Dome of Heat – Australia Adds New Color to their Weather Map
Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology’s interactive weather forecasting chart has added a new color – deep purple, to extend its previous temperature range that had been capped at 50 degrees.
The purple spot in the center of the country represents the new high temperature of 129.2°F, or 54°C. It’s a brand new color to the scale, prompted by the crazy temperatures being experienced down under.
To give you an idea of just how uncomfortable this Australian heatwave really is, consider that at midnight last this morning … they recorded 95°F in Sydney. Doubly scary are the giant fire risks that come with the heat — risks so severe Australian officials are taking no chances and labeling the warning “catastrophic.”
