MER­CURY TO HEAD NORTH

Herald Sun - - NEWS - JOSHUA FAGAN

WEATHER records could be shat­tered to­day and to­mor­row as parts of north­ern Vic­to­ria brace for con­sec­u­tive days in the mid-40s.

The Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy said the in­tense heat would come close to top­pling the all-time highs set on Black Sat­ur­day in 2009.

Echuca, Kyabram, Al­buryWodonga, Bendigo and Kerang could all be in for their hottest days on record as tem­per­a­tures soar.

Mil­dura is tipped to be the hottest town in the state, with two straight days of 46C (to­day and to­mor­row), fol­lowed by 45C on Thurs­day.

Weather bureau se­nior fore­caster Michael Efron said there would be no re­lief for the north of the state un­til Sat­ur­day, and warned: “It’s a shock­ing week com­ing up.”
