BRACE yourselves, it’s hot outside. In fact, it’s so hot you should just stay indoors or by the pool.

A monster heatwave is gripping Australia and if you’re expecting quick relief, sadly you’re in for a rude and sweaty shock.

Temperatures have already soared to 43.8C in Bankstown and other parts of Sydney’s west and as high as 46.2C at Ivanhoe Airport, in lower western NSW.

The 40C mark has also been exceeded in Gosford on the Central coast and at Tocal in the Hunter Region.

It is now officially the hottest summer in Sydney’s 158 year recorded history — with 10 summer days over 35C, according to Weatherzone.
