Sizzling week in Melbourne

Today was the first day of the days over the 40 degrees and although the forecast was for 41 degrees the mercury actually reached 43 degrees.

Tomorrow the forecast for Melbourne is 43 degrees and the same thing for Friday but I actually expect the temperatures to go beyond that.

The first 'cool' day will be Saturday when the temperature is forecasted to reach 35 degrees and then 31 on Sunday.

The continous hot days are very hard to handle because there is no cool change at night and the temperature basically stays high all that time.

One of the biggest problems that I dread at this time is cancelled train services. Today I had to wait for more than 20 minutes to get the train on my way home and I expect a similar thing for the next two days.

I am not surprised about all the talk about heat at the Australian Open and I actually wonder how people can sit down in 30 plus heat watching tennis when the roof is not closed.

I am hoping that there will no more heat wave until next summer. Its interesting to see that it had not been really 'hot' so far until this week.
