Holsworthy Def has recorded the highest in the state thus far Steve. Interesting data gap at GP. Includes 1998 of course.

Here's Bondi Beach a little while ago:



(Taken from the following webcam: North Bondi RSL

Can't imagine where they all parked.

The Airport has reached 39.8, OH 38.0 and Badgery's 40.0.

Drove from Bexley North to Chatswood and back on freeways between 11:30 and 2:30pm.

Going there car thermo was 36-37C most of the way.
Coming back 40-42C (with the 42C at Kingsgrove)
4-5C increase during that period.

Suspect my car thermo is still about 2C too high in the heat.

GC i mean. There is a GP (green point) opposite me on the lake between Belmont and Valentine.

Badgerys Creek joins the basin 40's club.
40 might be a bridge too far in Hunter now.

Well you go from the desert heat to the desert sands of the beach. And when your blood starts to boil you can dive in the big oasis he he

Agreed on the beach thing, I could not think of anything worse than being anywhere near Bondi Beach right now.
I have the house closed up, blinds down and fans on in the bedrooms - much cooler in there than outside.. Lounge room AC is on and you wouldn't even know it was hot outside haha my station here is registered 38.7 degrees outside.

Exactly right Steve.
My son's football trial (soccer) scheduled for this morning was cancelled yesterday. Sensible decision.
I cannot believe there is no duty of care these days in these situations. It is insane to be playing an NRL match today in these conditions.
I do not think it is being alarmist to suggest that it will take someone to die before this insanity is realised.
This has more to do with the TV broadcasters and the billions they pour into the game than any issue of player welfare.
I'm listening to the RL radio coverage atm, (2MMM) and they are discussing that there hasn't even been a drinks break announced at the half way point of each half and how crazy that is. They just reported the temperature at Brookvale as 38 degrees. Probably correct considering Terrey Hills is currently 36.8 at almost 200 mtrs asl.

Crazy stuff.

They are highly trained athletes Homer, they have been training all summer for this. I do agree they should have drinks at quarter time though.

Agreed they are elite athletes. Still not convinced it is in the athletes best interests. And you know me......I'm no PC advocate.
Ultimately, I'd be shocked if they don't at least have the half/half drinks breaks.

Continuing the sporting theme it looks like a trophy for hottest temp in the Hunter today goes to Williamtown with a respectable 38.7.
Holsworthy Def the trophy in Sydney. But nothing for the record books . Unless a very late upset in the heat race

That's really interesting and that it occurred today of all days. Obviously most other times there's a southerly change before the heat can build or winds are too northerly (off the ocean). It's also likely the only place on the NSW coast that has not achieved 100F.

The rain event is still on, but it's now mainly North from about Wyong, including the lower Hunter, Myall and Port Macquarie areas. Forecasts for the Central Coast northwards include the 'T' word for Tuesday. Newcastle is up for 60-130 mm, Cessnock around 35-90, with most rain on Wednesday.

In Sydney, it now just looks like showers over a few days, adding up to about 15-35 mm.

Maybe there'll be some 'spillage' further South. We'll see.

----

I think today's results are in: the 40 club includes the Airport (40.5 - highest in Sydney), Badgery's, Bankstown and Holsworthy. Camden, Campbelltown and Richmond got to 40 rounded but no cigar.

OH finished at 38.4 (101.1F), only the third 100F after March 9, the hottest March day since 2004 and the hottest for the second half of March since 1940.

The hottest in the State looks to be Bourke at 41.0.

Doesn't look like any new records in Sydney.
