Here at 8:45pm, full cloud, light SEer, 30 degrees. It's going to be a hot night!

I've got some windows open with a mist spray working outside the in coming breeze window...

Cloud cover has been around 90% all day here, temperature has dipped down to 29c, the only upside to the cloud was it kept the high 30's and 40's away, but with it, the humidity was neigh unbearable.

I actually had to hold the hose on trickle in my dogs mouth at a few points today because he simply could not get up to get a drink!

Tocal still sitting at 30.6c at 10.30pm while most other places nearby are sitting on 26-27c, Tocal by the way did reach 40.2c.

No breeze here tonight, still relatively warm at 27c after a top of 39c.

Hahahahaha. That was a smart arse comment Homer poke I do however agree with kizz's editing.

Today was a bit of a let down only reaching 35C. There was potential for sooo much higher and our first 40C of 2016. To rub it in, the cloud starting clearing at around sunset to partly cloudy skies. It was deadset the weirdest afternoon though. From about lunchtime until the end of the day there had hardly been a breath of wind which is so unusual in such warm weather. The calm conditions have prevailed after sunset as well but that isn't worth mentioning since it happens all the time at night.

Noted EddyG- Tocal has actually been setting the pace lately locally.
Strange the old Maitland station was often hotter than it, now it appears the reverse.
The new station looked perfectly placed for spectacular temperatures, hasn't quite happened yet.

You tell em RS!!!! wink

This weather is so unusual, looking outside it looks as bleak and calm as a day can get. It has that cold drizzly look but yet it's 28C. We had a warm min of 22C overnight. Top of 36C here expected today and hopefully this trough that is overhead (and saving us from extreme heat) will deliver a few storms. At least they are in the forecast so that is a half decent sign.

Nowra AP broke it's min record by a long shot this morning, registering 24.7C. The night was fairly warm in Sydney (even Camden managed to stay above 20) with the warmest min also being 24.7 at Penrith which is equal warmest December night on record.

Partly cloudy, filtered sunlight and 31 degrees here with very little wind.

Surprised to see on the radar a rainband extending from about the Royal National Park WNW across Sydney's South and the Blue Mountains to Orange. Doesn't seem to be much in it.

Top prediction here today was 38C, currently at 27.5C, and we just had a very light shower. Something tells me it won't make that 38C.

We're getting rain. Very light, but it's been going on for about 15 minutes.

Right, Brightside, I was wondering if those showers shown on the radar were virga because nowhere has registered any measurable rainfall. Maybe it mostly is but some is apparently reaching the ground.

It's now solid but thin overcast here with a few gaos visible to the North. The cloud looks set to stick around for a few hours at least. Still hot and calm, around 32-33. An Easterly is just starting up at Fort Denison and a Bay breeze at the Airport. Very much a copy of yesterday.

Centres in the Hunter Valley have reached 38-40 under sunshine.

It's very warm further south as well, Nowra on 34C and Moruya Ap at 36C and judging by the satellite Nowra looks to be in broken sunshine and perhaps Moruya is almost completely sunny. Meanwhile we have full cloud cover here and temps are 24C on the coast, 29C at Albion Park with light NEers while here it is nearly calm with 31C. Very hard to judge the wind dir but it seems to be coming from the easterly quadrants as well.

Scrap that last bit, we now have a few gusts of N/NNWly breeze and temp 31.5C. My last observation was about 15 min ago, I should've rechecked before submitting this post.

Well I think I can kiss goodbye to the predicted 38 top temp today, currently 27, with a light NWer, and full cloud and light rain.

We've had some light rain here as well. Nothing measurable though.
Currently 29.8 and very dull.
