I've effectively missed all of Feb and Mar in Perth this year, my favourite time of year.

Not going to be very April-like the next few days (although Adelaide and Melbourne will miss the hottest of it).

Given that Perth doesn't seem to have had such weather in order to donate it to Adelaide, do I presume that this is coming from inland NSW?

The hot air mass originated in northern WA and the NT, and has been building up for some time (there were multiple hottest-ever-in-Australia-so-late-in-autumn records in the last week of March in places like Roebourne; it's the first time it's ever exceeded 45 in Australia after the equinox). Preliminary data suggests that today was probably the hottest April day on record for Australia in area-averaged terms, with virtually the entire country above average.

In marked contrast, snow is forecast down to 300m in the South Island of NZ on Tuesday.

Oh dear, we're in NZ in a couple of weeks' time.

Ah snow? I wonder what it's like to MTB on snow.

Has to be better than wet clay.

Adelaide's now equalled its record for latest-ever 35+ (and Sydney has broken its April record).

Is frozen wet clay better than wet clay?

Too many heat records being broken! :(
