Oh yeah, and Australia had its warmest day on record -- a national average of 40.9°C. Beat the old record by 0.6°C, which was set in 2013.
For nonmetricians, that's 105.6°F and an old record of 104.5°F.
Forecasters say it may be broken today or tomorrow.
"Extreme heat is the number one weather-related killer in Australia."
+drought +wildfires. Good think global warming is a hoax.
