Whingeing Weather

Posted on the 05 February 2011 by Seabee
I see Dubai's weather is rain, low temperatures, a shamal and sand storms.
Sydney has whingeing weather too. We're in day six of a heat wave and the whingeing hasn't stopped.
'Can't sleep' is the most common complaint, as we're having record high minimum overnight temperatures and new records for the number of consecutive hot nights.
It'll be the same tonight. The weather report just said it reached 43C today and most of the night will be around 30C.
Temps are measured in the shade of course, so with the sun blazing from our clear, blue, cloudless sky it's very hot. And as February is our most humid month it's quite uncomfortable too.
Several severe fire warnings have been issued and a large area of the state, including Greater Sydney, has a total fire ban in place. The Rural Fire Service has dealt with over a hundred bush and grass fires this week. They're spread around, with currently new fires being fought in the Blue Mountains to the west and here on the Central Coast to the north.
A cool change is forecast for tomorrow and by Monday the Met Bureau says "the daytime temperatures will be close to the overnight temperatures Sydneysiders have been suffering this past week".
I have a lot of running around to do next week so I'm quite pleased to hear that.
