Sydney residents, grab your water bottles, set the air-con to school but sustainable level, and strap yourself in because it’s going to be a scorcher today.
The city is set to swelter through a 33 degree day, as we get a small preview of what summer has in store for us this year. If you live out west the news is even more grim, with temperatures set to crack 37 degrees out in Penrith.
With nature turning the oven on high, and one of NSW’s driest winters on record, Fire authorities have also taken the precautionary step of declaring total fire bans around the state.
So stay cool Sydney, and listen in to NEXT for all your weather updates.
