Australia Unusually Warm in September 2006

Warming

Much of Australia experienced record-breaking warmth in September 2006. For a swath of the continent across northern sections of Western Australia, Northern Territory, and Queensland, the monthly average of the days’ highest temperatures (average maximum temperature) was near or a little below normal, according to maps from the Australia Bureau of Meteorology.

But across the bulk of Australia, average maximum temperature was several degrees Celsius above normal.
