Some parts of the country, particularly in south Australia, are expected to reach soaring temperatures of over 40 degrees as summer establishes that it's well and truly here.
The ABC reported today (January 4) that a total fire ban has come in effect for Victoria as a result of the scorching heat, with the next few days expected to be "the hottest period since the 2009 bushfire season".
The Bureau of Meteorology has forecasted that Adelaide will reach a sweltering 44 degrees today, with Melbourne, Albury-Wodonga and Alice Springs also exceeding 40 degrees today.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported today that "long-standing" temperature records may also be broken in the next few days as the heat wave boils over parts of the country.
Though the summer heat is usually embraced, the higher temperatures can prove to be too much, causing many Australians to seek relief.
