The Katherine region has well and truly smashed all sorts of heatwave records - with more still to come.
The official weather station at Tindal has now recorded 23 days of above 40 degrees this year.
The previous record was 20.
The heatwave record was 10 days of more than 40 degrees in a row - we have reached 11 already with a week of 42 degree days to come.
With the Bureau of Meteorology forecasting five more days of 42 degree maximums it will end up being quite a record.
The unusual November heatwave in Katherine continues to break all sorts of records, the longest and hottest spell of heat in November and so on.
Forecasters say the heat is being caused by a large mass of hot air which built up over WA, on the western side of a high pressure ridge.
While the older records from Katherine show the hottest November was 46 degrees in 1991, the more recent records now taken at Tindal has 42.7 as the top.
Yesterday's top temperature was 42 degrees about 4pm.
The most consecutive days of 40 degrees or greater is 10.
We have already had 11 in a row.
According to the bureau today, Katherine's first relief from the heat, if you can call it that, is a likely 39 degree top on Friday before the heat rises to its familiar 40 degrees the next day.
The average temperature recorded in Katherine this month is 40.3 degrees, almost three degrees higher than average.
We also average 93mm of rain in November but there is none of that forecast at the moment although rain rates as "a chance" later in the week.
