Not sure about the 40+ today, it's currently 29.5 degrees here with thick cloud cover.

Is this cloud meant to clear?

The cloud is mostly the the South with a backbuilding 'finger' extending over Sydney. I would not expect the cloud to stick around all day, there should at least be some breaks. BOM stuck with 'partly cloudy' in their 9:01 update.

Melbourne was cloudy for most of yesterday but quickly warmed as the cloud broke up during the late afternoon to a max of 38.

Richmond and Penrith AWSs are now on 33. Bellambi is 31.5 in a light Eastrerly. I think that the sea breeze is trying to get going, there's not much resistance, but the West might make 40.

34.2C at 11am and rising.
Certainly considerably hotter than this early yesterday, so the 40+ forecast is looking on the cards.

Agreed DerekHV, clear skies and the NW breeze is well and truly established here. My weather station is sitting on 35.4c.

It isn't just high cloud, but thick mid level stuff amongst it too. I guess even GFS can be wrong, it never predicted this much cover for today.

Penrith must be out of the cloud- 36C and rising while the rest of Sydney is low 30's.

I can't say I've ever seen Bellambi above 30C in a seabreeze but it's happening right here right now.

On about 35C and rising slowly here. 35.3 at AP and 34.8 here. The cloud seems to be thinning out a little but not clearing just yet. Still 35C with not a second of sun all day is impressive in its own right. I daresay without cloud cover it would be in the 40's right now.

It's cloudy here but Obs Hill has managed to get to 35C now. Odd that the Airport is 3C cooler

The seabreeze is up and going at coastal stations near Sydney, but at this stage it's a long way short of yesterday's sea gale.

This cloud is proving surprisingly stubborn. Like recent storms, it's hardly moving.

High 30s in Western Sydney, still 35 at OH. I note that the Hunter, under sunshine, is no warmer than Western Sydney. No station has reached 39 that I can see.

EDIT: Sydney Airport is under a light Southerly 'Bay Breeze', which is why it's cooler. The AWS is tens of metres from Botany Bay.

37.2C now, 38C at Newcastle Airport and even 37C at Nobbys Head.
You know you have a strong northwesterly when you can take out the seabreeze of the 360 degree ocean exposure of Nobbys.

We've just cracked our forecast top of 37 here at Kingsgrove. Just looking at the sattelite chart, we may only get a brief period when there's no cloud cover. However the sun is making a valiant effort now to break through

36.4 deg's here. A slight and very warm feeling breeze.
Varying between full sun and cloudy. At the, it's cloudy.
A great day to sit in the air-con and watch the cricket.

There's a break in the cricket due to typical Melbourne rain, so I went to check the vegie patch, and boy were they all wilting, even though I watered them early this morning. They are all really suffering under this heat. Just gave them another drink.

Temp here has spiked up to 37.5 degs. Still alternating between cloudy and full sun.

Either I'm used to the heat or already or this heat wasn't as bad as it was made out to be? It's only cracked 38c here and was forecast to hit 42.

To me it felt like high 20's low 30's.

Well it never got past 38, and around 4:30pm it was down to 35, with a gentle SWer, now it about 33 with a SEer and full cloud.

Humidity is still up around 95%, so it feels quite muggy.

Finally cooled down here and been raining quite steadily all afternoon. Has been mid to high 30's here for nearly two weeks. Nice to see the rain.
