Hot Weather Update

As of 2 pm to-day, the temperature in Launceston reached 35.7°C, which is the highest temperature recorded here since before 1962 (it was hotter in the 1940's and back in 1908, it reached 37°C: weather reports indicate that the ongoing heatwave in Melbourne is of the same order as the 1908 heatwave, at the end of the Federation drought).
