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.
