Illawarra to escape worst of heatwave

While much of the country swelters in heatwave conditions, the Illawarra is expected to miss out on the worst of it. 

The temperature in Wollongong reached a pleasant 23 degrees yesterday with a forecast top of 26 today and 29 at Albion Park. 

Similar temperatures are expected over the weekend. 

Temperatures above 40 degrees are forecast across large parts of Australia today, including Melbourne and Adelaide and inland parts of NSW.
