On January 9, 1896 the Sydney Morning Herald reported Australia was cooling down, and temperatures at Bourke were only 117 degrees. That is ten degrees hotter than today’s forecast.
Later in the month, temperatures were over 120F, deaths were reported everywhere, and almost the entire country was over 100 degrees.
BOM throws out all pre-1910 data, because it is inconvenient for their global warming scam.
The forecast for Sydney looks brutal, with temperatures well up into the mid 70s today.
