Autumn heatwave smashes records

RIVERLAND towns this week endured the hottest April day on record and the longest stretch of temperatures above 35C.
The four-day hot spell began on Sunday when the mercury rose to 37C and peaked on Tuesday, with an April record high of 39.7C, measured in Renmark.
A 39C day on Wednesday also cracked the previous record of 38.2C set on Saturday, April 2, 2005.
