sweep through parts of Australia over the Christmas and New Year period, with some locations set to swelter in the 40s for days on average temperatures up to 12 degrees higher than usual.

It is part of a sustained heatwave affecting parts of South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales.

In the days after Christmas, the mercury will push 46 degrees Celsius at Coober Pedy in South Australia, Mildura in Victoria and Hay in New South Wales.

It will be the first time that Mildura, on the Murray River in Victoria's north-west, has had six consecutive December days above 40C, with the previous record of five days set in 1931. Adelaide has reached 41C on Thursday and Sunday.

Sarah Fitton, an extreme weather meteorologist with the Bureau of Meteorology, said heat had been building up through central parts of Western Australia.

"No cold fronts to flush that hot air away in WA and it will start to increase even further over the south-eastern states," she said.
