Sydney is about to swelter through five days of above 40C temperatures as a ‘severe’ heatwave strikes every state and territory in the country..
While a sea breeze will shield the city to some extent, Western Sydney has been warned to expect ‘extreme’ conditions over the next few days.
Residents in Penrith and Richmond will swelter through a week of above 40C temperatures with an expected peak of 43 degrees on Friday.
Tomorrow will see a maximum of 31 in the city and 40 in the west, with Wednesday temps to reach 32 in the city and 41 in the west.
The Bureau of Meteorology said hot days were expected in January but multiple days in a row of temperatures above 40 degrees were unusual.
The searing conditions are thanks to a hot air mass over the interior of Western Australia migrating across to the south-east of the country, according to The Bureau of Meteorology.
Low intensity heatwave conditions have been forecast across parts of central Western Australia to southern parts of the Northern Territory, southwestern Queensland and across NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia on Monday.Source: Daily Telegraph
