The image depicts today’s temperatures across much of South Australia at 3.30pm, the data compiled from today’s BOM observations.
You wouldn’t want to be a black crow out in the SA sun.
Adelaide’s official record is 46C from January 24 this year, but Enjoy Tasmania spotted a 47.7C recorded at the Kent Town site on the same day, as per this post.
Sydney Airport (NSW) recorded 41.5C today in a meteoric afternoon build-up, but a cool change cut in during the arvo. The wind picked up with the change, bad for the fires.
The year 2019 … ouch.
