If you have been climbing under the doona this winter only to experience the hot sweats, you're probably not alone.
The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) announced on Tuesday that Australians have experienced the hottest 12-months on record, with a host of historical highs toppled.
The average temperature was 22.9C from September 2012 to August this year - 1.11C above the 1961-1990 average.
And it hasn't just been in the red centre either.
The uncharacteristic warmth has been felt across the entire continent with no regions registering below-average temperatures.
January 7 has now taken top position as the hottest summer day on record.
The month of January 2013 has been set down in the history books as a particularly sweaty one.
Those on land haven't been the only ones experiencing the sizzling trend.
"The warmth has extended to the oceans around Australia with widespread record warmth," the BoM said in a statement.
So put those doonas and coats away, as the warmth is set to continue throughout spring.
"The bureau's seasonal outlook for spring indicates both maximum and minimum temperatures are likely to be above average over much of Australia," the statement said.
