Authorities have also issued a warning to people in the areas of North Central and Northern Country weather regions regarding temperature to reach high levels on Thursday and Friday.

The department has said that the areas of New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania will experience heat waves while the most severe temperature is expected in central Western Australia. For the coming days of the week, the temperature is expected to be high, during say as well as night.

The heat waves are a result of the high-pressure system moving into the Tasman Sea. The cold front can bring some relief to the southern parts of the country, dropping the temperature to mid-20s. However, for most parts, heat is expected to stick around and temperature in the town of Bourke could hit up to 45C.
