Wow that was a brief spike indeed, none of the half hour obs show temps above 30.5C.

I reckon that line of echoes on radar around Goulburn could be dust.

Wed next week appears to have been downgraded for NW areas, to 39C as a max in some spots. (Wanaaring, Walgett, Brewarrina)
This is only a very isolated area of the state as well, and not widespread like today.
Another crack at the Sept record this month seems unlikely now, so today was it.
Edit - the NE corner of the state, Grafton, Casino, Evans Head could still pull something off tomorrow or next week.

Might a record September Mininum be on the cards for some locations tonight? In coastal locations near Sydney it's about 27. At OH it was 23.0 at 9:00 and the record is 22.0 (24/9/2003).

We shall see.

It's a barmy night outside. I left the air conditioning (too cold) to enjoy the warmth.

Just been tallying up records. Of the 25 long-term stations I use for tracking in NSW, there are 14 definite records and 2 probables (Gunnedah Ag and Moruya Heads, where we'll need the final manual obs at 9am to confirm). Also 5 in Victoria, and 1 in Queensland. Largest record-breaking margin at these sites so far is 2.1 at Bathurst (coincidentally, I spent the afternoon within 1km of this site), although Kerang might edge above that when its final report comes in. From our preliminary analysis, looks like records over around 80% of NSW.

Still a scorcher here in the Highlands with 26C and it actually warmed slightly in the last few hours. Meanwhile Albion Park is at 16C.

min records over the tablelands would probably be smashed thanks to high temps + decent wind and cloud cover.

Wow Ulladulla nudging 32C!! Bega, Moruya and Nowra also in the 30's. Goulburn at 27C is pretty absurd too so could get even warmer on the coast. Is it January or September? confused poke

Even a few drops of rain up here and wind really picking up. Very gusty and trying to mix down I think.

Stupid high temps here tonight, went UP from about 8pm. Still quite elevated at around 26 now. Could see lots of dust swirling in the lights outside. So as mentioned earlier those radar echoes almost certainly areas of raised dust. Air tastes VERY dusty. Zero precip

Temp just jumped up to 6 degrees in a few places to
29-30C in Sydney metro now.
Including Sydney Harbour.
Got hit by blast of hot air when I opened the front door 10 minutes ago to let cat out.

It is 28 degrees at 11.45pm here in Riverwood. I always believed in climate change...now I am a firm believer.

This is just wrong at this time of the year. I can understand late October....

I wish I had cold beer.....

Who turned on the heaters?

When I went to bed it was 26.9c at 10.30pm at Horsley Park (an official BoM site close to me), it got to 28.2c at 2.30am and at 4am it was 27.6c!

Now outside the wind is howling from the NW at around 60+km/h as well! CRAZY, as the temps around here were supposed to drop to 18c overnight.

Has this ever happened before in New South Wales for any month ( 80% of the state establishing a new monthly record on the same day ), or, are you aware whether something similar has happened in the other states, to that extent?

It's just incredible.

Hot and windy now in the Sydney Metro.
Im now wondering if the sun will even come up today.
Is the Sun going to pull a sickie today?
How hot will it get today if we add some sunshine into the mix?

Sydney OH minimum of 25.7C at 6:41pm yesterday
Now 27.6C

How much will that smash the September record by?

Looks like previous September record was 22.0.
Looks like that record is about to get obliterated.

It looks like it was 23.0 at 9am yesterday so that would be the official 24hr minimum to 9am this morning.
