While we are shivering, record temperatures are being recorded in Australia. For example, it was 50.7 degrees in Onslow – in the west of the country – around 2.30 pm on Thursday.
The 50-degree cape has only been rounded three times since the measurements began in the 1960s. It was also completed in other parts of the country later Thursday.
The record temperature of 50.7 degrees was already reached on January 2, 1960, according to the national weather bureau.
It has been very hot in Australia for the past few days. This has created a severe storm, Tiffany, with which huge rain is expected in the coming days.
