SA, VIC: Hot weather with fires around Adelaide. Daytime temperatures were 10 to 18 above average across southern SA and the SW quarter of VIC today as hot northwesterlies blew ahead of another trough crossing the Bight. Top temperatures were in the low to mid 40s, with Port Lincoln Airport's 43.5 some 18C above average. See hottest and the State Extremes page for details.

A blaze in the Adelaide Hills near Mount Bold Reservoir burnt through over 20sq km of woodland and destroyed the historic property Yaroona on Saddlebags Road. Some livestock and outbuildings were also believed to have been lost, and there were unconfirmed press reports of two other homes being destroyed. About 500 homes lost power and a number of roads were closed. The fire burnt strongly within containment lines, keeping 300 firefighters and water bombing aircraft busy. Milder weather on Thursday allowed backburning operations to bring the fire under control.

WA, NT, QLD: Monsoon showers continue. The first burst of monsoon weather for this season, arriving unusually late, continues to give modestly heavy falls across the far north. For most stations that recorded sizeable falls yesterday and today, it has been the heaviest rain since the last wet season and, in some cases, for nearly a year. The highest total today was again on Cape York Peninsula, where Palmerville recorded 75.6 in the 24 hours to 9am, 51 of this falling between 6 and 8am. Details in downpours, wettest.
