Local news can be quite a challenge to find on the internet, so we thought we’d tackle the issue of what’s on the go in your area.
In this article we’ll take a look at the news in your neighbourhood today.
It’s hot outside in Sydney’s CBD – The sky is a blue.
But what’s the temperature outside?
If you’ve been on a hot day, you might have noticed that the sky was a darker blue than usual.
In fact, it’s not that unusual to find it a little more muted than usual in Sydney.
In Melbourne, it was an almost perfect shade of blue, but it’s a shade of grey, not grey as usual.
A little more blue in Melbourne’s skies would have been ideal, but in Sydney, it would have made a huge difference.
The blue skies in Sydney today are a shade lighter than usual and this has made it more difficult for motorists to see pedestrians and cyclists, and caused some delays.
