soaring temperatures

Should Sydney soar through the predicted 30 degree barrier today, it would be for the first time since March that this would have happened. The average maximum temperature in September is 19.9 degrees.

On a more colder note, Antarctica Sightseeing Flights in conjunction with Qantas has announced that it will have its maiden A380 flight over Antarctica to welcome the 2010 new year. The journey will take 11.5 hours and will not involve a landing on Antartica. However, it will fly over famous landmarks and passengers will have ample opportunity to view the various geographic features of the polar island.

Flights cost from $999 for economy, leaving from Sydney and Melbourne.

[edit 20090913 0235] The temperature right now is hovering at a balmy 20°C, which is indeed very summery. An indicator that tomorrow’s predicted temperature of 31°C may be reached.
