Humodour Posted February 6, 2009 Share Posted February 6, 2009 (edited) PARTS of Australia will be hotter than the African plains or Middle Eastern deserts this weekend, while other parts battle raging bushfires and still others cope with widespread flooding. New South Wales is forecast to become the hottest place on the planet on Sunday, with the current heatwave sending temperatures soaring to 47C. Worst hit will be residents in the western NSW towns of Ivanhoe, Tibooburra and Broken Hill. Sydney will not be spared either, with the mercury set to reach 44C in the western suburb of Penrith on Sunday, The Daily Telegraph reports. While the hot, dry and windy conditions are expected to pose an extreme fire danger, parents across the state have also been warned their children's sports matches may not go ahead if coaches deem it too hot to play. The initiative has been applauded by medical authorities, who said the unusually warm conditions were particularly dangerous for the young and the elderly. http://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,25015424-1242,00.html Oh yaaaaaaaaaay. 38 Celsius here atm.
