One thought on “Australian summer 1939 was hotter than 2017”

  1. In fact, the summer of 2016/17 is ranked 96/107 for mean temps and 80/107 for max temps. Hot in NSW and parts of Qld/SA but not in the west and north of Aust. Min temps ranked 5th warmest.
    Not exactly exactly an ‘angry summer’. In Jan, 1896, Bourke had 22 consecutive 40C days so that year could well have been warmer.
