I don't have air-conditioning either. My house is very hot and I won't be able to go outside when it cools because their is too much smoke around.
There has been several different temperatures given for max in Hobart today - 40.9, 41.3, 41.8 and 42 - so I am not sure which one is correct
I did here that just before the fire front went through at Dunalley a temperature of 54C was recorded. Usually weather station don't survive fires going through so they are saying that this is an important reading as it shows the temperatures that fire fighters have to work in.
