The number of days over 35 degrees per year in Rockhampton has nearly doubled from an average of 18.1 days per year in the mid-20th century to 31.6 days per year in the last five. Mid-20th century levels will more than triple to a projected 70 days over 35 by 2070. Combined with the humidity of Rockhampton’s summer, more days are seeing dangerous heat levels.
