Financial assistance is being offered to farmers impacted by a severe hail storm in October in northern New South Wales.
A severe weather warning is in place for damaging winds up to 90 kilometres per hour in Canberra today.
Newcastle locals hoping for a morning swim ahead of a sweltering day have been left disappointed, with vandals emptying the city's ocean baths.
