Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
here in sunny summery sydney we are in the midst of a heatwave with
catastrophic fire danger in some parts of the state.
Bureau of Meteorology heatwave assessment
I'm on the edge of Sydney's CBD close to the harbour (tho I can't see it) but it's effect means we are cooler than out in suburbia & in most of the state. Temperature at 4.30pm Sat is 35.4C here, with 44 to 46 in the west. (38 is 100F)
Everyone has been told to conserve electricity - eg. turn off & unplug unnecessary items. One of our largest energy companies shut down a smelter for a couple of hours yesterday as it uses 10% of the state's electricity & is doing so again this afternoon.
and tomorrow is expected to be 29! yah, cool weather (not) & about 10 degrees warmer in the Western suburbs.
