The old White City club was in the inner southern suburbs, Sydney tends to be more humid than Melbourne
If that's the case parramatta is looking at 41 on tuesday

Re: Australian heat wave.

Reminds me of an article I read in the Rolling Stone last year discussing Australia's susceptibility to climate change:

Climate change is not the issue here for Australia naturally has very hot summers.

Where climate change is having an impact is in winter where the winters have generally become drier and the night time temps have been higher than previously.

But even so that is an interesting article.

Sure but we are talking about a massive heatwave across the entire continent. 40 degrees in Tasmania? You think that's normal?

That's because of La Niña. The overall trend is hotter and drier.

Re: Australian heat wave.

In 30 years AO will be ice skating rinks with ice surface tennis courts and movement on ice skates will be essential.

What? The fact that we already had hot summers make it an even bigger issue. What we know about climate change is that there is no formula. We just don't know how things are going to change and when.

Yes it is unusual for Tasmania to experience a 40oC day or over 100f but for mainland Australia 40oC is normal for summer, central Australia is well known for its long hot summers as stated in the famous poem a Sun-burnt Country.

Part of the reason why the Australian Open is held in January and not February is due to Feb historically being the hottest month.

The models are pretty clear and as been evident for many years the winters are more mild with higher night-time temps.

The broader picture is for the tropical weather of Queensland to slowly drift south which in turn is predicted to make the Victorian climate drier as it becomes more like that of New South Wales.

Interestingly over time like over 100 year Australia could potentially become wetter as the north has longer monsoon seasons.

The current heatwave has been caused in part by a later than usual start to the wet season across the country north.

Re: Australian heat wave.

It's hot this year because El Nino is returning
Well it hasnt returned yet but is in a "normal" state after 2 La Nina years and when it becomes El Nino again Sydney and the other places will experience extremely hot temperatures
The reason for Australia's Drought/Flood Periods is because of this
Meanwhile in Peru, last year there was a huge drought due to lower water temperatures meaning less precipitation but in a few years there will be floods
It's just the opposite of Australia
