Temperatures continue to soar in Australia

18 January 2013

Australia continues to sizzle as high summer dries the bush and temperatures hit new records.

Tourists arriving from frozen climes buckled on leaving the air-conditioned airport, and even the locals are complaining. Cooler temperatures are expected tomorrow.
