    Default Brace yourselves...summer is here!

    Heatwave alert

    Looks like we're in for some crazy hot weather.

    I'm in NSW and it's 31 degrees already, but I'm not ready to complain when I look at what poor QLD and SA are in for!

    This is on MSN this morning:

    Temperatures around Australia
    ACT - Not expected to be above 30C for the next week.
    NSW - Central and west of the state to see temperatures in high 30s and reaching low 40s before the weekend. Western Sydney will experience mid-to-low 30s on Thursday and Friday but a cool change is expected next week.
    NT - Mid 30s to low 40s across the territory.
    QLD - Central and south west in high 40s through to the weekend, with much of the state hovering in the low 40s and high 30s for the next week.
    SA - Some town in the north of the state will see temperatures soar above 49C, remaining the mid-30s for much of the next week. Adelaide and surrounds expected to stay in the mid-20s for the next week.
    TAS - The Apple Isle will be spared the heat with temperatures remaining in the low 20s.
    VIC - Towns in the north of the state will only scrape past 30C while much of Victoria and Melbourne will remain in mid-to-low-20s.
    WA - Much of the state will simmer in the high-30s and low 40s with temperatures in the capital staying in the high-20s before climbing to 36C at the start of next week.

    Yeah, I get it, summer is hot, but some of these temperatures are extreme

    Oh it's just hideous isn't it!

    I don't mind a bit of heat though, it's the humidity that kills me

    Almost 50° in some parts of SA- how insane!!
    I'm another hater of the heat! So wish I could live somewhere in the northern hemisphere for 6 months, then here for 6 months just to avoid it.

    Nice temps in Tassie at the moment! But we got caught in the bush fires on the Tasman Peninsula this time last year and it was pretty horrific - so hot and smokey. My thoughts are with those in bush fire prone areas, stay safe & cool!

    Oh god! I didn't even notice. Guess the humidity isn't too bad then. Looks slighty overcast outside. Maybe we'll be lucky and have some afternoon showers.
