Hot today through Saturday, change next week

It is going to be a warm one out there today. Actually warm doesn’t do it justice – how about a record breaking day of heat across much of SE Australia. Check out the temperature anomalies for this afternoon. The anomalies show how much hotter or cooler it is compared to usual for this time of year:

That is an astonishing plume of heat across much of SE Aus. Multiple records likely to fall today. Tomorrow and Saturday sees the heat move towards the north east…so we’ll likely see even more of the heat along the NE coast through tomorrow and Saturday. You can see the change in the the temperature anomaly charts for tomorrow afternoon and Saturday afternoon:

What you can also see in the charts above is the much cooler air moving into SA and Vic. We’ll likely not see that much of the cool air, but what that change will do is bring in eventually is a change in wind direction, with winds turning more onshore across our region through the middle of next week, bringing some cloud, showers and lower temperatures:

Until then take care in the heat, summer is not done yet!
