Fark, it's hot here!
Bureau of Meteorology South Australian regional director Andrew Watson said Adelaide was entering a new era of high temperatures.
"Twenty years ago the same meteorology would not have produced the same temperatures," he said. "We are very confident that this is correlated to a general warming of the atmosphere."
National Climate Centre climatologist Blair Trewin said a 14-day record would place Adelaide "off the scale" of Australian temperature records. "It will go down as one of the most significant prolonged heatwaves anywhere in Australia," Dr Trewin said.

Anyways, I think we can be fairly confidant about what'll happen next: wingnuts will claim that the surface stations are broken and we're actually undergoing a frigidly cold snap, thus disproving global warming. I'd put money on it if I were a betting man.
