Prolonged SA heat could break records

A total fire ban has been issued for parts of South Australia amidst a wave of warm weather that could break records.

Above-average temperatures are expected through the weekend until Tuesday and that is “most unusual” at this time of year, Bureau of Meteorology duty forecaster Peter Webb says.

“I think three days over 33 in a row would be a new record, if it happens,” he told AAP on Saturday.

“Prolonged heat like this is pushing the boundaries.”
