Yes tricky forecasting day, with seabreezes keeping the bayside areas a lot cooler than the outer burbs.
High Dp's particulary in the bayside suburbs, DP currently 19c at Olympic Park.

Big temps in Western NSW - up to 46 - one could only imagine the stench from 1 million dead fish in the Darling River in those temperatures

Just reached 39.3c here a short time ago. A little higher than I was expecting. Like other areas, barely a breath of wind, just searing heat! We really will be needing some rain soon, so I hope something materialises at the end of the week. :|

Absolutely horrendous!! With another 4 days of those temps to come, many more fish will die 😢

I’m now sitting on 42c down the hill in the Marsh and still hardly any wind.

Gosh, that's quite a lot hotter than the BOM was forecasting. Just touched 39.7c here about ten minutes ago, but it has since dropped to 37.8c so hopefully it's on the way down now. The city is escaping the worst of it, but go only a short distance from the coast and it's a frypan.

Wind has swung round to a light southerly here around 3.40pm so now "down" to 39C - of course now the DP's go up from 11C to 17C!

First of likely 3 or 4 days in a row of 40c+ today. Yukko.

Wilcannia and Smithville made it to 47c in NSW. Nasty and likely to get hotter later this week.

I remember January 1988 being a bit like this.

Quite enjoying my time living only 200 metres from the beach.
While some suburbs hit 40c today it maxed out at 29.6c here after 27.7c yesterday.
Mind you it was very humid with Dew Points hitting 20c at times today.
Some rain would be good though only 1.3mm's for the month so far.

36C back home in FC so another stinker. That’s about 41C sea level equivalent so serious heat :roll:

Currently down at Walkerville with sea fog and about 20C. Was super humid here today, with car showing a temperature around 27C. Perfect beach day,

Today should be the peak of the heat in southern Victoria with less northerly drift so sea breezes earlier and stronger. North will be hotter again tomorrow. Airmass over SA is nasty with 47-48C across the hotter sites :(

Progs showing showers for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Should add up in the east and southwest, but other spots a bit more hit and miss.

40.7 and 40.3 at local stations, which was equal to where my red line was on back verandah.
what ive noticed this summer is the breeze, just a gentle breeze which has made the shade more bearable,
although not a drop now 1am. sitting @22c.
