The Australian Bureau of Meteorology forecasts more than 35 degrees for Adelaide, which also marked an all-time high of 40 degrees celsius on Thursday. Authorities are warning people about the high risk of bushfires as a result of the strong winds.
On Tuesday at 4:30 am, the Bureau of Meteorology warned people staying in the Mount Lofty district. Dreary, warm southerly winds might cause the fire in some parts of Australia.
The Bureau of Meteorology further extended their alerts on reaching maximum temperatures nearing 40 degrees celsius, with minimum temperatures in the mid of February to the end of the month.
Locations that are likely to get affected due to the warm-dry winds are Adelaide, Ceduna, Clare, Maitland, Mount Barker, Murray Bridge, Port Lincoln, Port Pirie, Port Augusta, and the Barossa Valley.”
Rob Sharpe, Sky Weather meteorologist, said the previous heatwave was worse than what was ahead of the Black Summer bushfire event in December 2019. “We’re not seeing anything like that, but it is the most significant we’ve seen in a few years.”
