Be careful what you wish for.
November was the hottest month and ended the hottest spring on record for Australia, meteorologists say.
The soaring temperatures could make 2014 Australia’s hottest year on record.
Maximum temperatures were warmer than average across nearly the entire continent, according to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM).
Nine of the warmest springs on record occurred since 2002, said BoM Manager of Climate Monitoring Karl Braganza.
“Australia has been warming up by about 0.9C [a year] since 1910,” Dr Braganza told the BBC.
Australian temperature records go back to 1910.
