AUS: Heat and rainfall records tumble across the south

See this special report on the causes of today's extreme weather.

AUS: Widespread record heat continues

For the second day in a row, dozens of April heat records fell or were equalled across a huge area of the continent. In the NT, SA and TAS, records set yesterday were eclipsed today. As yesterday, both minimum and maximum temperatures were up to 15 to 17° above average with the area of extreme anomaly expanding to cover much of SA and extending into western VIC and TAS. All known records are shown below, but some stand-out events were:

  • April high maximum temperature records were set or equalled by stations with substantial periods of record in the NT, SA, NSW, VIC and TAS.
  • The maximum of 36.9 at the Bureau's Adelaide City site is the highest on record at the current Kent Town location (29 years' record), and is 1.1° higher than any April maximum in the 1887 to 1978 period of record at the previous West Terrace site. The minimum of 26.6 is also the highest April minimum for either site.
  • In SA, Woomera, Cleve, Yongala, Kadina and Parafield Airport, all with around half a century of observations, exceeded previous April highs by 1.0 to 1.6°.
  • In NT, Alice Springs Airport, which set a new 64-year high of 39.1 yesterday, reached 39.9 today.
  • In TAS, Eddystone Point, with a 47 year history, eclipsed its previous record of 25.0 by 1.2°.
A duststorm front sweeps across Franklin Harbor on the eastern side of Eyre Peninsula. Donna Lamb

SA: Major duststorms accompany cold change

Relief from the sweltering heat described above came at a cost in SA, with storm force winds causing duststorms that lasted for hours, reduced visibility to a few metres and turned day into night.

The Eyre Peninsula was worst affected, its fragile topsoil only just beginning to recover from the 11 January firestorm that incinerated vegetation across much of the southern peninsula. A wall of dust marked the gust front accompanying a cold change that swept across the peninsula between 3 and 6pm. Highest gusts recorded were 104km/h at Cleve and 102km/h at Wudinna. Port Lincoln police advised motorists to delay travel in the Port Lincoln - Tumby - Cummins triangle after reports that visibility was so low drivers could not see the road beyond their car hoods. The duststorm lasted about two hours at Whyalla, 1.5 at Cowell and one at Port Lincoln.

Duststorms were reported elsewhere in the state, both with the front and in the strong northerly winds preceding it. The Marree observer reported dust with visibility 200m at both the 9am and 3pm observations, the Port Pirie observer described a severe duststorm about 6pm and a duststorm hit Eudunda with the front at 7.30pm reducing visibility to 20m. Wind gusts to 80 to 95km/h were widespread -- see gales and gusts below.

VIC: Fire out of control at Wilsons Prom

A hazard reduction burn in Wilsons Promontory National Park blazed out of control in strong winds overnight and was burning on a 40km perimeter late today after burning through 4,000 ha (40 sq km). Park rangers awoke 550 campers at Tidal River and evacuated them, and 30 others helicoptered from other parts of the park, to a beach at nearby Norman Bay until it was safe for them to drive out. Fires were also reported near Powelltown and Jindivick east of Melbourne.
