To say that this month has been a hot one is an understatement. It’s been boiling. Muggy. Gross. Unbearable.
Every capital city in the country has experienced above average temperatures, reaching up to 45.1 degrees.
Well, Huffington Post did some digging and calculated Australia’s hottest suburb so far in 2017.
Penrith, in Sydney’s west comes out on top with their hottest day reaching 45.1 degrees – that’s ALMOST 50 DEGREES. They even had six consecutive days with temps over 40 degrees.
No suburb in Oz has come close to that temperature all year.
