SA and North West Vic Heatwave

Post  samueliza on Fri Nov 13, 2009 3:41 am

Have lived in SA for a couple of years before moving back to Melbourne.
They are really struggling. As are places north of Horsham in NW Vic.
The grain crops have done so well this year (thanks to the rain in October), but the heat this early is surely surprising th locals. Anyone got any data from Adelaide? I know they had a seriously long stretch of 35 degrees + one or two summers ago (but that was summer!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Adelaide have only had 4 days out of 12 under 30 degrees. Their 7 day forecast reads 39, 39, 40, 28, 30, 36, 38. Currently monthly mean is 7 degrees above last November. We (Melbournians, not Northern & Western Victorians) are fortunate that the heat is not pushing as south as it could have.

Oh, and they've had under 20mm of rain in the last 6 weeks!!

Sounds like here with the rainfall part, the temps not quite as extreme but still extreme enough

Melbourne and Surrounding areas have REALLY missed the insane Heat wave that is occurring across MUCH of the Inland SE we are so lucky we keep just missing out.

Much of NW Vic, SA, and West, and inland NSW were in the 40s today for the 3rd or 4th time this week on top of the last 7 days been above 35c and in some places last 6 days have been above 38c. affraid
Insane heat this time of year and many wont see a Major cool down till this time next week with both tomorrow and Wednesday, Thursday been more shockers, and an easy 3 more days of 40-44c heat

Places like Mildura are running Nov means 7c+ above avgere that is huge, and with another week of 10+c maxs ahead, they are surely on track to record the hottest November on record as to is Much of SA, Inland VIC and West and south NSW. Even if last week is cold which I doubt it, but should be in the 20s which will be back to normal and very welcome.

Sadly this comes a few weeks to soon and is Frying the crops in the NW Vic, many will have reduced yields which is sad after what looked the best crop in close to ten years hopefully though many can still pull out a decent one
