A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea strengthens a ridge to the northern coast of New South Wales. A frontal system will enter the southwest of the State late today before moving through central and southeast parts during Wednesday. These two system combine to drag a hot airmass over many areas today. The front is then expected to weaken into a broad trough across the northern half on Thursday.
So we sweltered in 34°'s knowing that tomorrows tempretures would be even higher. Getting the train into Sydney was easy. An Opal card was needed (bit like the London Oyster cards) and a tap on the button on the way into the station and then another tap on the way out and the money for that journey was detucted. Double decker trains with plenty of seats on the way in although not quite so easy to find a seat during rush hour on the way back.
No real plans for today other then find out what there is to do. The answer to that was plenty so it looks as if another two days will be spent here at Darling Harbour and also Circular Quays.
