Adelaide swelters through hottest December night since 1897, as fourth day of heatwave expected


Adelaide heat
Adelaide has sweltered through its hottest December night in more than a century, as hot and gusty winds blew in from the east.

The temperature was above 33 degrees Celsius for much of the night and the mercury only started easing about 4:00am before dipping just under 31C after sunrise.

Weather bureau duty forecaster Simon Timke said it was one of the hottest December nights in a long time.

"Certainly the hottest for some time — we have to go back over 100 years to have a December night as hot as we just had," he told 891 ABC Adelaide.

The overnight minimum for Adelaide was 30.7 degrees at 7:17am, which was the hottest for December since 1897 when the low got to only 31.8C.

A fourth day of heatwave conditions is expected to see Adelaide's temperature peak at about 38C today ahead of a slight cool change.

Mr Timke said the wind would change direction during the day and bring some relief overnight and on Tuesday.

"We'll just see the temperatures gradually drop during the overnight period, so it will [still] be very hot during the day," he said.

"We'll sort of see that wind swing around a bit to more of a sea breeze direction during the afternoon.

"There is a slight chance we could see a shower ... possibly even a rumble of thunder."

But he said any thunderstorm activity was most likely to be over northern Eyre Peninsula and some far northern parts of South Australia.

Gusty winds worry firefighters

Meanwhile, fire crews are keeping a close watch on the lower north, where a massive bushfire erupted at Pinery last month.

Blustery winds caused a number of flare-ups in the region overnight.

Crews tackled trees which burst into flames, as well as grass and crop fires at Pinery, Hamley Bridge and Reid.

Country Fire Service official Daniel Hamilton said he expected crews would have their work cut out for them as winds changed direction during Monday.

"Certainly — across the state in eight fire ban districts we have severe ratings," he said.

State Emergency Service crews were busy across metropolitan Adelaide overnight, particularly in the northern suburbs.

The winds have brought down powerlines and trees.

SA Power Networks said there were outages affecting areas including the north-east and southern suburbs.

  1. I live in the U.S. and the video said "the uploader has not made this video available in your country." Thank you for posting, however. Our supposed "free country" actually controls our media and propaganda is at an all-time high, that while this should be mainstream news worldwide... we do not see it on our news. I have to go find the news myself :) praying for the you all.
