Slow warming trend from here ahead of a warm to hot weekend, and a hot start to the work week. Pretty likely northwest VIC will see a couple of days near or above 40C. Melbourne, likely mid to high 30s. Change through TAS earlier on Tuesday and about a day later for northeast Victoria.

There is quite good moisture infeed to the trough so potential for rain and storms near the change, though progs are pretty jumpy so not to confident at this stage.

25C here yesterday so already quite warm. Another warm one today.

Starts to crank up the heat on Sunday, but not unusually hot.

Had 3mm from drizzle overnight. Otherwise, it's very dry, with the landscape starting to brown off. We've had just 3.6mm since the 26th January and will likely end up with our first below average month since September.

The synoptics are slow moving at the moment, with high pressure dominating across southern Australia. A blast of heat is now on its way, starting from tomorrow. Monday and Tuesday should be well into the 30s. Unfortunately, it will also be very windy at times, especially on Tuesday ahead of a cold front.

Should be some rain with the cold front. Currently, it's not looking like a lot, but there might be a few lucky spots that do well.

SAM is still running neutral and the MJO is stuck well out in the Pacific for the better part of this month. We've probably got this broad pattern for a while, probably for the rest of this month and maybe into the first part of March. Would love to be surprised though.

Nice day here yesterday. Unfortunately had too many nice days with things really browned off here now. Plants starting to get pretty stressed.

Warming up today. Should be mid 20s here and 30s for vic. Might nudge 35C locally in southern vic and high 30s on the north. Monday and Tuesday look similar.

Thunder is for the eastern half of Victoria with the change, and shone showers for tas followed by a rainband. Gonna be another big event for southwest Tasmania with locally more than 40mm.

After this progs look pretty dull. Some chance for warm weather and tropical moisture next week.

Moving into the hot ones. Mid to high 30s most of VIC. Mainly mid to high 20s TAS.

Change looks quite strong but won’t have much rain for most. Heavy falls for southwest TAS. Odd shower and storm elsewhere. Hoping to sneak 10mm here, but progs really spraying over a wide range so could be anywhere be 1 and 10mm.

Nothing beats a strong sea breeze to cool off the day, if you're lucky to be on the coast.
Funnily enough it's still 34 in Cranbourne, but 29 in Cranbourne east.

27 in the city now, after a max of 36

Stinker for most of Victoria, many places warmer than expected. TAS a mixed bag with stiff sea breezes keep coastal spots in the low 20s with 30s just inland. No complaints at home where it peaked at 24C🤗

Tomorrow looks horrible in VIC. High 30s to 40s, dry air, nasty gusty winds and a late change. Lucky things are still pretty green for many.

TAS misses the worst of it.

Some showers and storms near the change, but pretty sparse followed by a late rain for TAS, quite heavy in the southwest.

Yes good to get these cool nights between hot days; takes the edge off. Got to 33C here, and now back to 18C.

Storm sirens going off in the golf course across the road. Radar looks ominous for an isolated cell here. Very dark clouds- the type of weather we got in the 90s after a hot day 😁😁😁
