The weather, currently.
Uneventful weather continues into the weekend.
Uneventful weather continues into the weekend.
Friday is dry and foggy at times, with highs in the upper 40s, and lows around 40°-41°— colder in outlying areas, potentially. This same weather pattern will continue for the foreseeable future. Dry, uneventful, with fog in the mornings and evenings and overcast conditions every now and then. Models could certainly shift, but as of now, I don’t see a pattern shift anywhere in the near future. Have a good weekend— should be a good one to get some outdoor activities in!
What you need to know, currently.
Extreme Temperatures Around The World
After 62 years the day arrived:Today 13 January Onslow AP Australia with 50.7C tied THE HIGHEST TEMPERATURE EVER RECORDED IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE. 50.5C also at Mardie and Roebourne. That January 1960 record which seemed unbeatable was finally tied. History is being rewritten
Australia recorded its hottest day ever recorded at 50.7 Celsius (123.3 Fahrenheit ) on Thursday. The last time a temperature this high was recorded was in 1960, before that, the country has only broken into the 50’s a handful of times. This comes after an extreme heatwave in the Southern Hemisphere this week.

123.3 degrees Fahrenheit in Australia today ties their all-time heat record and is 26 degrees higher than their average. Our political and economic leaders are sending us into a furnace. We need to act now on climate change.

Currently weather alert: Unusually cold weather is expected across the Northeast on Tue & Wed. This will be the coldest air in ~2yrs.

Prepare today: Leave a faucet running at a drip to prevent water lines from freezing. Know where your main water shutoff valve is, just in case.
