Temperatures continue to soar in Australia

Australia continues to sizzle as high summer dries the bush and temperatures hit new records. Sydney has gone through the previous high, setting a new hottest day mark with 45.8 degrees, or 144 degrees Fahrenheit. Tourists arriving from frozen climes buckled on leaving the air-conditioned airport, and even the locals are complaining. Cooler temperatures are expected tomorrow.
