summer usually sees its hottest temps in summer well great insight there. What sets this apart from other events is the unrelenting heat and feb which is traditionally hotter is yet to come. The bureau of meteorology has even introduced two new temperatures for their predicted temperature scales ( 50-52oC purple and 52-54oC pink ) which is unprecedented.

It looks like this summer has been geo-engineered.

In november and december there were so many days where the weather man said it was going to rain but it didnt. That was due to the chemical spraying above the rain clouds. I reckon they've been gearing up for this summer so they can hit us with a heatwave.

Its just the elites way of saying "Australia you have pissed us off so here cop this!"

Look what they did to japan. And that was for not becoming a multicultural country.

Lol, Im not sure I agree with your reasons for it, but from about late October through until now one thing I did notice was the 7 day forecasts quite often said rain was coming in 6 or 7 days time, then as it got to 3 or 4 days out it changed to chance of rain, then in the 24 / 48 hr forecast, which is usually spot on from the BOM, cloudy with little or no rain.
And they were right, cloudy with little or no rain.
