Just hit 30C here and 33 just over the back of the mountain at Hesket.
A good deal cooler than most places.

Wind change is moving painfully slow through the Bay Heads - just hit the area around Port Lonsdale. Looks like the change has moved through the western Mallee, with a peak of 46.0C.

Currently 36.6C here. Thinking we will see a surge in temps in the next hour pre-frontal in central areas. Gotta be a pretty good chance for a 45C somewhere in the metro now :( :o

Some big temp drops as the change comes through, almost 20c on the coast but less inland. The animals and the cfa will be happy when it arrives.

AWS has hit 43.5c. January record for current site (since 1991) is 43.8c on Jan 14, 2014.

Walpeup with 46.6c is today's warmest so far.

41.4c here and DP of 9c. Wind is WNW but not as gusty as earlier today but will probably pick up with the change.

Wind change surging up the bay. It's about half way up, so probably 30 minutes out from Melbourne. The 4pm forecast looks to be right on track :o

In the end the change has just been a tiny bit too soon for a 47C in the Mallee. Thinking another hour or two and would have been a definite.

BTW 41.6C at Mount Moornapa (at 480m). Guess that about 46C at sea level (bascially the number scored by Avalon). Probably suggests the hottest air mass for us since Black Saturday (or possibly January 2014 which was nearly as hot) :?

Viewbank got to 42.8C at 3.10pm.

The PWS which normally lags / under-reports a bit is showing 43.1C.
