Heat­wave is or­di­nary

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS -

THE heat­wave in west­ern Queens­land is busi­ness as usual for res­i­dents and un­likely to top­ple records.

Michael Knepp from the Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy said Birdsville near the North­ern Ter­ri­tory bor­der hit 45C on Fri­day and did not drop be­low 30C overnight. Tem­per­a­tures are ex­pected to stay in the mid-40s for about a week.

Mr Knepp said the high tem­per­a­tures were four to five de­grees above av­er­age for this time of year but were not out of the or­di­nary. “To be fair it’s not much of a heat­wave, it’s a low in­ten­sity heat­wave,” he said.
