No easing yet for SA watering bans Adelaide's extreme hot weather is now officially in the record books as the city's first heatwave for November.
There have been five days in a row above 35 degrees Celsius.
Simon Timcke from the weather bureau says history was made before lunchtime.
"Shortly before 11 this morning we clicked over 35 degrees which makes it the first official heatwave in November in Adelaide," he said.
The previous hottest run was four consecutive days above 35 degrees in 1894.
The current heatwave is expected to continue until Sunday at least.
The maximum temperature is forecast to drop to 28 degrees next Monday but then rise again.
