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

The record for Australia's all-time highest overnight temperature was smashed last night, just one of the marks to fall in what is becoming a heatwave for the history books.

15:23 EDT
