Some extraordinary overnight temps recorded in Victoria and New South Wales, Australia this morning.

Damn was it hot overnight here last night. When I went to bed at 10:30pm it was wasn't too bad, but when I woke up at 1am to take a leak my room was a freakin sauna! Turns out that the overnight minimum temp in Melbourne last night was 28.2C / 83F ....a November record, just after I hit the sack, but rose to 30-31C (high 80's) for the rest of the night. Was 31C / 88F when I left for work at 5am this morning!

Here is Melbourne last night (temp in the second column from left):

Some unreal overnight temps in other places...check out Mildura, Victoria...39C / 102F just after midnight The temp is in the second column from the left.

and some more stunners in western NSW:
"Fowler's Gap"


And this place called White Cliffs in western NSW didnt seem to drop below 35C / 95F for the entire night!!!!!!!!!!!1

this thread can be used to discuss high overnight lows anywhere.

Wow, Melbourne's temps have gone troppo!

Indeed they are impressive overnight lows,
but I wonder if that hot, steamy night in Toronto I fondly remember
had hotter overnight heat indexes than what Australia just experienced?

-was 35+ C (95+ F) until maybe a half hour past sunset
-did not drop to 33 C (93 F) until after 11pm
-cooled to 30 C (86 F) in my backyard by sunrise, (dewpoint 28-29 C perhaps?)
-by 8 am it was 33 C (93 F) again, and continued to slowly heat up

The same thing happened in NYC this August, our low was around 85F (29.4C) for a few days, it was perfect. Our heat index was in the mid-90's (35C) by 9 AM and in the mid-110's (46C) around noon, I loved it.

I know you're loving it, I'm so jealous lol.

That's pretty warm for a "subarctic outpost". And it's not even summer yet.
