Last night equaled the hottest night ever in Melbourne History. It was 34 degrees Celsius the entire night and at 9AM it had only dropped to 30. The only other time that temperatures have gone over 40 degrees Celsius and not dropped below 34 degrees Celsius during the night was in February 1902. They are predicting the temperature will rise again to 40 degrees Celsius today before a cool change comes in later this afternoon so at least tonight is expected to be cool.
I do have air conditioning in my apartment but it is very noisy and within minutes of switching it off the room is boiling again. If your interested it is a LG wall mounted unit which I am not impressed with compared to Eureka which had it built into the building which was 1st class. My house here will have it built into every room, that is a guarantee.
