The world is currently experiencing a wide range of weather extremes as people in the UK freeze while people in Australia melt in the hottest summer ever.
The UK is current experiencing a huge cold blast which has bought snow to most of the country and forced schools to close.
In Australia they are having one of their hottest ever summers which is causing huge amounts of fire problems.
The city of Sydney had its hottest day on record on Friday, with temperatures reaching nearly 46C.
A temperature of 45.8C was recorded at Observatory Hill in the city, in mid-afternoon local time.
Some areas nearby Sydney were even hotter, with the town of Penrith, to the west, getting up to 46.5C.
The previous recorded high in Sydney was in January 1939, when the thermometer topped 45.3C at Observatory Hill.
The heatwave across Australia in recent weeks has been so intense that weather forecasters have had to add a new shade to its colour-coded temperature chart, so the scale now reaches above 50C.
However, meteorologists have forecast a dramatic change in weather this weekend in Sydney, with thunderstorms expected to bring a rapid drop in temperatures.
