Firefighter died after winds lifted 10-tonne truck off the ground in 'freakish weather event 31st December 2019

We need to check the location if this event to see if this was associated with a firestorm, and possibly a tornado. Condolences to the victim’s family.

The New South Wales Rural Fire Service says the truck landed on its roof, crushing 28-year-old volunteer Samuel McPaul, while a second truck was also tipped over.

Big fire day unfortunately – and it seems a high temperature day with low humidity 31st December 2019

Big fire day unfortunately- and it seems a high temperature day with low humidity - when it gets to 41C at 11am (Richmond currently), then it usually is likely mid-40s day! The photo by the way is a picture from my friend Harley Pearman who is on the beach as part of rapid evacuations at Batemans Bay! High temperatures, wind and low humidity - recipe for disaster!

The temperature went up 10C in 2 hours at Richmond! Also the fires in St Albans near Wisemans Ferry has awakened after days - conditions are ripe today for dangerous bushfires!

Post edit 44.1C Penrith already exceeded mac temperature for today!

Edit: it’s already nudging 45C fire rating included calculated based on dew points temperatures etc

Further edit 46.2C Penrith Maximum now

Topped at 46.3C at 3:20pm

Thankfully i was wrong about my suspicions of spread of fires near Sydney. Only one day of bad conditions plus the work done by fire fighters held back those fires!

Sydney before “climate change” — over 50C, 122F recorded at Windsor Observatory, 1939 « JoNova

Yes i know people will knock back the article because of the source and that the thermometers “were recording higher”. But i look at some of the signs and observations associated with events a ie very thorough temperature observations ie it was still this temperature at 6pm and it got to this temperature at 9am. These observations people have seen me mention just in the past couple of weeks.

And, i again emphasise, even if people believe in climate change, the observations and archives of the past should never ever be ignored or thrown out. That is scientifically and ethically ignorant!
