The risk of fire is that Sydneysiders endured the hottest November night since 1967 and the mercury didn’t dive south of 25. 3C.
« Last night’s minimum dropped to 25. 3 degrees on Observatory Hill, ”meteorologist Helen Kirkup told NCA NewsWire.
The warm northwest wind will continue and likely see the CBD hit 40 ° C and Penrith 42 ° C.
A cool south is expected to fall between 2pm and 5pm, making for a far more pleasant evening.
Northeast New South Wales is also facing a hot day. Grafton is expected to reach 42 ° C and Taree 41 ° C.
With temperatures expected to remain very high across the state in the coming days, NSW Health has urged people to keep their homes cool with fans, air conditioners, closed blinds, and stay at home.
“People who go to the beach or pool should keep 1. 5 meters away from people other than those in their own household. To ensure everyone has a chance to enjoy the water and stay away from the heat, we encourage people to swim and walk, « the health department said in a statement.
