Wagga strap in, it’s going to be a scorcher of a week.
The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting six days of above 40 temperatures.
Monday is looking to be a hot and sunny morning with a maximum forecast of 41 degrees with a slight chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon and early evening.
Tuesday is predicted to reach a top of 43 and hot temperatures continuing the rest of the week.
The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting slight relief with temperatures lowering to a top of 32 on Sunday.
If that all sounds a bit much, The Daily Advertiser has compiled a handy list of seven places to cool off when the heat rises.
Make sure to stay sun safe with hats, sunscreen and plenty of water.
Be aware of other vulnerable members of the community such as the elderly, infants and children, people with a chronic medical condition and those who live by themselves.
The initial signs of heat-related illness may include faintness and dizziness, irritability, thirst, dark urine, headaches and later changes in skin colour, rapid pulse and shallow breathing, vomiting and confusion.
