This Weather Is Bizarre!!

Tuesday 14th January, 2014

The weather is B-I-Z-A-R-R-E!!!  It is so H-O-T even the wildlife are coming into people's backyards looking for water so that they can cool down too.

They have now upped the forecast and we are going to get temperatures of 44C - 46C (111F- 115F).  We've got another 3 days of this.......ugh!!!  If Thursday's temperature of 46C+ becomes a reality it will be our hottest day since 12th January, 1939.  Today we got to 45.1C  just after 2.00pm.

Looking at the sky it looks like a thunderstorm is brewing....there are reports of lightning strikes.  With the lightning also comes the risk of bushfires.

We've just had a thunderstorm pass overhead, lots of lightning and thunder and a few spots of rain.  There are fires burning in several parts of the state caused by the lightning. At least we have cooler temperatures for the time being.....the temp has dropped to 36C.

  1. Your photos are fabulous! I love seeing the wildlife, although I don't like seeing them hurt or suffering. I don't imagine this heat and the fires are making it easy for them to cope. Keep the water containers in the yard full of water for the animals and birds. Be safe. I hope your day is a good one. Hugs, Edna B.
