Sydney's West got off to a slow start because of inversions. The NW'er is also off to a slow start, although it's blowing 20-25 knots at Bellambi (where it's 32 degrees).

It's around 30-32 at most Sydney sites, with sea breezes trying to get going right on the coast. I think the NW'er will win out.

I think the NWer will definitely win out Steve. Sea breezes may get going but at some point in the afternoon they will get wiped out by the strong westerly/NWly.

Just checked some northern hemisphere cities. Beijing is warming drastically next week. So looks like spring finally starting up there. Should be autumn starting for us.

Anyway, they're off now, Richmond at 34.7 has warmed 6 degrees in an hour. Penrith still lagging behind on 30 but catching up. The flags on the Harbour Bridge (and looking out the window) show a brisk NW'er.

Windy speed increasing.

Hitting 40 somewhere in Hunter this arvo a shoe in I think Derek. Maitland leading the pack. Partic as that Nor wester picks up and forces the aloft heat down.

Lol I am glued to watching this event unfold. Too damn hot to be out in it. Got the fans running cranked up. Coldies in the fridge. Stats on tap. Pure Bliss he he

Yep, the old Richmond RAAF weather station that closed in 1994, 400 metres from the current one, often gets forgotten.
Hence the blip in January this year with the BOM's tweets about Penrith.
The current Richmond RAAF's March record is 40.0C from 1998.
Things have just started to take off again here, after a steady last hour, Williamtown the first past 37C. (a fair way to go there though to catch the 1983 record)

With not even a hint of westerly in Sydney yet the temp is just under 40 at Holsworthy. I think the Richmond record is under serious threat now. Which is extraordinary and downright freaking scary for this late in March

Quite breezy outside with the NWer at 39.00 degree's at Bankstown. Could probably be the most breezy hot day all season as the other hot days were relatively still in comparison.

Looking at the forecast the only plus is the rain coming mid week. Still struggling to see the signs of autumn aside from the later sunrise and sunset as end of the forecast we're up to 27 degrees.

I'd like to see more widespread rainfall across the state and continent. Until that occurs I will struggle to see a huge shift in patterns.

By and large looking at the rainfall forecast the rainfall across the country seems to predominantly teeter around the edges or be sporadic rather than any widespread falls from or in the interior parts. Quite sad looking forecast rainfall maps to be honest.

Can't say that necessarily bodes well for a cool down throughout the continent, either. Guess we'll wait and see.

Green Cape actually has a new all time record for any month, 37.4 (old and new sites). I suspect that the data does have gaps, and 1993-1999 are missing.

The car thermometer was showing 38 a little while ago. That's consistent with readings around Sydney. I think that 40 might be a bit too far off OH now. So far it has peaked at 37.7 and may go a bit further. As mentioned, Holsworthy has passed 40, a couple of other Sydney sites might.

I see live NRL (Brookvale) in the TV schedule. It's probably not a great day to be playing NRL.
