Trove Tuesday - Hot March


Our ABC reported recently that "Sydney's hot spell is the longest ever, with temperatures soaring above 26 degrees Celsius for 36 days in a row."

It's interesting to note that on March 15, 1943 and March 15, 1915 newspapers from all around Australia were reporting on hot temperatures around NSW.
