ABC TV News has said that the last 4 days over 40 make 2019 the record Canberra heatwave.
My graphic shows that 1939 takes the cake for the most significant heat event.
Notes re dates. The two days in 1968 +40 were on 31st Jan and 1st Feb.
This month the dates +40 were 15th to 18th incl. Also 1939 and 1968 were recorded by mercury in glass thermometers with a greater inertia than modern electronic AWS instruments.
