The Bureau of Meteorology has confirmed that a heatwave has taken place, defining it as being a period when the temperature climbs to 35 degrees C or above.

Over the weekend this consistent temperature level was reached and it has remained high in the city ever since, with the mercury peaking at 40.6 degrees C on Monday March 12th.
