Hobart reaches all time record of 41.3 degrees: bushfires “on the run”

Watching the Deniers

Via The Age;

Bushfires are on the run in Tasmania, threatening rural hamlets in extreme weather conditions. 

The Tasmanian Fire Service posted emergency warnings for two large fires in the island’s south that broke containment lines. 

The Bureau of Meteorology said Hobart had its all-time record of 41.3 degrees at 1.53 pm on Friday, exceeding a 1976 record of 40.8 degrees, with hot and gusty northerly winds pushing the fires.

And so it begins.
