Glorious 42C after midnight
That would be at Marree I think. Maximum there was 48.0C. Oodnadatta scored 47.9C. Real Death Valley stuff.

For tomorrow (Tuesday) Tarcoola is forecast to reach 48C and Oak Valley 49C. Numerous other spots on 47C. So there's a real chance at reaching 120F=48.9C.

Will anyone reach the magic 50C?

At 12:00 noon Tarcoola have already equalled yesterday's maximum of 45.4C. Yesterday at the same time they were only 39.5C. How high will they go?

Seems to have been in 1998.

At 1300h Tarcoola now up to 47C.

Climbing impressively but still a long way to go.

On the plus side, maximums there occur late in the day--usually around 1800h--so lots of potential heating still to come.

On the negative side, the change seems to have reached Ceduna 180km to the southwest at 1130h--unless that's just a sea breeze.

Shame nobody got to 50C. So very hard to reach in Australia, all the stars need to align just right. Still, all-time record highs are nothing to sneeze at.

BOM forecasting 49C for Tarcoola on Wednesday. Seems optimistic to me: satellite images are showing some cloud building in from the southwest that could moderate temperatures slightly. Personally I think the heat will focus a little more to the east around Marree and Moomba. 50C seems very unlikely at this point.

Sydney has been more humid than usual in this summer. 34C right now with dewpoint around 21C. Pretty strange, because when it gets that hot, the dewpoints usually decrease. Yikes.

We're expected to hit 43C this Friday.
