Heat wave to hit central Australia today

Parts of central southern and eastern Australia is being warned to expect hot conditions to continue through to the weekend. 

The Bureau of Meteorology says excessive heat is moving into the nation’s southeast from northern Australia, due to a slow-moving low pressure trough.

Today temperatures are expected to peak in the mid 40s over inland South Australia, western New South Wales and northern Victoria, with temperatures in the high 30s and 40s though the weekend for parts of New South Wales and the Queensland border region.

The Bureau says the past two summers have been fairly mild and humid and such a prolonged early season heat wave, such as this, has not been seen since November 2009.
