Heatwave to return to Australia

Extreme’ heatwave to hit Victoria, NSW and South Australia on New Year’s Eve


Soaring temperatures and dry winds are tipped to hit Australia, massively increasing the risk of bushfires and smoke haze for New Year’s Eve.

An “extreme” heatwave is slowly building over Australia’s south, bringing soaring temperatures and dry winds in the coming days.
The warm front is forecast to elevate bushfire danger in parts of the nation’s south as “severe” conditions build.
Monday and Tuesday are tipped to be the worst days for bushfires and smoke haze, just as we’re welcoming in the new year.
Sky News Meteorologist Rob Sharpe said the “extreme” heatwave is currently lingering over northwestern parts of the country, where the mercury is breaking 45C today.
“As we move through the week though, that heat is going to build through southern parts of Australia,” he said.
