In their article about a WMO report, the Age inform us that the Bureau of Meteorology had to add extra colours to its charts during Australia’s record summer of heat.

As the map shows, the purple patch sits over South Australia. So how hot was it there last summer?

It appears, much cooler than the record summer of 2000, and not even as hot as the summer of 1938.

I wonder how they managed without a pink crayon then?
