Yes, and its expected to stay that way for the next few days and may even reach 45 deg C (113 deg F) before a cool change brings it back to a more pleasant mid to high 30's.

Must be nice. Raining and low 50sF (50F is about 10C) here.

Almost 70 degrees F in Washington DC yesterday. Today it snowed and tonight temps may be in the teens. Sounds like part of a standup comedy routine.

What is the melting point of hard plastic models? Do I need to start worrying?

Not having any air conditioning, I worry for my paint!

Thankfully, here on the southern coast of Victoria, temp has dropped to 28C here today after 36 yesterday.
Could be worse though. A hundred years from now we'll all be living underground to escape the scorching heat.

I was taking miniatures out to the club today. I decided to take them inside with the nice air-con rather than risk a melted puddle or plastic and paint in the car.

The midday news on the ABC was somewhat obsessed with the heatwave, but then, of course, it is happening in NSW. Only 28 in Melbourne, but still very humid.

Now, if only there were some way to swap the temperature extremes economically it could keep most people happy. (There will always be someone who complains)

46 degrees in Penrith NSW.

No one in their swimming pools here, everyone is inside

"46 degrees in Penrith NSW."

Not far from you Tiberius (between you and Blacktown). Nowhere to run. And it was snowing when we left the US, just over a week ago…

46 degrees is not nice, real bush fire temperature, we are all praying we don't get one

"46 degrees is not nice, real bush fire temperature, we are all praying we don't get one."

Roger that.

HI Duckancover

It reached 46.9 in Penrith and 47 in Richmond.

My son is in Bathurst waiting for his university dorm refurbishments to finish so he has stuff stored in his car.
A L&P soft drink bottle melted near the cap causing the soft drink to leak in the car.
