Our heat puts Melbourne in shade

NORTH-west Victoria is set to bear the brunt of a week-long heatwave beginning today.

While for much of the next week Melbourne residents will be enjoying top ­temperatures in the 20s, Mildura will be sweltering through 40C-plus maximums through the same period.

Five of the next six days have been forecast to be 40C or above with only Sunday dipping into the 30s – albeit only to 38C.
