Heat making a return to Adelaide

Ben McBurney, Wednesday January 6, 2016 - 15:38 EDT

Record heat scorched Adelaide in December, and the turn of the new year is unlikely to bring any respite as temperatures soar again into the high 30s from the weekend.

Daytime temperatures in the City of Churches were more than five degrees above average in the first month of summer, with seven days over 40 degrees rivaling records even set in January.

Whilst some places in the east of the country are shivering through their coldest January days in years, the turn of the new year will offer little respite for the South Australian Capital.

After a run of days in the low 30’s to cap off the working week, temperatures will really begin to soar over the weekend.

Saturday will reach the mid 30’s, before the mercury rises even further into the high 30’s on Sunday.

On Monday, a weak change may move through bringing some respite, but it will still reach the mid 30’s. However, winds may turn more northerly again on Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing a return to the high 30’s.

At this stage, a cooler change should arrive on Thursday, causing temperatures to fall closer to average.
