Australia set to swelter through ‘severe heatwave conditions’

JOHN STANLEY

Heatwave conditions are predicted for parts of every state across the country.

Temperatures are expected to climb to the mid-40s in parts of New South Wales, with Sydney’s west predicted to be hit with the hottest conditions.

Penrith is expected to face a top of 35° today, with maximums above 40° forecast until Sunday.

However, there is some relief with a sea breeze to keep temperatures about 10-degrees cooler on the coast.

The Weather Bureau’s Sarah Fitton tells John Stanley “severe heatwave conditions” will be widespread.

“We’ve got a lot of heat sitting in the middle of the country which hasn’t really budged so far this summer.”

“A very broad area of Western Australia, South Australia, New South Wales, Victoria and also down into Hobart. So severe heatwave conditions expected to really start to develop this week.

“Even some extreme heatwave conditions mostly through eastern parts of New South Wales later this week.”
