It is currently 39.6 here and we are still expecting 42. Have all the fan going on high speed and every door, blind and window closed.

40.3c according to NineMSN. So far we have no air con on, it actually doesn't feel that hot but I'm sure the house will really start to take in the warmth in the next hour.

Not sure, but quite comfortable. I just have my double doors opened and that's it. No fan or a/c on. Saw we are headed for 37deg tomorrow (Bris) though. Nice breeze here keeping temp down.
Weather zone says 30.7 but I am in a good location that gets breeze

40.1 here. We have the air conditioning  going and fans strategically placed throughout the house pushing the air through.
The kids are playing smurf village &other games on the Ipads.
The animals are all doing well.

40.3 says Weatherzone, blinds shut, fan on.

It's a dry heat so it's not too bad

Low thirties here, so quite pleasant. Starting to get hotter though, it's going to be uncomfortable in the next couple of hours.

41.8 Everything is shut up here too.  It's 27.5 inside but I'm expecting that to rise once the sun hits the back of the house. Very happy there is some cloud about.

It could have been much worse, I agree.

BOM says 37. It feels a little like it's dropping off, but maybe it's just wishful thinking.

You do, howdo, oh yes you do laugh.gif

Here it's 37.9 and there is light cloud cover that I'm hoping will mean that 43 isn't actually reached.

40. Can't tell inside as we have air onair on going since 9am.

We have just had a sudden cold change with light rain. I am hoping it is raining harder over the fires that are raging out of control around Tassie atm as it is expecte4d to warm up again in a couple of days. When we had our record 43 degrees on Friday it was dreadful. We have no aircon and very unlike Hobart, the sea breeze lasted for an hour and that was it.

31 according to the internet, much better than the 44 on friday

Not sure, but it's quite pleasant.

Tomorrow is supposed to be warmer for us (Gold Coast).

Just hang in there Sydneysiders, if the weather forecasters are correct tomorrow looks a whole heap cooler for you all.

According to the BOM, it's about 29 degrees here, although we live in a highrise on the beach, so it's lovely and cool and breezy up here in our apartment. Gold coast btw, so we aren't in the path of the heatwave.  Definitely feeling for everyone who is suffering in the heat today.

Don't laugh! It's hard to get a park at the beach when it's 40 (I didn't even go at 45) Tounge1.gif

Seriously stay cool everybody, hopefully it cools down sooner rather than later.

29 degrees here anything over about 35 degrees I start to go a bit loco so I am happy that Melbourne's prediction is for late showers.

#23 RipeWickedPlum

42ish I think here. I've been inside all day since taking the girls to day care. A/C is on and when I'm in the room with it I'm getting goosebumps! lol
But the remote control is broken, so we have one setting adn that is at about 19degrees full on.
I'm in the study just off the a/c room and I'm really quite cool atm.
I'm dreading the pick up from day care... it's too hot!

A tip: put a damp hand towel in the freezer (or lots of them) when freezing cold take out and drape over your neck or head
