VIC, N TAS, S NSW: Record heat, fires, storms, dust and squalls as cold change crosses southeast

April heat records fell at over a dozen locations across the southeast today before an active cold front sent thermometers plunging. Bushfires flared in hot, squally northwesterlies. Violent storms that developed on a trough ahead of the front brought damaging wind, brief torrential rain and duststorms.

The charts at right tell the temperature story of the day. Overnight minima were 8 to 14° above average over most of SA, western VIC and NSW and SW QLD. Castlemaine VIC posted the highest anomaly, its minimum of 21.5 some 14.2 above the April norm.

Extreme maxima for today were concentrated ahead of the cold change along a line from Melbourne to Alice Springs. Melbourne city's top of 34.5 was 14.3 above normal and the second-highest April maximum since records began in May 1855 (the record is 34.9 on 5/4/1938). Most weather stations around Melbourne have shorter computerised histories and consequently set new records today, sometimes 2 to 3° above their previous April high. Laverton's 35.5 beat a previous record of 34.1 in 62 years of climate history; other significant records were Essendon 35.2 (33.7, 36), Moorabbin 34.9 (32.8, 31), and Scoresby 33.3 (32.8, 38). Elsewhere in VIC, Wonthaggi set a new April heat record for the second day in a row, Ballarat and Kerang set new records and Bendigo and Wangaratta equalled theirs. Wilsons Promontory's top of 32.2 was 3.0° higher than any other April day there in the past 49 years. In northern TAS, Eddystone Point, which broke a 47-year record on 2 April broke it again today with a top of 26.5 while Flinders Island's 31.7 was a 43-year high. Full details are in records below.

In impressive band of thunderstorms developed rapidly after midday ahead of the frontal rainband. Weatherzone, BoM, Kattron.

Thunderstorms developed along a troughline through central VIC and SW NSW soon after midday, giving brief strong winds and torrential rain as they moved east during the afternoon and evening. Deniliquin NSW recorded a wind gust of 113km/h at 3.15pm with 9.4mm falling in 4 minutes. Shepparton VIC recorded 10.8mm in 6 minutes and a top gust of 95km/h at 4.43pm. Shepparton's total storm fall of 18.4mm was six times the total it received in March, but was one of the highest delivered by the storms in their passage through eastern VIC and SE NSW.

At Bendigo, 8 people were taken to hospital suffering scalds and cuts after wind blew down a 30x10m catering tent they were standing in at a Rural Fire Brigades Association event. At Long Gully, in the city's inner north, trees were uprooted and brought down on houses. Downed trees caused blackouts in Bendigo, damaged cars in Bendigo and Castlemaine and injured a woman at Castlemaine. Heavy hail, rain and strong wind caused widespread tree damage in nearby Harcourt. Two trees were blown onto the Goulburn Valley Highway near Kialla West, blocking traffic. Flash flooding caused minor damage to several businesses in the Swan Hill CBD. Raised dust was reported at Mildura for most of the morning and at Ouyen where visibility was down to 800m at 3pm as the main front passed through. At Essendon, the temperature dropped from 33.0 to 18.1 in just over 10 minutes with the arrival of the change.

Bushfires already going in the VIC flared in the hot windy conditions, but rain with the change helped firefighters gain control. They included the blaze in Dunmore State Forest (see report yesterday) which has burnt 1,860ha, a 17ha pine plantation fire east of Linton near Ballarat, and reignition of parts of the Wilsons Promontory fire which further delayed the reopening of the National Park to visitors.

NT: Hot in the south, stormy in the NW

The same airmass that brought record temperatures to the southeast gave the southern NT another hot day. Yuendumu, 250km NW of Alice Springs, recorded a top of 38.5 today -- in 38 years it has reached that temperature three times, all in this April. Most locations in the south of the Territory recorded overnight and daytime temperatures 8 to 10 above average.

Late season thunderstorms brought some moderate totals around Darwin and the northwest coast. Territory Wildlife Park, 30km SSE of Darwin, recorded 53.8mm for the 24 hours to 9am, while afternoon storms dumped 7.4mm on Warruwi in 3 minutes and 32.6mm at Port Keats in 2 hours.
