Get Ready, Sydney... It's Going To Be A SCORCHER Today!

It’s barely mid-December but the weather is already heating up big time!

This week has already seen the temperature steadily climb in what feels like a way to ease us into summer.

However, temperatures are set to soar over 40°C today according to the Bureau of Meteorology. Penrith and other parts of the West will reach as high as 42°C.

With the temperatures hitting such a high, pet owners are being encouraged to leave extra water out for their pets and provide plenty of shelter or cool areas. 

The New South Wales Rural Fire Service took to Twitter yesterday to inform people of a total fire ban that will be in place for the Greater Sydney Region and the Illawarra/Shoalhaven region. 

Our favourite meme lords over at NSW Police have also posted a tweet to inform people of the insane temperatures we are to expect. According to them, temperatures inside a car can reach up to 70°C. It’s advised to never leave a child or pet unattended in a hot vehicle. 

You’ve been warned, Sydney! Prepare yourself!
