greysrigging Posted November 26, 2018 Report Share Posted November 26, 2018 An unprecedented heatwave is occurring in the Northern Queensland coastal districts this week. Yesterday many coastal towns recorded max temps of 43c (110f ), smashing November and all time records. An AWS at Mount Stuart just inland from Townsville reached 45.2c ( 113.4f ), some suburbs of Cairns hit 43.6c ( 110.5f ), Proserpine Airport 44.9c ( 112.8f ). Tropical North Queensland rarely sees extremes of heat or cold, and even towns at altitude on the Atherton Tablelands inland from Cairns hit 40c ( 104f ) yesterday.. Massive bushfires also burning out of control around Bundaberg. Another extreme day forecast today and for the rest of the week. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-11-27/queensland-bushfires-conditions-worsen/10557050 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
