Renmark swelters through record heat

Friday November 30, 2012 - 13:19 EDT

Renmark had its hottest November day on record yesterday, as temperatures soared into the mid 40s across the region.

Renmark Airport recorded a maximum temperature of 45.3 degrees, just after 2:00pm ACDT.

Darren Ray from the Bureau of Meteorology says it was nearly the hottest place in South Australia.

"Moomba in the north of the state got up to 45.5, so Renmark was almost there but slightly pipped at the post," he said.

"That record [for Renmark] does go back to 1957, so it's a reasonably long record as well, so that's pretty significant.

"It beats the previous November record which was 44.6, which came in really warm November conditions in 2009."
