One of our warmest winters …

... in our hottest year

Walking in the wind shadow at the foot of the southern Mount Gillen range yesterday my face was getting red, my hair, damp on my forehead; the shirt beneath my backpack was sticking to my skin. And this was a winter’s day! Surely a record for August? But no. That was set only a few years back and I’d already forgotten. On August 22, 2009 it reached 35.2 degrees Celsius at Alice Springs airport. Yesterday it only got to 30.8 degrees. KIERAN FINNANE asks the Bureau of Meteorology about our very warm weather and what, if anything, it means about our climate. Pictured: Seeking the breeze high on the range.
