In the most popular city in Australia, where temperatures nearly 40 days a day have passed almost a month
A remote Australian city has endured scorching heat for almost a month with temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius, but the locals say they would not have it in any other way.
Marble Bar in northwestern Western Australia is known as the hottest city in the country, but since Saturday it has 23 consecutive highs above 40C.
Despite temperatures so hot that you can bake an egg on a rock, the residents say they still have the dream and would not live anywhere else, news.com.au reported.

The remote Australian city has endured scorching heat for almost a month with temperatures above 40C, but the locals say they would not have it
Office of Meteorology spokesman Neil Bennett said it is back to normal for the city in the Pilbara region, but the recent temperatures have been slightly different.
In December the Marble Bar recorded a temperature of 49.3C, which was the warmest ever in the city – but still, the locals do not seem to be afraid of the heat.
The local Iron Clad hotel operator, Cheryl Manurung, said that the only time she sees the heat is when traveling tourists go through the city and comment on it.
& # 39; The cold weather scares me, it just gets too cold. I am completely happy with it, "said Mrs. Manurung.
She said that the record breaking day in December was extremely hot, but that the hotel does not yet have air conditioning, but that her customers choose a few fans and a cold beer.
& # 39; You can not get to the hottest place in Australia and sit in the air conditioning. You can drink a cold beer instead, "said Mrs. Manurung.
Marble Park Holiday Park operator Long Coppin said, while the place is popular for caravans and retirees, as temperatures rise, they avoid the area completely.
Bennett said that there is a certain complacency about the overheated weather by city dwellers, when the temperatures begin to reach 45C, it can be dangerous.

He said that while other regions in Australia have recorded higher temperatures, it is the continuing heat of Marble Bar that makes it so interesting for viewing viewers.
One of the reasons that the cities constantly have high temperatures is partly due to the soil and rocks, which basically heat up during the day, he said.
The remote location of the city is also north of the subtropical mountain ridge, a belt of high-pressure systems that stretches across Australia.
Winds coming out of the ridge, roughly from the south-east to the north-west, bring air to the city slowly baked in the deserts of Central Australia.
From time to time, a warm trough can bring warm air back to Southeast Australia, which can lead to high temperatures in St Kilda and Glenelg.

& # 39; Next week, Adelaide gets very hot due to the heat of Pilbara. It is our gift to the nation, "Bennett said.
The Bureau of Meteorology predicts temperatures will rise next week, with 41 degrees to hit the South Australian capital on Tuesday.
Melbourne is also predicted to survive many burning days during the week, with a thrilling 37C on Monday.
Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Rod Dickson said that there is a "little bit of uncertainty." was how serious the heat wave will be.
"We predict 37C and pretty sunny," he told Daily Mail Australia.
& # 39; The sea breeze develops until late in the day, but there is a little uncertainty about when that will strike. & # 39;
There is little respite from the heat forecast for the rest of the week, with an early forecast of 32C in Melbourne that is expected to rise to 35C on Tuesday, he says.
The rest of the week will fluctuate around 30C, expected to drop back to the high-20s by the end of the week.
