AUSTRALIANS enjoyed a white hot Christmas amid health warnings as temperatures soared to record highs.
Festive sunbathers have been baking in heat of around 37C in Sydney on the east coast.
The temperature is predicted to rise as high as 42C in the suburb of Penrith, Sydney, before the end of the week.
Steph Spackman, a duty forecaster at the Bureau of Meteorology, explained: “The sea breeze won’t be as strong tomorrow into Friday.”
The bureau’s heatwave service has predicted all of the New South Wales coast, which is roughly 1327 miles long, will have a three-day heatwave starting from today.
He said the rest of the state will experience a low-intensity heatwave.
It was a heat wave alright, and the temperatures are going to stay high in Australia for the next few months. SO I have an idea for you, why not book into a first aid course which will 1. keep you inside out of the heat for a day and 2. Give you the first aid training that will help you treat someone from heatstroke or hyperthermia. Great plan right. We are now offering many first aid courses in Canberra throughout the holidays and are more than happy for children to attend and get the training also. We offer great first aid courses for only $100 which is the best in Canberra. Book in now and receive a free first aid manual and cpr facemask to take home.
