Alice Springs has had 227 days over 110F (43C) since 1878. Nearly two thirds of those days occurred before 1910, so BOM makes them magically disappear.
Climate change and variability: Tracker: Australian timeseries graphs
BOM throws out temperature readings of 117.5 degrees, because they have a theory the readings might be off by half a degree. One of the most pathetic excuses for data tampering.
Excellent research. Thank you.
