NO winters and an average temperature rise of four degrees.
That's the stark prediction for Dubbo in 2050 from researchers at the Australian National University (ANU).
They also say there will be 20 to 30 per cent less rain compared with the long-term average from 1960-1990.
ANU design and data experts applied climate modelling projections to Australia’s 151 federal electorates to identify the top 20 electorates that will be most affected due to climate change, according to a report released by the Australian Conservation Foundation,
"Climate change damage is already occurring across our communities," the Australian Conservation Foundation’s chief executive officer Kelly O’Shanassy said.
"This summer we have seen a devastating drought, intense floods, bushfires in forests that used to be too wet to burn, and record-breaking heatwaves. How much worse this gets depends on how fast we act to stop climate pollution."
Groom (Queensland), Maranoa (Queensland), New England (NSW), Parkes (NSW) and Calare (NSW) have been identified as the top five most affected electorates in the country.
Parkes and Calare electorates cover most cities in the Central West and Far West.
A close look at the data showed the average daily maximum temperature in Bathurst will be 24.5 degrees by 2050 compared with the average daily maximum temperature of 20 degrees in 1960-1990 - registering an increase of 4.5 degree, if the damage to climate is not stopped.
Similarly, the average daily maximum temperature in Orange will be 24.5 degrees by 2050 compared with the average daily maximum temperature of 20.2 degrees.
The average daily maximum temperature in Dubbo will be 28.3 degrees by 2050 compared with the average daily maximum temperature of 23.8 degrees.
Climate scientists have predicted that there will be no winters at these three places.
"What we experience as winters will no longer exist [by 2050]," the report said.
"The year 2050 will be dominated by extreme heat."
Dubbo will get 28 per cent less rain on average than 1960-90 and have up to 183 days over 30 degrees - 97 days more than 1960-90.
Dubbo will have up to 25 days over 40 degree - 24 days more than 1960-90.
Bathurst will get 19 per cent less rain on average than 1960-90. It will have up to 112 days over 30 degrees - 79 days more than 1960-90 and up to three days over 40 degrees - three days more than 1960-90 average.
Similarly, Orange will get 24 per cent less rain on average than 1960-90. It will have up to 121 days over 30 degrees - 82 days more than 1960-90 average and have up to three days over 40 degrees - three days more than 1960-90 average.
Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton, however, called the report alarmist.
"What concern me is that they are singling out rural and regional electorates," Mr Coulton said.
"The truth of the matter is that people at my electorate are doing more to reduce their emissions.
"Farmers have changed their farming techniques. They are using less water per kilogram of product produced. They are adapting to solar technology."
