Historic High Temperature in Sydney Today

Temperature at Observatory Hill hit 45.8C at 2:55pm today. Previous record was from 1939. I remember my mother telling me how hot it was in the late 1930s in Sydney. She was 7 years old then. My father remembered the German hyperinflation when he was the same age. Seems like these events made similar impressions.
Temperature records at Observatory Hill date to 1859. It hit 41.6C in Canberra which is close to but not a record. Nowra also had a new record high.
