At the weekend, hot air sucked in from the tropics smashed October records in Western Australia. The same pool of hot air has now swept into the southeast.
The southeast, still shaking off the last remnants of Winter, has seen temperatures this week.
South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania all recorded maximums up to 12 degrees above average on Tuesday.
Although the heat is not too exceptional, it certainly would have been felt.
Indeed, many in Melbourne would have been reaching for their crusted over, long forgotten suncream bottles.
Across Bass Strait and the Tasmanian weather was warming up too.
The East Coast and Central districts were notably warm with maximums reaching between five and ten above average on Tuesday.
Hobart hit 25, eight above average and the city's warmest day since last March.
For sun lovers and beach goers alike, the outlook for the weekend is not quite as optimistic.
A deepening Tasman Low, a trough and some onshore winds are likely to bring rain and showers, mainly to coastal regions.
South Australia will fare better than Victoria and Tasmania though.
