From here :
A day after the mercury reached 106 degrees Fahrenheit in Melbourne,
the extreme heat pushed into Sydney on Friday, leading to the hottest
day on record for the capital of New South Wales.
The population of over 4.5 million suffered through the scorching
heat that peaked at 114.4 degrees Fahrenheit (45.8 degrees Celsius) at
the Observatory Hill. This broke the previous all time high of 113.5
degrees F (45.3 degrees C) set in 1939. The temperature rose even
higher, reaching 115.5 degrees F (46.4 degrees C) at Sydney Airport.
The heat was followed by strong wind gusts over 50 mph that arrived during the evening hours along with some overnight rainfall.
Cooler weather is expected for the weekend along with the threat for a shower or thunderstorm each day.
The combination of sweltering heat and strong winds have led to
numerous wildfires across both New South Wales and neighboring Victoria.............
