The Katherine Hot Springs has been busy over the past few weeks as people continue to take advantage of the ongoing poor wet season and extreme heat.
Although officially closed, the hot springs was packed with people over the weekend.
Generally at this time of the year a high Katherine River would render the springs a muddy mess, but not this year.
The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting Katherine will challenge heat records again this month.
The record (as applied at the official weather station at Tindal) for February is 39 degrees from 2016.
Temperatures are forecast to reach that and beyond, with predictions of several 40 degree days from Wednesday.
Katherine has had a record run with heat with records falling from March, October and November last year.
Of course the heatwave from last year broke all records.
The bureau's rain forecast for Katherine over the next week shows little promise.
