Weather industry BoM's Heatwave Service recommences
Tue 1 Oct 2019.

With our rapid propulsion into summer, the Bureau's Heatwave Service, which is normally active from early spring to late autumn, was in use from day one. Heatwaves are defined as three or more days in a row when both daytime and nighttime temperatures are unusually high for a location.

The service provides a series of seven 3-day maps, two showing the current situation and five giving progressive 3-day forecasts showing heatwave location and severity across Australia. They are categorised as low-intensity, severe and extreme.

Early warning, especially of severe and extreme heatwave conditions, is important not only for bushfire and infrastructure management but also for vulnerable people such as the elderly, ill and very young who need to take special precautions. A recent survey found that since 1900 heatwaves have killed more people in Australia than all other natural hazards combined. An article by some of the survey team in The Conversation goes more briefly into the history of heatwaves and how not to lose your cool in one.

The Heatwave Service is available on the Bureau’s website.

Provisional records set or equalled today

Obvious errors have been corrected, however this is realtime data which has not yet been validated. Full validation of official records by the BoM Quality Management System (QMS) is a much more complex process and may take some months. Go here for further information on this records section and how the QMS works. These provisional records are based on data received as at 1426 EST on 02/10/2019.
