Temperatures in the Sydney CBD hit a record high for October today.
Meteorologist Peter Dundah, says the highest temperature has been recorded at Observatory Hill.
"We've had records since 1859 - the previous hottest October day was in October 4, 1942 when Observatory Hill recorded 37.4 degrees," he said.

"Today we surpassed that and actually recorded 38.2 degrees at about 1:30pm."

This does not bode well for our summer bushfire season.

So that's what for that heat was saved when summer here was cold and wet!

Well, you can't really say anything from temperatures at start of summer.
Start of May was record warm here... after that weather changed to much colder and actually those few days were only heat days before July. Also after those couple days weather changed colder.

Doesn't that area usually get it bad during El Nino years?

Oh yeah, we're in the middle of a huge drough here in New South Wales... dam capacity is less than 50% and there hasnt been decent rain for a long time (and when there is its only for a day or so then it goes back to sun sun sun)... its good if you like the beach
... but if you like to drink water and wash yourself things are looking bleak...

So this winter up north when your chilling your asses off... just remember us Aussies getting a nice tan and roasting out thirsty heinies off

The drought's worse here in Victoria than in NSW. Our reservoirs are at about 40% give or take around 3%.......... and they've put us on permanent water restrictions. Huge fines if you break them, running into the thousands.

It's cooler now, but Tuesday was 32C ........ which has never happened in my memory at this time of year.
