The Bureau of Meteorology has revised today's fire danger rating to "severe" as Sydney faces warm and windy weather conditions.

It means that there is now a total fire ban in place across not just Sydney but most of the state's north.

Post

No open fires - including incinerators and barbecues burning wood, charcoal or heat beads - are permitted, and grinding, gas cutting, soldering and welding in the open are also banned.

While Sydney is looking at a top temperature of 29 degrees and Penrith at 31 degrees, strong winds are expected later this afternoon.
