WAVE OF HEAT IN NEW SOUTH WALES.

Sydney, November 21. 1897.

A wave of heat prevailed throughout the colony yesterday, and is ascribed to a monsoonal depression which has worked its way across the continent from the tropics. In Sydney the thermometer stood at 78.5deg. in the shade at 7 a.m.and steadily rose, until shortly after noon, when it recorded 99.4deg. The heat continued till 5 o’clock, when a "southerly buster" caused a fall of 24deg. in three hours. Several cases of sunstroke are recorded, but none have ended fatally.

The heat wave has been followed by a cool spell. Light rain fell in Sydney today, and a cool southerly wind prevailed,the Acting Meteorologist said that complete reports of Monday’s temperature- showed that it was the hottest day this summer. At Jerry’s Plains, in the Hunter River Valley, the maximum temperature was 113 deg, and at 43 stations the maximum shade readings were over 100. The change brought with it light rain, but the falls were unimportant, and, with the exception of 37 points at Kiandra, ranged from 1 to 12 points.

THE WETLANDS ARE INDEED WET IN 2009. THE WATER HERE ATTRACTS MANY SPECIES OF BIRDS INCLUDING BROLGAS.

The floods took hold of boats as well.  One which was moored at the NORCO FACTORY dragged its anchor which caught in the ferry cable. Another is shown here at the wharf at the bottom of Coldstream Street near the Beer Garden of the Commercial Hotel.
