The suburb of Penrith in Sydney, Australia isn’t a hot destination for tourists, but it was a searing place — temperature wise at least — on Sunday.

Penrith hit a 80-year high with temps of 47.3 degrees Celsius (117.14 degrees Fahrenheit) at 3:25 p.m., just shy of missing the area’s record high set in 1939.

It’s a far different situation to the “stupid-level cold” the U.S. is experiencing, thanks to the bomb cyclone wreaking havoc along the country’s eastern seaboard. 

#SydneyHeat: Sorry, in our earlier checks we missed a 47.8 degrees C temperature recorded at an old #Richmond station (now closed) in 1939. 47.3 today still beats the previous #Penrith record.
