Temperatures to reach above 40C in South Australia


Temperatures are set to surge beyond 40C in parts of South Australia today as their neighbours just over the border to the west battle an unseasonal chill.
The topsy-turvy weather is the result of two different systems passing across Australia’s southern coastline this week.

The South Australian town of Oodnadatta is set to reach 41C today, which will be the hottest temperature of the spring season so far, Weatherzone said.

The town, with a population of 200, became famous after recording the country’s highest temperature in 1960 of 50.7C.

Temperatures won’t be as high in Adelaide, but will still reach around 30C.

The hot weather is the result of northerly winds that are dragging down hot dry air, according to Weatherzone.

And while temperatures are expected to climb in the morning, South Australians are also bracing for a potential storm that could hit the region in the afternoon or on Thursday.

Meanwhile, residents in neighbouring Western Australia are expected to experience temperatures below 20C today, though the mercury has dropped as low as single digits in places already this week.

Thunderstorms are also forecast for the state, with a warning of damaging winds in areas such as Carnegie, Forrest and Rawlinna.

The first of the two weather systems crossing Australia’s south coast is a cold front that passed through southwestern Western Australia from Sunday to Monday, which has now arrived at the South Australian border.

At the same time, in the south-east of the country a low pressure system in the Tasman Sea is funnelling cool winds over the region causing temperatures to stay in the mid to high teens in Tasmania and Southern Victoria.

Warmer weather should appear in those regions later today or tomorrow as it moves across from the west.
