Heading towards 30 degrees in Gippsland
It may be a cool start to Tuesday in Gippsland but be prepared for temperatures in the high 20s as the week goes on.
Senior forecaster at the Bureau of Meteorology, Richard Carlyon, said the region will reach temperatures we haven't seen for six months.
30 degrees is forecast for Bairnsdale and Orbost on Sunday.
"Northerly winds through most of the week will drag the heat from New South Wales southward into Gippsland," Mr Carlyon said.
