    Sydney swelters in hottest day since 1939 as mercury hits 47.3C

    The Australian city of Sydney has experienced its hottest weather in 79 years with temperatures in the region hitting as high as 47.3C (117F).

    In Penrith, west of Sydney, residents sweltered as the town bore the brunt of the heat on Sunday.

    Severe fire warnings were issued for the greater Sydney area and total fire bans were put in place across the city.


    Sunday's temperatures fell short of the scorching heat to hit the area in 1939, when the mercury reached 47.8C.


    The sweltering temperatures reached in Penrith were confirmed by the Bureau of Meteorology.

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    May I be the first to offer this as the excuse for England losing.

    Surely they have to call off that match in the circumstances?

    Absolutely, it should be declared a draw.

    Just hang on a few days, it will be pissing down.

    Sydney is quite radical with its weather swings, happens every year.

    Have been beavering away on my house so have not frequented the beach past few days. A mild 30c on the Gold Coast.

    Baps baking in the sun are an endangered sight these days due to ubiquitous mobile phone cameras. Making it hard work for us serious sports hunters that is!

    Here is a tasty tourist posing at Wineglass Bay lookout...
