While part of eastern Australia are getting drenched by above average rainfall, eastern South Australia and western Victoria have scorched today under a virtually cloud free sky.
In fact, WeatherZone records show yesterday was the hottest April day in 13 years for most of eastern SA and western Victoria.
In SA, Murray Bridge reached a whopping 37 degrees, 14 degrees above its April's average.
Adelaide airport reached 34, 12 above average and Mount Gambier topped at 33, 13 above average.
Across the border, Portland reached 31, 13 above average.
Essendon and Melbourne reaching 32 and 33 degrees respectively, both 13 above average.
Such unseasonable temperatures are due to a high pressure system situated over the Tasman directing warm and dry northeasterly winds across the region.
However, a mild and moderate south to southwest change was due to dip temperatures down to the low twenties over western SA overnight and on Friday, while Melbourne is only expected to reach 18 on Saturday, 15 degrees below today's maximum.
