Reporting from Australia

In the last 3 days we have seen tempretures accross most of Australia in the 40+ degree tempretures,in Tasmania we have seen severe fires which have wiped out 100+ homes and burned out over 40,000+ hectares, in South Australia savage fires have bunred accross the peninsular and in NSW over 40+ fires have started, about 3 hours ago a storm in the Riverena aka the middle of Australia brewed and has been thrashing around for about 3 hours and the tempreture outside has been around a good 30+ degrees and its 11:30pm, now there are gale force winds, there is no weather warninggs on the BOM.gov.au website and hasnt been for a while, it apparently was canceled some sevral hours ago even though we have had severe weather in regional NSW, im wondering, is what the weather beaureu's telling us lies when they say about pressure systems? of is there somethign more? or is it all just coinsidence? apparently we are between the laninia and ilnino stage so we are neutral as was said on the weather but personaly i think someone it cooking up a storm, im thinking harp, can anyone tell me if there is data to see if HAARP is active in our region or not? i hope someone out there takes a interest in this.

Yes, been in Moama NSW last couple of days and it has reached low 40s to mid 30s. Watching the news it has freaked me out how most of the coastal and inland areas around the country are experiencing 40+ degrees and some breaking records for hottest day ever!

Here in perth, for every day during christmas week it was 42/43 bar friday - which happened to be 38. Lucky us. haha

Now it's cooled down a bit and there's some breeze at night, but then again we could have heatwaves one minute - thunderstorms and lightning the next.

We're talking Celsius by the way, before you Americans jump the gun a bit hahaha

Well last year we had severe flood in the riverena, phenominal amounths of rain fell accross 3 states and all headed down stream so to speak flooding allot of area like wagga wagga and parts of victoria, it was no where near this hot last year, from what i could gather on the BOM Website, i cant seem to find the averages over the last few years so i have no idea how long it has been since we last had these tempretures.

Every couple of years we get the same sort of weather. Really nothing to get your knickers in a knot over. Next year we will be back to floods.

from what i can read we had a a daily solar exposure of 9.5kw on the 1st 2013 and thats the highest reading i can find and the higest temp which was today was 43.5 degrees but apparetly the last was in 1953, my partner says this is incorects its was only about 3yrs ago but i cant seem to find the data, i guess im interest also in what the highest temps have been and solar exposure, this years and decmeber 2012 seem to very dangerously high, i find that the UV burns my skin allot more than it used to and allot quicker, could this be our sun is heating up more?

40 degree celsius is 104 degrees fahrenheit. You are in the early part of summer?

No need for alarm. It's hot in Australia in early January..not exactly earth shattering.

haha the overcast and humidity doesn't help either. I've noticed it's hotter in the other parts of australia, so we have nothing really to complain about, but it still makes you want to put a bullet through your head when you're in a workshop

We had our 4th hottest day on record here Friday, but considering we're almost in the middle of Summer, it's been very mild up to now.

45 in Echuca, Victoria a day or so ago...it's been hot where I am as well. Very very dry winds, picked up a possum which had been affected by the heat, died on the way to the vet...so bloody hot, water is scarce...other than that it will pass and will be pissing down in no time...

The same happened in Canada, this past summer. I live in Toronto, and there was a 3 day stretch in July where our temperature was on par with Baghdad. What the?!?!!!

It's a global thing. If you want to know how your winter is going to go- look at us now. I'm definitely watching you guys, to see what my summer will be like this year.

Makes you just wanna slap em.

It's bushfire season in Australia. This is normal weather...there's always at least one significant heat wave, one major bushfire, and a whole bunch of people claiming this is the hottest year on record.

I remember back in somewhere around 2001-2003 the place I was living in didn't get below 40degrees for 2weeks straight (hooray for aluminium roofs, zero insulation and no air-con). From memory the unit topped out at 46degrees (hot enough that being in it made you feel physically sick), and at night-time dropped to a balmy 38. Will never forget going into the kitchen and finding that the bread sitting on top of the fridge was warm enough to have just come out of an oven. I also remember a few years before that when I was a teenager jumping off a 1/4 pipe and my rollerblade wheels sinking into the bitumen because it had got so hot it had become soft & pliable (side effect of the entire skatepark being in what amounted to a giant cement/bitumen paved bowl).
