The heat in central Australia is still evident particularly inland South Australia. The contrast between the heat and cooler conditions in the deserts can be attributed to the rain map! As the ex-tropical low breaks down the rain begins to head east in readiness to send at least some rain to eastern Australia. Farmers are now extremely desperate in all regions if NSW and Queensland in particular with regions going weeks at a time with heat and no rain. A major bushfire continues in South Australia having gone for weeks now. Hopefully the predicted rain douses this fire. Rain and flood warnings are current in parts of inland north Western Australia.
