Post by Guest on Fri 05 Dec 2014, 10:22 am

yep Sat-6-12-14 the temp is expected to reach 49'c--I reckon the air cons will be working overtime..

good luck to anyone who goes detecting without a aircon strapped to their back

I think Meeka is in for it this weekend as well.

I can't ever remember seeing a forecast for 50+ degrees, but I've been saying for a while now that I reckon it's going to crack 50 degrees this summer, looks like I'm on the money… Does anyone remember a forecast or actual record above 50?

50+ years ago the record was set and we are led to believe today by the scare mongers, we are doomed.
ABC wrote:The highest temperature ever recorded for the month of January was in 1960, when the mercury rose to 50.7 at the small South Australian town of Oodnadatta, on the edge of the Simpson Desert.

That record has been challenged, but not yet broken.

Well done K-Town, what a great effort, you deserve the spoils going out in this heat, it was just too hot up this way to even consider the last 2 days, we headed down to the Newman turn off to catch up with a family member that was passing through and i know the car temp's can be a bit hit n miss but it was showing 49.
