No March records broken around here, seemed to run out of puff around 2pm when things normally taken off.
Tomorrow could still be very hot for the Upper Hunter though, places like Singleton and Scone may get a second shot.

The real oddity today was Penrith and Richmond not reaching 40.

Not really caring about 'records being broken'. It is oppressively hot for those who don't have air-con at home. Also I agree, 20 min drinks breaks should have been ruled in during the NRL match.

Looking forward to the cooler temps tomorrow and for the rest of the week. This is pure hell.

Still going to be warm in Sydney tomorrow, 30c for the city and near mid 30s for western Sydney.

You are not wrong there, and even having the aircon on all day is not that much fun either, esp when it has been on for nearly the whole of summer, bar a few brief reprieves.

I personally think it's quite pleasantly warm outside now. The wind has dropped completely and sun has gone down here. About 35įC now.

The temp may well drop quite quickly here with the lack of wind and dry air.

Yeh records are kind of incidental to the actual heat experience. But they are still a big focus because it is a record breaking thing that makes the event a significant event.

One of the worst risks of these types of conditions is bushfires and a disastrous one has broken out near Tathra on the South Coast, number of homes feared lost frown.

Of the long-term sites that I track closely, the only March record was Point Perpendicular, with a late-season record for Richmond. Will be interested to see how the fire danger index at, say, Bega compares with historical records - hopefully will be able to check this out tomorrow.

Waited down at Cronulla way beaches for the sea breeze.
A nice cool 22C under the water.
Surf was awesome at Elouera Beach
Beach fisherman were catching a good feed for dinner with the hardly any breeze at their backs as the sun went down.
About 8:15pm at South Cronulla there was a light puff of cooler wind from somewhere.
Possibly just a Northerly puff coming from across the water.
Got home with the SW change not far behind us.

We just got the pathetic change. Just a slight temp drop, huge increase in humidity and less wind than the westerly we were experiencing.

Haven't checked my March records but nothing special here either - 38.4 was my high. Bitterly disappointed I couldn't crack 40. The painfully slow climb by 2pm made it evident that the air mass just didn't have the guts to break records.

BUT

The let down of no records was made up for with the mighty Sea Eagles giving Parra a flogging. smile There were some elite athletes out there at Brookvale Oval* but I didn't see any in blue and gold!

* Nobody is paying me to call it 'lottery gambling business name' so Brookvale Oval it is.

Edit Reason: not hot enough

Wouldn't have made any difference to my Eels.
They could have had a drinks break every 5 minutes and still would have got smashed. So depressing. frown
