Hide your seatbelt, hide your steering wheel.. she's hot out there.

Heatwave conditions are sticking around

The mercury gods are shining down on us.. and want to try and kill us. 

Ok, maybe slightly dramatic but my goodness, we're sitting at 37 degrees at the moment. 

We all know the drill when it comes to hot temps but let's go through them again shall we. 

1. Keep yourself cool with plenty of water, iceblocks, a cool towel around your neck. 

2. Check on your elderly neighbours and see if they're ok. 

3. Keep plenty of water out for your dogs, cats, any animal you own or is known to frequent your house (looking at you black and white cat under my car everyday). 

4. Whatever you do, don't leave your kids sitting in the car. 

 

The Bureau of Meteorology says we can expect it to stay up in the high 30s for the remainder of the week. 

A possible shower and thunderstorm could sweep in and save us for all of 30 minutes on Friday afternoon though- so fingers crossed. 

Then it's back up to the mid 30's for the start of next week. 

Please tell us how you keep cool in the comments, because we're struggling here!
