Richmond reached 46.3 degrees Celsius just after 2.30 p.m., while the temperature in Bankstown exceeded 45 degrees Celsius.

A severe fire danger rating was issued for the greater Sydney regiony, while much of the rest of the state has a “very high” rating.

Total fire bans are in place for Sydney and the Hunter region.
