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. www.bom.gov.au/climate/current/season/aus/summary.shtml
    Not exactly exactly an ‘angry summer’. In Jan, 1896, Bourke had 22 consecutive 40C days so that year could well have been warmer.
