Morgan Pumper from the weather bureau says it will also be windy with gusts around 45Kph.

“If you are planning to head to the beach or head out and about to enjoy the very hot and summer like conditions, just keep in mind we are expecting it to be quite windy and with that we are also seeing an increase in the fire danger rating,” Ms. Pumper said.
