Record January heatwave continues



AND it keeps getting hotter . . .

After the hottest year ever recorded in Australia, came the hottest month ever recorded in NSW.

The Bureau of Meteorology said the State experienced a mean temperature 3.5 degrees above the January average of 24.7.

It was also the 10th consecutive month of above-average mean temperatures for the State.

The statewide average minimum temperature for the month, at 21.2, was also the highest on record, 3.5 degrees above average, while the average maximum temperature, at 35.2, was the second highest on record and 3.5 degrees above average.

In Coffs Harbour, January's daily average was 27.4 degrees, slightly above the January average of 26.9 degs.

But with the hottest Coffs Harbour day being 32.2 degrees on January 1, we came nowhere near the hottest day ever recorded here of 43.3 degrees in January, 2002.
