Maybe we could send you some of the big snow storms the US is suffering from. No fear of too much heat here. Some areas wind chills are -20 F or even lower. That would do a job on your heat.
Yes please, it might melt though. Heck any extreme weather is obviously extremely dangerous, wherever it may be.
I recently returned from the snowy alps of Japan to Sydney.
In one day I endured a temp difference of 45deg C. Was -7 when I left and was 38 here.
That's got to be a little odd. The humidity in Sydney at 45deg C is unimaginable. Glad I wasn't there. Thanks all for your great stories. I remember the weather as a kid was just as hot, but being a kid it didn't worry me.topcat:
OMG. I just had a look at the CFS map
It's pretty warm here in south Aus today, so I guess you're going to get more of it. Sorry.
Yes, it'll be hot all week.
Generally the Weather comes from the West. With topcat
living in Sth Australia I'll get their weather tomorrow, here in Victoria. There's no wind or weather systems, just humidity and heat, so in this kind of pattern it's quite predictable.
It's the compounding of the heat with consecutive days, it permeates everything, not to complain.
I could go to the beach, but by the time I got back, and it's only a Kilometre away, I'd be hot again. Probably hotter.
Best relief is to go to the Supermarket, or mall, and enjoy their Air conditioning.
, hope your Brother is recuperating well, and your family, and yourself are ok after the motor vehicle accident your Bro was involved.
Those temperatures are generally nice, if it cools off at night.
The day in Sydney at 45 C as harley
speaks of is just crazy.
"...The Ash Wednesday bushfires
, known in South Australia as Ash Wednesday II were a series of bushfires that occurred in south-eastern Australia on 16 February 1983, which was Ash Wednesday in the Christian calendar. Within twelve hours, more than 180 fires fanned by winds of up to 110 km/h (68 mph) caused widespread destruction across the states of Victoria and South Australia.
"...The fires became the deadliest bushfire in Australian history, until the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009."
(I lost my whole State, Victoria) that day, I don't think there was a blade of grass, or a Marsupial left, with just black sticks which were once trees stood, the only feature of the landscape . 100's of thousands of Hectares.
Thanks for that link topcat
, it's quite smokey today in Melbourne. Looking at the map says why.
