Sydney swelters in second hottest day ever recorded

Sydney swelters in second hottest day ever recorded

Sydney Cricket Ground is about midway between two weather stations where temperatures reached 43.4 degrees and 43.7 degrees.

"A front will bring cooler conditions to coastal areas during the afternoon and through the west in the evening".

"The total fire bans are again in force today for the Greater Sydney environment which includes the Blue Mountains and the Central Coast, but also the Greater Hunter region which is effectively from Newcastle up through the Hunter to places like Scone and Muswellbrook", he said.

At first, Australia's Bureau of Meteorology thought it was the hottest day in Sydney's history, but later found a 47.8-degree day in 1939.

At the SCG, where day four of the fifth Test is now being played, another record has likely been broken.

Sunday's temperature remains the record high for Penrith, and the second highest for Sydney overall.

Sydneysiders headed for the beach, lakes and rivers to beat heat yesterday, while matches at an global tennis tournament in the city were cancelled because of the extreme temperatures.

It was a relatively warm start to the day even at dawn as the mercury failed to dip below 22 in Sydney overnight.

Penrith was sitting at 30.4 and Campbelltown was recording a temperature of 31.1 degrees at 9am. The day will be partly cloudy, and the city is tipped to hit a high of just 22 degrees today.

It will reach a high of just 30 degrees in Darwin today, with rain and storms likely.

"We're not going to see the proper change coming through until Tuesday", Mr Casper-Richardson said.

A severe fire danger rating has been issued for the greater Sydney region on Sunday while much of the rest of the state has a "very high" rating.

A total fire ban means no fires can be lit in the open and all fire permits are suspended.

NSW Health warned Sydney is predicted to experience poor air quality tomorrow due to high ozone levels and little wind, which can be unsafe for asthema sufferers and those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

This means those with respiratory problems such as asthma will need to be extra cautious during the hot weather and keep their reliever medication nearby.
