Brisbane's Scorcher

It fell just short of the predicted 39°C, but was still a hot one here in Brisbane yesterday. Just north of the city, it was the hottest December day on record in Tewantin. The 39.7°C broke the previous December record (from 1901) of 39.2°C.

Additionally, two thirds of the state was put on bushfire alert and i heard on the news that 35 fires were being fought. In light of the report the came out yesterday, I guess the is a glimpse of future summers.
