Fryday is upon us – but is this as hot as it gets?

Today I’m doing something a little different to photos of old buildings and other places or items of historic significance around Sydney. I hope you don’t mind.

Today has been labelled as “Fryday” by one of our major newspapers, the Sydney Morning Herald (SMH). They reported that temperatures are expected to exceed 40 degrees today and if so it would be enough to make it Sydney’s hottest three-day spell in November in 79 years.

So I thought I’d take a quick look at Sydney’s weather history. Particularly it’s hottest day since records started being kept 156 years ago. Did you know that Sydney’s hottest recorded day was as recent as the 18th of January 2013 at 45.8C (114.4F)? However this is what was measured at Observatory Hill, right next to the CBD. However, the highest in wider metropolitan Sydney was recorded at Richmond in Sydney’s west with a whopping 47.8C (118F). If you’re lucky enough to have the day off and you want to go to the beach, please don’t forget to wear sunscreen and drink plenty of water!
