As speculated by various forecasts, the winter of the year 2019 was the coldest winter that was recorded in the United Kingdom and the United States. While the people on this side of Earth was craving some warmth and struggling to keep themselves out of the cold, some other states in the world were almost burned alive due to the unbearably strong summer heat, and these pictures are proof that heat spares no one.
While all that the people of the UK and the USA were asking was for some sun, that exactly has become the worst nightmare of many other states including Australia.

Australia experienced one of the craziest heatwaves in 2019. During the summer, Australia travels close to the sun, adding up to the heat. This is because the country is located in the Southern hemisphere. Also, since the country is surrounded by the ocean, the winter is mild. As per the records, the heatwave of the summer of 2019 was the hottest one faced by Australians, with many external factors fueling this situation.

Summer 2019 did not arrive alone. It also brought some massive bush fires and severe droughts along with it. The severity of this heatwave broke all the previous records. In addition to the heat, vast amounts of winds, massive smoke plumes, and triggering storms also added to the misery of Australians. To simply say how bad these fires were, the breathing air in Sydney was as harmful as smoking 37 cigarettes. The average maximum temperature recorded was 41.9C.
