While we struggle through 50 degree temperatures in this not very cold January, Australia is also struggling through 50 degrees - only Celsius, in other words really, really hot.
A family friend who moved to Sydney sent this map along while complaining of 109 degree temperatures. PopSci details how the Bureau of Meteorology needed to add two new colors to the heat map. The purple blob in the middle indicates 52-54 Celsius (somewhere between 122 and 125 Fahrenheit.)
