3 March 2019 Extreme Heat: Heatwave Advice Reduced Threat for South Australia

2 March 2019 Extreme Heatwave Emergency Warning for South Australia

1 March 2019 Extreme Heatwave Emergency Warning for South Australia

28 February SES Extreme Heatwave media release for South Australia.

27 February SES Extreme Heatwave media release for South Australia.

Even though the SES has not issued an Extreme heat media release, it is worth reminding ourselves of what they wrote in their 21 Jan 2019 Extreme heat media release, as we look at BOMs 7 day forecast of another six days  in a row of maximum temperatures over 36C.

The SES has issued an Heatwave Advice Reduced Threat advice for South Australia.

Adelaide’s highest recorded temperature 47.4C.

Adelaide and South Australian residents have been on a roller coaster of extreme weather conditions for the last few weeks.  Today 24th January 2019 temperatures hovered in the high 40’s for hours, peaking at never seen before  high of 47.4C in the last 42 years of recordings. For more details.

The SES has issued an Extreme Heatwave Emergency Warning for South Australia.

SES Extreme heat media release

Three of the highest December temperatures  have all occurred in the last 5 years.
Adelaide has again reminded residents it’s not a place to live with out some form of cooling.  Hitting 43.1C over two degrees past the predicted maximum of 41C. At 43.1C   it’s the third highest temperature recorded for December at the Kent town weather station over the last 42 years. See more details

SA State election 2018: Update 27 March: The seat of Adelaide with only 89% of votes counted has swung away from Jo Chapley, ALP who is currently trailing  Rachel Sanderson, Liberal party  by 425 votes on two candidate preferred. The seat of Mawson with only 92% of votes counted has Leon Bignell, ALP  currently leading Andy Gilfillan, Liberal party  by 115 votes on two candidate preferred.

SA State election 2018 preliminary results: The Liberal party has secured 20 seats,  ALP 17 seats, the independents 3 seats, and there are  7 seats undecided.  It most likely will be a new Liberal SA government, with a small possibility of some deals with independents. Of course ALP have too much ground to make up needing to get the 3 independents plus another 4 seats from the undecided, which  means making deals with  SAB candidates  if they win. So  Labor minority government may be a possible outcome with independents and SAB!

SA state and Adelaide area: The SES has canceled the Extreme Heat Warning for South Australia. SES Warning details:

SA State election 2018: Update 27 March: The seat of Adelaide with only 89% of votes counted has swung away from Jo Chapley, ALP who is currently trailing  Rachel Sanderson, Liberal party  by 425 votes on two candidate preferred. The seat of Mawson with only 92% of votes counted has Leon Bignell, ALP  currently leading Andy Gilfillan, Liberal party  by 115 votes on two candidate preferred.

SA State election 2018 preliminary results: The Liberal party has secured 20 seats,  ALP 17 seats, the independents 3 seats, and there are  7 seats undecided.  It most likely will be a new Liberal SA government, with a small possibility of some deals with independents. Of course ALP have too much ground to make up needing to get the 3 independents plus another 4 seats from the undecided, which  means making deals with  SAB candidates  if they win. So  Labor minority government may be a possible outcome with independents and SAB!

28 February SES Extreme Heatwave media release for South Australia.

3 March 2019 Extreme Heat: Heatwave Advice Reduced Threat for South Australia

2 March 2019 Extreme Heatwave Emergency Warning for South Australia

1 March 2019 Extreme Heatwave Emergency Warning for South Australia

28 February SES Extreme Heatwave media release for South Australia.

27 February SES Extreme Heatwave media release for South Australia.

Even though the SES has not issued an Extreme heat media release, it is worth reminding ourselves of what they wrote in their 21 Jan 2019 Extreme heat media release, as we look at BOMs 7 day forecast of another six days  in a row of maximum temperatures over 36C.

The SES has issued an Heatwave Advice Reduced Threat advice for South Australia.

Adelaide’s highest recorded temperature 47.4C.

Adelaide and South Australian residents have been on a roller coaster of extreme weather conditions for the last few weeks.  Today 24th January 2019 temperatures hovered in the high 40’s for hours, peaking at never seen before  high of 47.4C in the last 42 years of recordings. For more details.

The SES has issued an Extreme Heatwave Emergency Warning for South Australia.

SES Extreme heat media release

Three of the highest December temperatures  have all occurred in the last 5 years.
Adelaide has again reminded residents it’s not a place to live with out some form of cooling.  Hitting 43.1C over two degrees past the predicted maximum of 41C. At 43.1C   it’s the third highest temperature recorded for December at the Kent town weather station over the last 42 years. See more details

SA State election 2018: Update 27 March: The seat of Adelaide with only 89% of votes counted has swung away from Jo Chapley, ALP who is currently trailing  Rachel Sanderson, Liberal party  by 425 votes on two candidate preferred. The seat of Mawson with only 92% of votes counted has Leon Bignell, ALP  currently leading Andy Gilfillan, Liberal party  by 115 votes on two candidate preferred.

SA State election 2018 preliminary results: The Liberal party has secured 20 seats,  ALP 17 seats, the independents 3 seats, and there are  7 seats undecided.  It most likely will be a new Liberal SA government, with a small possibility of some deals with independents. Of course ALP have too much ground to make up needing to get the 3 independents plus another 4 seats from the undecided, which  means making deals with  SAB candidates  if they win. So  Labor minority government may be a possible outcome with independents and SAB!
