Heatwave: a quick question
ABC are tracking a "heatwave" over Australia. The lead in sentence reads: As a heatwave hits inland Australia and temperatures top 50 degrees Celsius, track the weather across the country with our animated visualisation, updated hourly.
We bolded the claim about temps topping 50 degrees Celsius. A quick look at the BOM's weather extremes page doesn't show any readings above 50. We have asked ABC for an explanation.
