49+ °C temperatures in Australia

Filed under: climate and weather — ckrao @ 12:32 pm

Below is a list of recorded instances of maximum temperatures of 49 degrees Celsius or more in Australia, based on [1] and [2] from Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology. Out of the 48 occasions, 22 have occurred in this decade including 8 (so far) during this summer alone! I believe all the stations have been recording temperatures for at least 20 years except Port Augusta (which started in 2001).
