There's a National Heatwave Around The Country This Week

Temperatures are getting HOT and it looks like Summer is here to stay!

A heatwave has been forecast across the nation this week, with every state set to reach temperatures of 40 degrees and over!

Meteorologist Dean Narramore has said that South Australia may suffer the worst, with five days in a row forecasted above 45 degrees.

In Melbourne, the Australian Open gates have opened and the city is abuzz with action. Organisers have updated the tournament's extreme heat policy, to help players stay healthy during the Australian Summer.

The new policy involves compulsory 10 minute breaks in the fourth and fifth sets of men's matches. Play will also be suspended on outdoor courts when their new heat scale reading is at 5.0 or above.

In Sydney, the western suburbs will cop the worst with several days predicted to hit over 40 degrees.

The Bureau of Meteorology currently classifies a heatwave as three or more days of higher than usual temperatures in a location.
