MILDURA recorded its hottest day since February yesterday when the temperature soared to 39.6C just before 4.30pm.
Last year the city’s warmest December day was on the 13th when the mercury tipped 41 degrees, however it was the only day above 40 degrees recorded for the month.
Mildura fell slightly short of its forecast 40 degrees yesterday, but it is already shaping up to be a hot month with the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) forecasting a top of 42 today before 39C tomorrow, with the mercury failing to drop below 33 degrees next week.
