Sydney had a record breaking 3 successive days of high temperatures with Friday 45, 44 on Saturday and 45 degrees on Sunday. Sydney’s West also recorded its hottest ever day, hitting 46.9 degrees at Penrith, while Richmond touched the 47 degree mark.
 In the Hornsby area temperatures peaked at 44.5 degrees on the Saturday. As an aside, the coldest Hornsby temperature for February was 9.2 degrees on 28 February 1989.
The Sydney Cricket Association that administers the Grade Competition abandoned all Competition games – the first time since being established in 1853.
