Sydney suffers in heatwave as NSW temperatures soar past 46 degrees Celsius

18:44 EDT

Temperatures at some regional sites in New South Wales have clicked over 46 degrees Celsius today, with one regional NSW town breaking the state record for the highest-ever overnight temperature.

Last night was Australia's hottest on record

15:51 EDT

15:23 EDT
