It was a warm and partly cloudy day, with storms sweeping through Sydney this afternoon. We had our warmest night since February last night, with 21 in the city, warming up to 27 today. The rest reached 34 degrees in the west. Storms will bring more unsettled weather to Victoria, NSW and southern Queensland. It will bring rain to most of NSW - heaviest in the south-east.

We can expect a cloudy day tomorrow, with scattered showers, and another possible late storm.

Hot, hot, hot! Amber, thank you. That is Nine News for this Monday. I'm Peter Overton. I hope you have a good evening. From us all, goodnight. Supertext captions by
