Hottest February day in NSW as “extraordinary heatwave” moves across Australia
The heatwave moving across the sub continent is expected to intensify over the weekend, elevating the threat of potentially catastrophic fire conditions, authorities warned.
New South Wales could face its hottest February day on record, with temperatures reaching 47ºC in western parts of the state, said the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM).
The temperature reached 47.4ºC in Hay Airport, making it the third-hottest day recorded in February for NSW, and the record could be shattered on Saturday, said reports.
Meanwhile, Sydney set a temperature record for the number of days over 35ºC, as most of the city broiled in the 40s.
