NSW Fire Danger Simply Frightening

Tomorrow will see what is being called the worst fire conditions ever in NSW.

Sydney is forecast to hit 43c, with fire conditions listed at the second highest rating of extreme. South of Sydney conditions are listed as catastrophic, there is a state wide fire ban and all National Parks are closed.

For me this is simply frightening. I am fortunate to live in central Sydney and will only have to deal with the extreme heat – and potentially smoke if fires do break out. The hottest day I have ever had previous to this is 41c and I hid inside until the cool wind change hit – unfortunately for tomorrow that isn’t due until 3am.

One can only hope that terrible fires won’t break out.
