Record Heat Puts New Colors on the Map

It's so hot in Australia right now, they had to add two new colors to the weather forecasting chart. Deep purple and pink can now be seen on the map as Australia has broken a 50 year record of an all-time high temperature of 50.7 degrees Celsius. The range will now go up to 54 degrees, that is 129.2 degrees Fahrenheit ladies and gentleman.

It's so hot in Australia that the conditions have created a catastrophic fire threat across southeast Australia. Monday's temperature broke the record for national average temperature and the mean temperature. A total of six of the 20 hottest days in Australia have been recorded in 2013, a total that is sure to rise.

Stay safe people, hydrate, and don't choose milk. That would be a bad choice Mr. Ron Burgundy.

^ proof please. Given that the highest temperature ever recorded in Qatar is 50.4, Saudi 52.0, Iraq 52.0, Kuwait 53.5.

So I am just wondering where in the middle east you are breaking these records before the sun even comes up???
