PARTS of Australia are facing “catastrophic” fire conditions over the weekend as a heatwave sweeps across the country and threatens power outages in NSW and South Australia.

NSW, Queensland and Victoria expect extremely hot conditions on Saturday and Sunday with the mercury to climb well beyond 40C in many locations. The heat is expected to continue throughout the weekend before things cool off early next week.

Give us your hot report WR.

Lol.

Well I'm in aircon, I have a box of Jewish religous/funeral candles waiting downstairs, that I dug out of the attic, they are the ones you burn for a week when someone dies.. 13.gif

The blackouts haven't happened.. Fingers crossed.. They made a huge aluminium plant up the coast, that uses 10% of the states energy, to shut down part of their operations for a few hours to ease the grid, so they did that yesterday and today, so all was good.. Was nearly 40C again today, same as yesterday.. Parts of the burbs are 46.5C..

Hottest summer ever just about.

Those climate change whores will be wetting themselves..

Cool change tomorrow for my city, hopefully a big tropical thunderstorm will happen, inbetween the heatwaves, we had torrential storms that flooded everything, that was mid week.. Mother Nature..

Yeah, it's more like 60 degree difference though, but that's irrelevant when it's otherwise so similar.
