State of the Climate – 2014

The State of the Climate – 2014 is produced by CSIRO and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. Data and analysis show further warming of the atmosphere and oceans in the Australian region. Air and ocean temperatures across Australia are now, on average, almost a degree Celsius warmer than they were in 1910, with most of the warming occurring since 1950. This warming has seen Australia experiencing more warm weather and extreme heat, and fewer cool extremes. There has been an increase in extreme fire weather, and a longer fire season, across large parts of Australia.
