Sydney and Canberra are both reporting a record warm spell in July 2013. Hottest ever. Sydney had had (I believe) its hottest July ever.
The comments on the temperature "record" for July have been confirmed by some colleagues. Various "takes" on what it means, why politicians don't understand what it means, etc.
Most straightforward comment was: "160 year record for warmest July in White man's history".
