Fly to Australia for unbeatable sun

Australia is enjoying record high temperatures today as the sun continues to shine on Sydney. The city's temperatures reached 45.8 C today, beating the previous record of 45.3 C, which was set in 1939. Temperatures at Sydney airport were even higher, reaching 46.6 C. Thousands of locals and visitors flocked to the beaches of Sydney to bask in the sun on the hottest day on record. It’s not just Sydney that enjoyed record breaking temperatures - Australia’s average maximum temperature has passed 39 C seven days in a row, breaking yet another record. Temperatures soared so high that CityRail advised its passengers to carry water with them at all times and to seek help if they began to feel unwell. Meteorologist, Dick Whitaker called the record breaking temperatures in the Australian city a “Historic day for Sydney.” The heatwave has been affecting large parts of Australia since late 2012, according to the Bureau of Meteorology. The nation experienced it hottest day on record on 7th January, when average temperatures hit 40.33 C. The Bureau said “the record setting temperatures were not limited to Sydney, with records being set along the coast.” The consistent hot weather has led to a new set of colours being added onto Australia’s weather maps to indicate the new hot temperatures. The colour coded map, previously capped at 50 degrees, represented by black, has now added dark purple and magenta to its colour map as temperatures are expected to hit 54 degrees in some areas. The all-time record temperature in Australia is 50.7 C, which was set in January 1960, at Oodnadatta in South Australia State. Image Sources: 1 2
