Melbourne sizzles

Today we got another 40 plus degrees day which is the third one in less than two weeks and tomorrow the forecast says the temperature will also go beyond 40 degrees before a cool change moves in.

Its been hot in Melbourne over the last fortnight and I am hoping that the Friday's hot day will be the last for this summer. 40 plus degree days are not exactly a rarity but when its continuous hot days it becomes unbearable.

With no rain forecast until next week its very hard to see how the plants can survive with minimal watering afforded by the stage 3a restrictions.

Also I have observed that the water storage levels have been going down since hitting 40% after the mid-December rains but this it to be expected with the amount of evaporation taking place at the moment.

If the current heat is a taste of global warming then it doesn't look good at all.
